Number and Shape, Space and Measure

Spring - Number of the Week

Throughout this term, the children will be learning the numbers 9, 10 and 11! The children will count up to, beyond and down from all of these numbers. They will explore making these amounts. They will also learn to solve questions such as one more and one less and practise adding one digit numbers together using a range of resources.

We will continue to sing a different number rhyme each week. Our rhymes this half term include Five buns in a bakers and a range of Shape rhymes.

If you would like to learn some new rhymes or number songs with your child, we highly recommend this BBC website.

Rhymes of the Week

This term the children have been learning a range of counting rhymes to help them count up to 5. Here are some of the songs we have learnt so far:

  • Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • One, two, three, four, five
  • Five Little Ducks

If you would like to sing some nursery rhymes with your child, the following website has many different rhymes to support your child learn their numbers to 5 and 10.


9th September

We will be counting and reading numbers 0-20. During Maths sessions, we will be counting different actions e.g. Can you do 6 jumps? Can you stamp your feet 10 times? This will help the children to develop an understanding of amounts.

The Number of the Week is... 2!

Number challenge - Can you make the number 2 out of play doh? Can you make any objects that come in sets of 2? For example 2 feet, 2 eyes, 2 wheels on a bike.
