Can you play this game to practise today's learning? Counting backwards from 10 or from 20 in sequence. Can you try ordering the non consective numbers (those that are not 'next door' numbers) from largest to smallest?smiley

Can you watch the following video. Can you make some lego/block towers to 10 and some little number cards on paper and do my activity at home? Today I would like you to choose two numbers and decide which is largest/smallest. Can you then order three numbers from largest to smallest. As a challenge could you choose 4 or more of your towers and order, again most to fewest or largest to smallest.


Adults when you are supporting this learning please encourage the use of the mathematical language; most, fewest, largest, smallest, less. Send me some photos of this activity in action!
