Good Morning! Can you count:


  • from 1 to 20
  • from 4 to 14
  • from 7 to 12
  • from 13 to 20


Watch the YouTube video below and practice counting back from 20.

Counting Down From Twenty Song

The Counting Down From Twenty Song by Have Fun Teaching is a counting song that teaches kids how to count down from 20 to 1 by ones.

Please make sure you've got your exercise book and a pencil. 


First, we are going to practice writing numbers between 10 and 20. When your grown up says a  number, can you write it in your exercise book? Remember the pattern of these numbers and how they are all 2-digit numbers that begin with 1. Apart from 20 of course! If you get stuck, check the number line below to help you.


10    11    12    13    14    15    16    17    18    19    20

Grown ups, please ask your child to write the numbers out of sequence, so for example ask them to write 14 then 19 then 11 etc.


We are going to practice subtracting again today. Remember that when we subtract we take away, so our amount and number gets smaller. Look at the subtraction sentences on the grid below. Can you choose 5 to find the answers to, by drawing marks and crossing out like we did yesterday? Look below the grid to see how I worked one out, to remind you what to do.

Picture 1

I am going to work out the answer to:


9  -  4  =


I start by drawing 9 dots:


o    o    o    o    o    o    o    o    o   


Then I cross out 4 of them:


o    o    o    o    o    o    o    o    o   


Count how many are left and write my answer - 5


9  -  4  = 5


Now it's your turn!
