Number Line Relays

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers.
This has been our focus over the last few weeks. We have been learning about teen numbers and have enjoyed games of teen bingo, enjoyed singing maths songs and counting upto 50. This week we also did some number relays where we had to put numerals in order from 0-20. At the start most of us were starting at 0 and counting up to find where we should place the digit. After sharing some of the other ways (strategies) we could use, like knowing the number before or after or if it comes between, we did the relays again and we were much quicker.
