Hello families and welcome to the second Early Years maths post in the CLF home learning blog. If you are from a school in the Cabot Learning Federation, you have probably been asked to visit this page by teachers from your school.

This activity has been created by our team to support your child in developing a deep understanding of the numbers up to ten. As well as opportunities to practise counting and understand that rearranging objects doesn’t affect the total, they will develop their understanding that larger numbers can be made by combining smaller numbers. This is the basis for all future calculating and needs plenty of practice in Early Years and Key Stage 1. The examples on the document (download below) are for the number five but you can change this to smaller numbers if your child is not confident and move on to larger numbers (up to ten) if they develop confidence with numbers up to five.
