This week in Maths we are learning about odd and even numbers.


Have a look at the posters below about odd and even numbers.




Activity 1


For this activity, you will need some objects to share. You could use buttons, pasta, lego cubes, etc.


Yasmin and Zach have some bears to share. Which numbers can they share equally?


Have a go at sharing the following numbers. Which numbers can you share? Which numbers cannot be shared equally. Put a tick next to the numbers that can be shared equally and a cross next to the ones that cannot be shared equally.


Activity 2


Today we are going to sort some numbers into odd and even.


Remember odd numbers end in 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9

Even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8


Have a go at sorting the numbers below. Open your blended learning book onto the next double page. On the left hand side write ‘odd numbers’ and on the right hand side write ‘even numbers’.


Cut out each number and stick it on to the right page. Remember to look at the last digit in the number to help you.



Activity 3


Today we are going to be looking at an 100 square to find odd and even numbers.


First, complete the 100 square by filling in the missing numbers. Make sure your numbers are the right way round!


Next colour the even numbers in one colour and the odd numbers in another colour. Can you spot a pattern?



If your child is confident with numbers to 100, use the 100 square below

If your child finds numbers to 100 tricky, use the 50 square below.

Activity 4


Today we are going to do an investigation. Mrs Charles thinks that every pack of smarties has an even number of smarties in them. Is she right or wrong?


Count how many smarties are in each pack. Is there an odd number of smarties or an even number? How do you know?


If you don’t have smarties at home, choose something else to use as your boxes. You could use raisins or a bag of oranges. Your grown up could even put some objects (e.g. pasta) in a Tupperware box for you to investigate.
