There are lots of games you can play with your child to help them count forwards – and here are some that will help them count backwards, too! Ready for some fun challenges?
Singing by numbers
Forwards and backwards
Guess the number
Seasonal: Make a gift list for Christmas/the holidays – what’s on your list? What do you need to get for your friends and family?
You can play guessing games anywhere and everywhere. It’s an easy way to make a walk to school, or a car or bus journey more fun. Just think of a number between 0-30 and get your child to guess what it is. You can help them by saying ‘higher’ or ‘lower’.
Ask your child to write about a castle they would build for a King or Queen. They could think about how many rooms it would have, what might be in the rooms, and what they’d be used for.
