It is helpful if you include ‘over-learning’ of counting and number recognition during your day.  We might do this in school by counting down coming to the carpet or counting up when we line up.  At home you could count how many small steps it is to the kitchen, how many giant steps. Count another family member, is it the same or different, why? 


White Rose Maths, which we use at school, have created videos for reception.  We are going to use these from this point forward.  


Please watch the video, look at the task (click on ‘Get the Activity’ next to the video or download at bottom of page) and complete it. On occasion we may also put other suggestions of activities that could be completed within the topic if you have time. 


This week will be ‘Growing 6, 7, 8! - Week 1’. Please follow the link to find the videos and tasks (all sessions are on this link)
