Here are some maths activities linked to the topic.

  • Look at some coins 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p 50p £1. Sort them in order of amount.
  • How much do the ice creams cost? (See sheet below)
  • Use the coins to buy the ice creams. (See below)
  • Ask your family and friends what is their favourite flavour ice-cream. Make a pictogram to record the results. (See below) 


  • Choose 5 different containers i.e. bowl, mug, pint glass, measuring jug and washing up bowl. Say each will hold a different amount of liquid. Talk about how we can measure capacity in non-standard units i.e. using the same size plastic cup to fill each with water and see how many cups it can hold. We can also measure with standard units i.e. millilitres or litres. Estimate how many plastic cups each container holds. Remember that an estimate is a guess and we can compare each of our guesses i.e. if we think a jug will hold 4 cups,then a mug will be less.

You could set out a table like below to record your results:


How many cups - Estimate

How many cups – Actual number







Measuring jug










Once you have carried out the investigation, can they then order the containers from smallest to largest capacity?

Ask questions about the results i.e. how many more cups can the measuring jug hold than the mug? How much water does the mug and bowl hold altogether?



  • Play a seaside movement game. 

Show the children each picture card and discuss the name and movement for each activity. (Picture cards below)

Some examples include:

Jump over the waves – jog around the space and jump over the waves as they reach the beach.  The adult could shout ‘waves’ to encourage the children to jump. The waves could also be made different sizes to encourage the children to jump higher or lower.

Digging a big sand hole – kneel or squat on the floor and use hands to make digging motions using a pretend spade.

Collecting shells – walk around the space, pretending to pick up shells to place in a bucket.

Sunbathing – lay on your back on the floor.

Playing with a beach ball – pretend to throw and catch a beach ball to a friend or individually.  Maybe the wind might blow the ball away for the children to chase too!

Build a sandcastle – sit on the floor and pretend to fill a bucket and make a sandcastle.

Putting on suncream – stand still and rub hands over your face and body pretending to put on suncream.
