55 Tens and twenties all in a row Family fun activities and board game learning to count in tens and twenties. Parent description: Have fun with these games and support your child to relate their comprehensive knowledge of numbers up to one hundred, to move further on, to work with numbers up to two hundred.

In the ‘all in a row’ game your child is challenged to make a choice- very powerful for learning.

65 Loopy counting Family fun activities and dice game learning to take away by counting back. Parent description:Eating treats and then replacing the number eaten gets the ‘take away’ and ‘counting back’ learning journey started in a fun practical way! A number line can be a powerful learning tool giving insight into the way numbers work from the very beginning through to A Level. The second game is based around a loopy number line carefully designed to ensure your child’s count is between the numbers rather than being led to the wrong answer by counting how many numbers lie in-between. Have a laugh with the final story game, seriously challenging everyone’s memory!

Parent information: Building upon earlier activities these games and activities will help your child to extend their knowledge of the patterns in our number system up to thirty. Play with your child handling the number cards, move them around, talk about the numbers together, hide some of them and your child will have lots of support and opportunity to learn the order of the numbers and the patterns that can help you to remember the order. With more numbers missing from the sequence the second game develops this learning to the next level. Play with hidden coins in the final game and there may be some surprising results!
