# Make 5

### Link to the Number Framework:

Number Facts, Stage 0-3

### What you need:

• A pack of cards. Use only the ace, 2, 3 and 4 for each suit, 16 cards in total.

### What to do:

• Deal out 6 cards in a row, face up.
• Players take turns to pick up 2 or more cards that add to 5. For example 1+4, 2+1+1+1 or 3+2.
• At the end of each player’s turn, the cards they have removed are replaced from the deck.
• The game finishes when no further combinations can be found. The winner is the player with the greatest number of cards.

### What to expect your child to do:

Be able to instantly recognise combinations of numbers that add to 5.
