Week Commencing 29th June
Number formation and missing number line.

There are two areas we would like you to help your child with this week, the first being correct number formation. Please use the formation sheets below to help you, especially focusing on the numbers 3, 5 and 8.

We would also like you to practise using a missing number line with your child. You can use the ones here, or have a go at making your own.

Week Commencing 22nd June
Counting backwards in steps of 1.

This week, we would like you to focus on counting backwards (and forwards if needed) in steps of 1. Start counting backwards in steps of 10 and then extend to 20. Here are some practical ideas to help.


  • Make a model rocket from Lego or junk modelling. Practise counting backwards and prepare for your rocket to blast off!
  • Collect some of your toys and place them in a line. Count them on and back in steps of 1.
  • Try starting at different points in the number line, not always from10 or 20.
  • Write numbers 1 to 10 or 1 to 20 on paper. Place them in order by counting backwards.
  • Working with an adult, take turns to count backwards. The grown up says a number and the child says the number that comes next. Keep repeating until you get to 0.

Positional Language


Positional language refers to the place where something or someone is, often in relation to other things, such as over, under, inside, outside, in front of or behind. A fun game to share with your child would be ‘Hunt the toy,’ and can be played at home or outside.


  • Find a small teddy or other toy.
  • Hide the toy somewhere in your house. Remember to ask your grown-up first if there are any places that you shouldn’t put the toy.
  • Let your grown-up ask you questions to try and find out where the teddy is hidden. “Is it behind the sofa?” 
  • When they have found the teddy, they can hide it and it is your turn to ask the questions.  



We hope you have fun playing this game and increase your child’s knowledge of positional language and its correct usage.
