We are exploring length, height and time and investigating numbers 9 and 10, finding number in our environment, representing them in different ways, finding ways of making each number and looking at patterns. In maths, we will use the number line and sing nursery rhymes to learn 1 more and 1 less, understanding that zero is part of that sequence when there is nothing left etc.
