My Secret Number

This is a quick numbers game

You need a paper and pencil

Write the numbers 0 to 12 on a piece of paper.

Ask your child to secretly choose one of the numbers. Then ask him/her a few questions to find out what the number is. Your child can only answer with ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

You can ask questions such as:

  • Is it even?
  • Is it more than 6?
  • Is it between 4 and 8?
  • Does it have a 3 in it?

Once you have guessed the number it is your turn to choose one and you child should ask the questions.


For a harder game, use numbers up to 20 or 40

Share  what you have done with your teacher - write about what you found out, take pictures or post a tweet to your School.
