Basic Knowledge Folder and Maths

Your child has a basic knowledge number wallet.  Inside are number cards 0 - 10.


Your child needs to:

  • recognise the numbers in any order
  • order numbers
  • be able to say one more than
  • be able to say one less than
  • order numbers from different starting points (eg, 6, 7,8)


To help them recognise the numbers, there are spots they can count on the back of the card to correspond to the number.

When your child is confident working with numbers 0 -10, we will add new numbers to their wallet.


We have added number bonds to 5 to your child's number wallet.  They can use their fingers to help them learn by showing the first number on their fingers and counting how many are still folded.  For example, 3 + ? = 5, show 3 fingers, how many more to make five?


It is important that your child practises this basic knowledge daily.  Here are some ideas of games you can play at home to make it fun and engaging.



Your child is currently being allocated a username and password for Numbots which can be used to reinforce the number learning.  This will be stuck in their green reading record. The more they practice the more topics will appear!
