Number Work

The children have been exploring numbers. They have been learning to:


  • organise and categorise objects; 
  • select a small number of objects from a group when asked;
  • make comparisons between quantities;
  • use some language of quantities, such as ‘more’ and ‘a lot’;
  • know that a group of things change in quantity when something is added or taken away;
  • recite and recognise numbers;
  • know that numbers identify how many objects are in a set;
  • represent numbers using fingers, marks on paper or pictures;
  • match numeral and quantity correctly;
  • compare two groups of objects, saying when they have the same number;
  • separate a group of three or four objects in different ways, beginning to recognise that the total is still the same;
  • estimate how many objects they can see and check by counting them;
  • use the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ to compare two sets of objects;
  • find the total number of items in two groups by counting all
  • of them.
