Playing bingo is an excellent game to help reinforce children’s understanding of numbers or any key noun vocabulary that you have taught them.
When preparing my class to play I ask the children to choose between a selection of numbers that they have learned e.g 30 – 50. They then write in their chosen numbers in pencil on a grid paper e.g. 4 squares for Year 3 or 9 squares for Year 6.
Then I call out the numbers and the children cover up any called out no’s with a counter. This helps to save endless time on producing lots of individual bingo cards. Using four box grids will enable the children to choose four nouns out of a possible 12 to write in English so that when they hear their noun in the target language, they can cover it up like in number bingo. I encourage the winners to come out and call next time. More shy pupils can choose a friend to help.
The children swap papers after each game so that they all have a new paper to complete. This activity is loved by all children I have taught in KS2.
