Where children shoot for the stars and shine


This week we are learning about numbers to 5


Here are some rhymes to help us form the numbers 1-5.


l - Go straight down and that is all.

2- Wing it round and then go right.

3- Wing it round then once more.

4- Down right and cut in half.

5- Down round, put on a hat. 


Here is a game to play to practice number bonds to 5


  • Find 5 things you can throw, eg. rolled up socks, scrunched up pieces of paper.
  • Find something to throw them into, a tray or a pan
  • Stand back and throw the objects into the pan. 
  • Count how many landed in and how many landed out. 
  • Write the numbers down - these are number bonds to 5.
