Number of the Week
Can you count to number 7?
How many ways can you find to show your grown-up 7 fingers?- you will need to use both hands this time!!
Can you spot number 7's when you are outdoors on a walk?
Can you put 7 toys in a line?
Check carefully that you have 7 by touching them one at a time and saying a number name in order for each one.
Does it matter which end of the line you start to count? Are there still 7 toys?
Now take some toys away from the line- how many have you got now?
