   Good Afternoon Reception


Did you enjoy  the story this morning? 


This afternoon we will continue with our maths . I have added a counting song to warm up to below.

I would like you to work on your number writing and counting today.

Start off with number quick write.

Ask your grown-up to call out a number and you write it down. Make sure the numbers are the right way round and formed correctly. 

Adults some of the children are working within numbers to ten and twenty and some with numbers up to 100 (and beyond). Call out different numbers within their range for them to write down.

After number quick write I want you to do some counting. You will need some things to count.

 You can use socks, Lego, dolls, cars, crayons, or anything you like that you can move or count. 

If you do not have anything then you can draw them instead. 


Can you count 6 objects?

Can you count 16?

Can you count 12?

Can you count 10 objects?

Can you count 20 objects?

Can you count 25?

Can you count 25?

What about 30 objects? 

See how many you can count or draw.

Remember to count the objects as you move them so that you do not get in a muddle!


In your learning packs there are lots of counting sheets for you to complete. You pick one to do for today.

Your last challenge for today is to continue your winter learning. Last week you were investigating and finding out about winter.

Today I would like you to remind your adult about the things you can remember about winter.

Can you find any more interesting facts about winter? 

I have added another ppt (below)for your adult to discuss with you.


Have a lovely afternoon.
