Food Group Sorting Game: ‘All About 6’

About This Primary Resource

A fun and engaging game designed to help familiarise children with different food items and food groups as well as build an awareness of the different ways that the number 6 can be formulated. The aim of the game is to collect 6 cards from the food group shown on their board by taking turns to spin the spinner. To complete their board they must spin a combination of numbers that totals exactly 6. Suggested question to ask when playing the game: "You have x number of cards - how many more do you need to make 6?"

This game can be adapted to suit a variety of learning intentions and different ages and stages. It can be played without the boards as a simple snap or pairs game to teach the youngest children vocabulary and early counting skills.

We also have versions on our site where the objective is to collect either 8 or 10 cards.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.
