Home reading books will be changed or checked twice a week. Please make sure you are reading with your child every day for about 10 minutes. We recommend reading each book 2 times: once for decoding the words and the second time for meaning when they are more familiar with the words.





We are currently working on number order, particularly where numbers are placed on a line. Quiz your children on what number comes before and after number between 1-20! We are also working on counting accurately with a group of objects up to 20.


There are additionally lots of fun games to be found on

**Don't forget the value of games such as snakes and ladders for counting!
