Ideas and resources to support learning at home

  • Younger children should have regular practise at recognising numbers up to 10. Lots of counting and grouping of everyday objects will help to reinforce good number sense.
  • When children are ready to start writing numbers, correct formation is really important. Try this 0 - 20 Number Formation sheet for practise.
  • Counting on and backwards is a really crucial skill to master. Number tracks and number lines can help reinforce this.
  • Consolidation of number bonds to 10 is a really important next step and helps massively when adding and subtracting. There are loads of free resources out there and you can play simple games yourself but why not try a Number Bonds to 10 Wordsearch or a Number Bonds to 10 Matching Game?
  • Once you have mastered number bonds to 10, move on to 20 through to 100.
  • By the end of primary school, children should know, off-by-heart, the times-tables from 1x1 to 12x12. Regular practise is really helpful and there are loads of free online games to make the learning fun.
