It would be great if children could look for patterns and shapes around their homes smiley



In maths we will be doing lots of counting objects, reading and writing numbers in numerals.


Try starting to count forwards and backwards from different numbers from a range of 1 to 5 (or a bigger range for the eager ones surprise)
