Monday 6th July

Today I want you to have a go at finding 1 more than a number.

Choose some objects - you will need 10!

For each question, count out the first amount, then add one more - the answer will be the next number you would say if you are counting on. So one more than 6 is 7 - because 6 comes after 7!

I have written you ten number sentences to have a go at...

5 + 1 =

6 + 1 =

7 + 1 =

8 + 1 =

9 + 1 =

4 + 1 =

3 + 1 =

2 + 1 =

1 + 1 =

0 + 1 =

Tuesday 7th July

Today I want you to have a go at finding 1 less than a number.

Choose some objects - you will need 10!

For each question, count out the first amount, then take one away (subtract one) - the answer will be the number you would say next if you are counting backwards. So one less than 5 is 4 - because 4 is one number smaller than 5!

I have written you ten number sentences to have a go at...

6 - 1 =

7 - 1 =

8 - 1 =

9 - 1 =

10 - 1 =

5 - 1 =

4 - 1 =

3 - 1 =

2 - 1 =

1 - 1 =

Wednesday 8th July

Today I want you to practise one more, one less.

I am going to give you a list of numbers - can you write the number sentences to find out one more and one less by yourself?

Thursday 9th July

Today I want you to have a go at estimating - this is making a sensible guess about how many objects you can see before counting to check.

It's really important that you just have a quick check and don't count them until you've made your guess!

Questions for each picture:

• how many do you estimate?
• how many are there actually?
• did you make a sensible guess/estimate?
• did you guess more or less than the actual amount?

Friday 10th July

Today I would like you to start learning to count in 2s.

I have found a video that will hopefully help you - can you move along to the music too?

It starts with counting to and from 20 as a warm up, and then at 1:05 he moves on to count in 2s. See if you can have a go a few times and then remember it afterwards.

Below are some pictures - can you count them in 2s rather than 1 at a time?
