Starter- Practise writing numbers 1- 10. Discuss and model to the children which numbers they need to practise.
Activity- using objects e.g. small toys, cutlery or counters ask children to work out the answers to the questions below.
- If your child is finding writing numbers challenging focus on the children working out the answers using objects and them verbally telling you the answer.
- If your child does not need support from you read the questions together and then encourage them to write the number sentences independently and work the answers out independently.
- If your child needs more challenging questions please feel free to adapt the questions with larger numbers e.g. answers with two-digit number answers e.g. 13.
Please add more with answers 6,7,8,9 if you want to. We do not wish to overwhelm parents or children with too much. We equally understand some children will be eager to do more so allowing parents to add to lessons if they wish is better for you than giving you an amount that children may find is too much to get through.
