# Max Maths, Year 1, Game time, Counting to 10

In an exciting Max Maths game designed for Year 1 pupils, children are encouraged to get active while practising their counting skills. The game, titled 'Counting to 10', is simple and interactive, requiring the children to stand up and walk around the classroom to begin with. The teacher then adds an element of fun and urgency by calling out a random number within the range of one to ten.

Upon hearing the number, the pupils must quickly use their counting abilities to form a group with the exact number of classmates as the number called out. The game tests not only their counting but also their ability to collaborate and move swiftly. If a child finds themselves unable to join a group because all groups have the correct number of members, they must sit down. The game continues until the last few nimble and alert learners are left standing, and these remaining pupils are declared the winners of the game. This activity is a delightful way to combine physical movement with fundamental maths skills in a classroom setting.
