Welcome to Week Five of Maths learning . In school we have been learning to count on and count back - this helps children to understand addition and subtraction more easily .


This week we are going to be focusing on counting back. You will need a number line like in the previous lessons to support your child with the activities . You can find examples of number lines online but if you create a Twinkl account you will be able to download and print one.

A) Play the Top Marks Helicopter game ( Counting back , between 1 and 10) . Listen for the instructions and count back to find the answer.
