There are 50 reception topics to choose from at Free Maths Games. Our maths topics for preschool are made up of between 4 and 16 question and answer pairs (both the written form and a robot voice speaking those questions and answers).
A topic is selected at the beginning of a session at Free Maths Games and will be remembered when you move between games or activities. The maths for the topic is carefully constructed to match the UK Reception Maths Curriculum. This means that you should see similar maths problems to those your child is seeing at reception for any particular subject. Please let us know if that is not the case.
There are 50 reception topics to choose from at Free Maths Games in 11 categories. These categories are: Colour, Shape, Size, Position, More or less, Count, Addition, Subtraction, Measure, Money and Time. Click here to see a list of all the topics with descriptions.
See the help box below for instructions on choosing a topic here at Free Maths Games.
Click on the "1. Start" button in the top navigation bar - that brings you to this reception level topic selection page. On the topic selection page you will see that the topics are divided up:
Since you are currently within the reception section of Free Maths Games you will see the reception topics. The reception year will have loaded. The broad categories available will load. Click on a category to see the available sub-categories and topics.
For example, if you choose "Reception", then the category: "Position" you will be offered a choice of position sub-categories. Click on each sub-category to view the available topics.
When you click on the name of a topic, the topic will load into the lesson page (once a topic has loaded it will be available for all activities and will not have to be downloaded again) and the lesson start page will be displayed. You can choose to do the lesson or jump immediately to the games using that topic.
