To help your child at home you can:
- Count with your child to 20.
- Ask them which number comes after another: What's one more than 17?
- Include maths into your daily routines: I have 5 oranges and 3 apples. How many do I have altogether?
- Help your child to begin forming the numbers. When writing number they all begin at the top.
- Recognise and name shapes in your home. Show your child how to describe the shapes: It has four corners and four sides.
- Sing counting songs.
- Practice your child's key words with them.
- Listen to your child read their book and record your experiences in the home learning diary.
- Read stories together and talk about the characters, setting and plot.
- Sing nursery rhymes and play rhyming games.
- Help your child to form the letters and ask them which sounds the letters make.
