Maths this week

This week during maths the children have  continued  to engage with activities that underline the purpose of counting – to find out ‘how many’ objects there are altogether.  Our key focus this week has been deepening the children’s understanding of 5 as a quantity by linking the number itself to the 5 fingers on one hand.

How you can help at home:

  • When praising your child, ask for a ‘High 5.’
  • When tidying up, set counting challenges, eg.  Who can pick up 5 pieces of Lego and put them away?  Use your fingers to show the quantity required.
  • Ask questions that call for counting eg.  How many cups are on the table?  Can you pick up 5 sticks from the garden?


Enjoy your week
