Maths

We will be continuing to focus on recognising and writing our numbers up to 10 this week and counting carefully. The children will recognise the number, write the number and take part in different activities linked to that number. See if your child can recognise and find these numbers at home. They are also trying really hard to practice counting using numbers up to at least 10. We start off every session by finding out how many children are here where the children confidently count each member of the class. We then encourage the children to count in the different activities they take part in. Please encourage your child to count when they are at home e.g. counting how many stairs there are to bed or how many orange segments they have etc.

Daily Calendar:

Every day please encourage your child to sing the days of the week song and work out what the date it is by counting one more. You can also encourage your child to talk about the weather and the season. The children enjoy doing this activity every day and are excellent at remembering the different days!

Keep watching Numberblocks to help your child to recognise the different numbers. The children seem to really enjoy learning the different numbers from this educational learning site.
