Numeracy Live Lesson 1 - KS1 / First Level

This pirate-themed Live Lesson sees CBBC’s Rhys Stephenson and Mr Smith from Bitesize Daily hunt for buried treasure, learning maths skills along the way.

They count, compare and order numbers up to 20 and beyond 20, and learn about the greater than, less than and equals symbols.

This series of weekly Live Lessons for Autumn 2020, is designed to support children in catching up on literacy and numeracy as they return to school after lockdown.

Each week, we published two lessons, one for KS1/First Level and one for KS2/First & Second Level. The lessons are designed for use in the classroom, but are also suitable to be used at home should schools be closed again.

Please note that this lesson was published in 2020 and we are no longer reviewing emails and messages from schools for inclusion in the lesson or on the page.
