Counting to 5

Still image for this video

This half term we are consolidating counting to 5. Counting to 5 has lots of counting principles such as:


  • Counting in a sequence from 1 to 5- saying each number in the correct order
  • Counting 1 to 1 correspondence- being able to count the objects 1 by 1
  • Cardinality- understanding and saying the number of items they have without having to count them again
  • Matching the numeral to the correct quantity
  • Abstraction- being able to count without looking or touching- listening to 5 claps / listening to 5 items being dropped into a pan 
  • Partitioning and Combining numbers to make 5
  • Using a 5 frame to make different representations to 5
  • 1 more than / 1 less than
