In Maths, our last topic was counting in 2, 5 and 10’s. We sometimes call this skip-counting or counting in steps. It is the skill needed to be acquired before learning times tables. I have set this as a home learning task on Mathletics for you and have included some links below to games/ activities that you could do at home. Don’t forget, reciting these in ascending, descending and starting from a random order is also very important.

This is a fun, video that we have danced and sang along too many times in class.
