You start your journey here at Free Maths Games by selecting a maths topic.Each topic consists of between 4 and 16 question and answer pairs that you can access in all the games, lessons and tests. Topics are chosen on this 'Topics' page and will remain selected until you return to this page and choose a different one.

Our maths topics for Reception age kids (age 4 to 5) are carefully designed to be age-appropriate in terms of difficulty and scope. Each topic is located within a certain Category and sub-category. For instance, The topic "Bridge through 10" is in the sub-category "Adding numbers" within the Category "Addition".

Please see in the interface above the topics that are available for your selected location and age range.

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.

How to choose

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:

  1. By level (reception, primary and secondary)
  2. Into broad categories

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.
