In Reception we are learning to count forwards and backwards to 20!
We are also focusing on a 'special' number each week.
We not only look at the number itself and its place on the number line, but look for that number in the environment; count out that number of objects; find different ways to make that number eg 3 and 2 makes 5 and so does 4 and 1.
We have also been looking at money and how we can make our special number with different coins and then use that amount to pay for our snack. Each week we also look at shapes which have the same number of faces/sides as our special number; look at height, weight, capacity and pattern.
We learn all of this through fun, play based activities.
