Train game


Build knowledge of numbers past 10 with the train game. Each carriage is a tens frame that children fill with ‘passenger’ cubes after rolling a dice. Encourage children to count using whole tens where possible. Use language such as ‘2 whole tens and 3 more’. The game can take a while, to speed things up children can play in pairs or with dice/spinners with larger numbers.

  • Tens frame activities
  • Active maths
  • Give children lots of opportunities to count their cubes and explain what the numbers mean
