A superhero called Doubling Dan needs help from class. This interactive resource is fun and engaging. my class love helping Dan by using real fruit and veg alongside the powerpoint to create the number sentences.
An assessment tool to quickly identify if children are on track or an area for concern? I have created this because of the new EYFS statutory framework and the need to reduce in tracking and assessing. I still wanted to make sure I knew which children needed support in particular areas.
I sent this out to parents and children before starting school and they completed it at home and sent it back to school. This helped me get to know each child and I also sent out a copy of one I had completed so that they could get to know me too.
Children are encourage to create their own One Less than story drawing images and telling a story about them e.g. there were 5 balloons and one flew away then there were 4 left… so one less than 5 is 4. Children can create their own stories and draw their own images to help tell their one less than story.

I hide the initial sounds around my room and children use this sheet to find and tick the initial sound off when they find it hidden. It encourages children to recognise and form the letters in an enjoyable activity.
Children can use concrete objects (cubes) to help them support this activity or pictorially cross the cubes out.
The first page includes cubes up to 5 and the second page includes cubes up to 10 using a tens frame.
