This term I'd love you to look at how numbers are represented in different ways. Below are some examples of subitising. It allows your child to recognise the number of objects in a small group without the need to count them...

The ability to recognise numbers of things without counting them develops from an early age. It helps your child build visual images for numbers, which in turn helps them learn number facts! Lets work on this because this understanding will help them to separate and combine numbers and will accelerate understanding of addition and subtraction. smiley


Playing with dice and dominoes will also help build these skills... have fun!



Numbers - have fun looking at numbers, counting, number formation and recognising how numbers are represented!


Can you play shops with the fruit in your fruit bowl?

How much is a pear?

How much are strawberries?

Use some real coins to count the right amount!

We have working on number formation in nursery and we are getting really good at it but we sometimes forget which way round our numbers go! This shows the correct formation for you to practise at home!   If you've got a printer, feel free to download it.
