The goal for all Reception children is to be able to count, recognise, order and find one more and one less than numbers to 20 by the end of the year.

This can be done in lots of fun ways, such as singing songs, counting everyday actions and objects, playing board games or role playing.

We are also lucky to have access to NumBots, a fun and motivational online maths game for younger children.  Your child’s login details will be sent home soon.

Practise writing names, handwriting and forming letters in cursive script by using the Letterjoin website.
