To know the position of numbers to 10 and their relationship to other numbers.

Recognise that a count starts with nothing (zero) and increases equally by one each time.


Look at the number cards from 0 to 10. Cut these out and make a tower of cubes to match the value on the card.


Order values in a linear way, noticing and comparing their positions to each other and key benchmarks.


Using the towers from yesterday, can you match the towers to a number line.

Practice the count – 1 more, 1 less.

Use the number line to order tens frame representations of the numbers 0-10. Like this:

Estimate relative position using benchmark numbers.

Have a blank number line and explain that this is going to become our number line from 0 to 10. Have zero (0), five (5) and ten (10) represented either as a dot pattern, Numicon© or a tower of cubes etc. Ask the children to place the representations on the blank number line where they thing they should go.

Fingerprint rainbow fish 


Can you use some finger paints to make scales onto the rainbow fish? Or use pens and pencils to make scales onto a fish? How many colours are in a rainbow? Can you name them all?

Fish like to blow bubbles in the water. Fish need oxygen to survive. Fish get their own oxygen by floating to the surface and blowing bubbles.

Can you make a bubble picture using an old plastic bottle, paper cup or using a large bowl and a straw? 

Use the instructions on Thursday to make your own CD fish.
