It is helpful if you include ‘over-learning’ of counting and number recognition during your day.  We might do this in school by counting and clapping as we line up or counting round a circle.  At home you could count how long it takes to put 4 toys away or to walk from one place to another? Children love timers and playing with the stop watch and timer functions, these are available on mobile phones and most devices.  


We are continuing to use White Rose Maths videos to support home learning. 


Please watch the days 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/challenge that could be completed within the topic.  Please only complete these if you have time/wish to.
