Understanding the value that different numbers represent is a vital skill - and one that is all too often passed over when children first learn to count. The video below will give you some ideas for activities to develop Early Number Sense with your child to help prepare them for school. You can create your own set of cards and counters for free using our 'DIY Resource Kit' files or we have an 'Introduction Resource Kit' that can order below.

We also have a set of cards aimed at developing visual recognition of small quantities (known as subitising). You can read more about this important skill and how to use the cards in our Subitising Blog post.
Introduction Resource Kit:
Our Introduction Resource Kit contains all the equipment you need for the activities shown in the video: 20 red 'ones' counters, 20 yellow 'tens' counters, 1 pack of digit cards, 3 tens frames, Stack Checker, 2 ten-sided dice and small counters to play the games all stored in a durable A5 tuff bag. Kits cost £10 (+£3 P&P to UK Mainland only) and can be ordered using the payment button below.
In the interest of security, all payments are processed securely through Paypal (although a Paypal account is not required) so we never see or store your payment details.

Schools: If you would like to purchase multiple Resource Kits (perhaps for your new EYFS starters) please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange payment via invoice.
