Be inspired to believe, achieve and succeed together

Week 2

This week we will be looking at representing numbers using a ten frame and counting forwards/backwards to 10.


See picture below.

A ten frame is a rectangle made up of 10 squares.


Ask an adult to draw one out a ten frame for you, then practise placing different amounts of counters/coins or cubes in each squares. How many do you have? How many more do you need to fill the ten frame?


The video and worksheet will give you some examples (you do not need to print out the sheet).

Counting forward

You might want to make your own number track like the one below using resources you have at home.


You might like to watch the video and discuss the questions on the worksheet.

Count backwards

Remember the importance of practical experiences, the videos and worksheets are just a guide to support your child's learning. 


Choose a number and ask your child to count back from that number, repeat using any number from 1 to 10.
