Under the Sea Maths Game: All About 10

About This Primary Resource

A fun and engaging 'under the sea' themed game designed to help children develop an awareness of the different ways that the number 10 can be formulated. Players must spin the spinner with the aim of collecting 10 cards from the category on their board (either: clownfish, sharks, crabs, whales or turtles). They must spin a combination of numbers that totals exactly 10. So for example, if the spinner lands on 4 and then on their second turn it lands on 5, the player would need it to eventually land on 1 in order to complete the board. If it landed on any other number they would have to try again on their next turn.

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 aim is to collect either 6 or 8 'under the sea' cards.

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.

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!

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!
