Recognising numbers and counting on. The children may need the support of a numberline to 20 for this activity. You can print one off below, or make your own - which is a great opportunity for the children to practise writing their numbers in order. The game involves recognising numbers (you can choose your level). Then counting on. The language varies in this game, so the children may need some support to understand at first. The numberline will help or they can count on in their heads.
Use the activity sheet to count the numbers of minibeasts in the hotel. The children may recognise the patterns in the houses as they are the same as the numicon we used yesterday. Again, none of these sheets need printing if you'd prefer.
After, they can work out how many more minibeasts are needed to make the hotel full (20). They can write the sums eg -
14 + 6 = 20
11 and 9 makes 20
