Things you can do at home to help
Practise counting to 50. You could take it in turns with your child – you say 1, they say 2, you say 3.

You could say a number (between 0 and 10) and ask your child to say the number they need to add to this number to make 10. You can then play the same game where your child tells you if a number is odd or even (numbers up to 20).

Collect 10 objects from around the home. Place them on a table or on the floor, take some away and ask your child to say how many are left.

Talk to your child about how even numbers end in 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 and odd numbers end in 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9. PLay simple games where you say a random numbers and your child says if that number is odd or even. You could look for numbers in the supermarket and ask if they are odd or even.

At every opportunity, find objects in the home and the environment and name the 3D shape of them e.g cereal boxes, tins of food. This is a great game and can be quick and easy to do. Try counting things in the bath or in books when reading. You can play simple games when you are in the car or at home, that require no resources.
