This term we will be learning our numbers 6 - 10. We will learn to count to each number, recognise the numeral, build the number using practical resources, recognise 1 more and 1 less than each number and recognise it on a number line.


At home, you can practise writing your numbers 0-10 or you can play some maths games by clicking on the link below.

Maths is also embedded in everyday life. When children are playing or helping at home, they can apply their maths skills. Below are some ideas to help you:


  • Cooking. Measure ingredients and set the timer together.
  • Practise counting up to twenty and then back to one.
  • Find the same amount of different items to help your child understand what numbers mean. For example, find 3 spoons, 3 hats, or 3 socks.
  • Talk about the shape and size of objects, e.g. big car, round ball, rectangular box. Ask questions like "pass me the biggest box", or "which is the smallest shoe?".
  • Play with items like shells, bottle tops, beads, Lego and compare them. Try making patterns with them together.
  • Put items in order. You could do this by weight, height or size. Ask your child to help you organise items around the house.
  • Make patterns with objects, colouring pencils, paint or Play-Doh.
  • Build structures with Duplo, Lego or boxes.
  • Solve problems. Work out "how many altogether" and "how many more". As your child questions such as "We have 3 red apples and 2 green apples, so how many apples do we have altogether?".
