Reading, Writing and Ordering

Your child needs to:

  • recognise the number names to 20, say them clearly and read and write them
  • count forwards or backwards, from any number in a sequence 0 to 20
  • know that numbers larger than 9 are formed by combining more than one digit and that the ‘teens’ numbers start with the digit 1
  • see and use the patterns in numbers to 20
  • understand that, as you count on the number becomes larger, and becomes smaller when counting back

Counting

Your child needs to:

  • use strategies, such as placing objects in a line, to help them count accurately and to compare the numbers of objects in small groups of objects
  • represent groups of objects using equipment, fingers, drawing, marks and numerals
  • demonstrate understanding of one-to-one correspondence, to make an accurate comparison when matching objects in two sets
  • use counting to compare the number of items in two small sets, identifying the two totals and saying which is the larger and which the smaller of the two totals
