An extract from the ten teaching ideas for using number squares in maths lessons:

  • Counting practice (KS1) – Use the number grid to help children practice counting from 1 to 100. Start by asking children to count out loud as they point to each number.
  • Identifying patterns (KS1/KS2) – The number grid can help children recognise number patterns. For example, children can learn that the last digit of each number in the column increases by one as they move down or remains the same as they move across.
  • Addition and subtraction (KS1/KS2) – Use the number grid as a visual aid for teaching addition and subtraction. For instance, to subtract 10 from a number, children can simply move one row up on the grid.
  • Multiplication and division (KS2) – The number grid can also be used to teach multiplication and division. To explain the concept of multiplication as repeated addition, have children count in multiples (e.g. count by 2s, 5s, or 10s) using the grid.
  • Place value (KS2) – Use the number grid to reinforce understanding of place value. Ask children to identify how the tens and ones digits change as they move horizontally or vertically across the grid.
