Main Focus: To know one more than numbers to 20. To know one less than numbers to 20. This is a key area of maths that we would like you to focus on this half term with your child. Start with counting on one more than small numbers and when your child is secure move on to one more than numbers to 20. Then try doing one less, then mix between less and more. Remember little and often is key to success! We have included a few ideas of how you can help your child learn these skills, but feel free to come up with your own. Please also feel free to bring in photos, pictures or work that your child has completed at home to go on our super home learning maths board. The children are able to earn stars for their class each time they do this to win prizes each half term. If you need any support your child’s class teacher will be happy to help. Everyday activities Online How many steps? Upstairs? Too the car? What would one more be? One less? Remember each child has access to Education City where there are lots of games to play to help them learn. How many trees/cars/people can we count along the way to school?

Or one less? Point to a number/place a counter on a number – what number is one more or one less? Match pairs or threes of numbers to show one more or less. Use cards to make a domino activity so the numbers get smaller or bigger each time instead of matching. Playing Use your child’s favourite toys to engage them in their learning. Teach the teddy!
