Mini Maths

We are working on counting accurately.

This involves touching each object one-at a time as you say the number names in order.

It is initially easier to count a smaller set of objects.


Singing number songs will help children to remember the order of the number names:

Counting 1-10 Song


One to Ten and Back Again

Including counting in your everyday experiences at home can have a big impact on children's learning:

  • You could count the number of people in your house, plates on the table or bottles in the fridge, as well as counting toys as your child plays (cars, animals, dolls etc.).
  • Saying the number names as you step on each stair and count the stairs as you are going up or down will really help children to remember the order of the numbers.

This week, we are also looking at comparing sizes and weights.

We will be touching/exploring and comparing objects relating to autumn including leaves, conkers, pine cones, apples (relating to autumn harvest). 

You can look at the shapes of the leaves.

Can you see the pointed leaves?

Can you see the curved leaves?

Now can you look at the size of the leaves. Do this activity next;
