Resource of the Week: Counting on in tens

Here are four great maths worksheets for those children who are confident with counting in ones and are ready to move on to counting up in tens from a teen number and then any 2-digit number.

Resource of the Week: Writing numbers

These four worksheets concentrate on counting on 3, 4, 5 or 6 from a single digit. Your children will probably be confident enough to give some of the answers […]

Resource of the Week: Recognising 2-D shape

Don’t forget that we have some great pages which will help with recognising 2-D shapes. Your child should be able to recognise four basic shapes: circles, squares, rectangles and triangles.
