-Count forwards and backwards from any number.
-Count in 2’s to 20, 5’s to 50 and 10’s to 100 (forwards first then try backwards)
-Look for numbers everywhere (on packaging labels, car registration plates, door numbers etc.)
-Practise writing numbers in sand, flour, mud, and paint, as well as with pens and pencils.
-Practise blending sounds to read words
-Look for sounds and words in papers, in magazines, and on packaging.

-Make letter and words with play dough.
-Read books with your child and ask them some questions e.g. Do you like it? What might happen next?
What do you think they should do now? Which is your favourite part? Do you know any other stories like this?
