Early Number Fun development programme - workshop four

Focus for the session:

In this session we will build on various activities and resources given in the previous session. In particular, we will recap working with the umbrella story-book to emphasise learner development of:

  • numeral recognition
  • comparative language development and key word recognition (e.g. more less)
  • pattern recognition
  • bonds to five
  • one more, one less concepts

We will also work with a range of simple card games that further support these concepts but also support the development of the executive functions of working memory, inhibition (cognitive control) and flexibility
