A PowerPoint providing a series of warm up activities for Year 2 students across the curriculum.

This teaching resource is an interactive PowerPoint that provides a series of mathematical warm-up activities that cover areas across the curriculum. You can do these quick activities to help warm up for a particular focus lesson, or use them to break up the day to keep students fresh for learning. Some activities supply instructions for interactive games and other are interactive templates that you can display on your classroom whiteboard with a projector.

Each activity has direct links to learning goals in the Australian Curriculum.

Investigate number sequences, initially those increasing and decreasing by twos, threes, fives and tens from any starting point, then moving to other sequences

Identify practical activities and everyday events that involve chance. Describe outcomes as ??likely?? or ??unlikely?? and identify some events as ??certain?? or ??impossible??

Three-Dimensional Space - sorts, describes, represents and recognises familiar three-dimensional objects, including cones, cubes, cylinders, spheres and prisms

Two-Dimensional Space - manipulates, sorts, represents, describes and explores two-dimensional shapes, including quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons and octagons

Investigate number sequences, initially those increasing and decreasing by twos, threes, fives and ten from any starting point, then moving to other sequences

Identify practical activities and everyday events that involve chance. Describe outcomes as â€˜likelyâ€™ or â€˜unlikelyâ€™ and identify some events as â€˜certainâ€™ or â€˜impossibleâ€™

Recognise, continue and create pattern sequences, with numbers, symbols, shapes and objects, formed by skip counting, initially by twos, fives and tens

Partition, rearrange, regroup and rename two- and three-digit numbers using standard and non-standard groupings; recognise the role of a zero digit in place value notation

Add and subtract one- and two-digit numbers, representing problems using number sentences, and solve using part-part-whole reasoning and a variety of calculation strategies

Multiply and divide by one-digit numbers using repeated addition, equal grouping, arrays, and partitioning to support a variety of calculation strategies

Use mathematical modelling to solve practical problems involving additive and multiplicative situations, including money transactions; represent situations and choose calculation strategies; interpret and communicate solutions in terms of the situation

Recognise, describe and create additive patterns that increase or decrease by a constant amount, using numbers, shapes and objects, and identify missing elements in the pattern

Recognise, compare and classify shapes, referencing the number of sides and using spatial terms such as “opposite”, “parallel”, “curved” and “straight”

Create different graphical representations of data using software where appropriate; compare the different representations, identify and describe common and distinctive features in response to questions

Recognise and explain the connection between addition and subtraction as inverse operations, apply to partition numbers and find unknown values in number sentences

Hey Gabrielle, thank you for reaching out to us. After creating these resources,, we adapted them to become Daily Warm Up PowerPoints. These are available from Foundation to Year 6. Each one includes ten weeks worth of daily warm up activities in literacy and numeracy. We are currently creating three more for each year level.
You can find them by following this link:

Hey Alana, we are currently in the works for a Year 6 and below Warm Up PowerPoints. We plan to release these over December/January, before the next school year begins.
