Say a random number to 100 and ask your child to carry on counting from that number. Tell them if you want them to count forwards or backwards. Use the flip counter below if your child is struggling.
Practise counting on with the robot addition game below.
Open the length powerpoint then click enable editing, slideshow then from beginning.
If you have a tape measure or a ruler, show your child 100cm and tell them 100cm is the same as 1 metre. Let them measure a few household objects using cms. Remind your child to always line up zero at the edge of the object to get an accurate measurement. Which object is the longest/shortest? Ask your child do you think we would measure larger items (bus, playground etc) with centimetres or metres? Why do they think this?
