P1 Numeracy – Wednesday 25th March

Learning Intention: We are learning to count. (in 1s, 2s, 5s and10s)

Success Criteria
– I know the number sequence forwards to 30.
– I know the number sequence backwards from 30.
– I can skip count in twos.
– I can skip count in fives.
– I can skip count in tens.


*Throw and catch or roll a ball back and forth with an adult whilst counting up to 30 and back. It is important that your child only says a number each time the ball is caught. For further challenge, this can be done for counting in 5s and 10s.
*You can use your jotter to practise writing number sequences in 1s, 2s 5s and 10s.
*Count all your paired socks. Remember to count in 2s, as each pair is made of 2 socks.
*Count all the fingers and toes in your house, you’ll need to count in fives to find the total.
*Use 2p, 5p and 10p coins to help you count. Find as many of one coin as you can, lay them out and count in 2s, 5s or 10s to find the total.

When your child is familiar with counting in 1s, 2s 5s and 10s. Ask them to listen and spot what number you have missed when counting. e.g 5,10,15,20,__, 30,35,40
