Number Fun


We make learning number fun in Reception!


Using lots of different activities and resources. Here are just a few examples...

The children have the opportunity to use:


  • The iPads, using apps like SPARK ART to help with number formation.

  • We use the Interactive White Board on websites like TOPMARKS and ICT GAMES.

  • Using paint/foam/water and sand to form or identify numbers/shapes.

  • Youtube for number songs and counting.

  • Using 3D blocks we can use our imagination to build and talk about the properties of the shapes.

  • Use a wide variety of sorting toys to sort for colour and size as well as using them to make patterns.

  • Money is introduced into role play to help the children become familiar with recognising the coins and begin to add them together.
