Counting Nursery Rhymes!
We have looked at lots of nursery rhymes that count up and down to ten, but why stop there!
Here is a nursery rhyme that counts all the way up to 20!
We have met all of the characters of Ten Town!
All we need to learn now is 0
This shows that there is nothing, zero, none.
Zero will help you to write the number ten – it’s King One and followed by a zero!
“Start at the top, nice and slow.
All the way round and there you go!”
I hope you have been practicing writing the numbers, don’t forget the rhymes to help you!
I wonder if you can complete my challenge?!
Can you write the numbers 1-10 on separate pieces of paper?
Don’t worry if you find it tricky – you can ask your grown-up to help you, or use the number cards from you Resource Pack/uploaded below.
Can you put them into the right order?
Can you count out the right number of things to match the number on the card?
Can you find what one more or less than a number is? (This is tricky, don’t worry if it’s a bit difficult)
Have fun playing with numbers, and (as always) don't forget to show us how you get on, on the Class Blog!
Nursery rhymes that count!
Can you think of one?
A lot of the nursery rhymes we have looked at count up, from 1-10, but there are lots that count down too! One we enjoy singing in Nursery is ‘Ten in the Bed’
We like singing along (and feeling sorry for the poor people who have rolled out of bed!)
We have looked at the characters of Ten Town, from 1-8. Today it’s time to meet Nina Nine – her story is linked on this page.
Can you use the rhyme to write the number 9?
Nina Nine is very good at building, and that made me think – can you find 9 things in in your house that you can build something with?
Can you make a tower with nine blocks or objects?
Be creative, and try to use things you might not normally think of for building!
As always – show us what you have been up to on the Class Blog!
Can you think of a nursery rhyme that counts?
One that Miss Bailey likes, is ‘Alice the Camel’, because it looks at lots of different animals and counts their different features.
I hope you have been enjoying learning about the characters in Ten Town so far, and have been practising how to write their numbers.
Today, I am going to introduce you to Eric Eight.
I have uploaded his story on this page for you.
Can you make the shape of Eric Eight with things in your house?
Maybe you have some playdough, and you can make the eight snowballs that create Eric’s body!
Have a go at writing the number 8 yourself, don't worry if you find it a bit tricky! Keep practising - 8 is a tricky number to write!

Can you think of a nursery rhyme that counts something?
One that we enjoy singing in Nursery is “10 Little Dinosaurs”
Click the image and see if you can sing along and count the different dinosaurs!
So far, we have looked at the Ten Town characters 1-6.
This week in Ten Town, we are going to meet Sir Seven.
This is a new character for us all, and I have added his story here for you!
Can you be like Sir Seven, and help to pick up 7 things in your house that need to be tidied away?
Can you practice writing the number 7, and all of the other numbers we have learnt so far?
Grown-ups; write the numbers 1-7 on post it notes or pieces of paper and mix them up.
Can your child put them into the right order?
Can you count out the right amount of objects to match each number?
Let us know how you get on, by uploading to the Class Blog!
Can you think of a nursery rhyme that includes counting?
One of Miss Bailey’s favourite nursery rhymes does! ‘The Ants Go Marching One by One!” Miss Bailey remembers marching around Nursery, and to the Dinner Hall, singing this song with you!
Last week, we remembered some of the people who live in Ten Town. I hope you have been practicing how to write their numbers!
Today, I’m going to remind you about Seal Six. We met him just before Nursery closed, but don’t worry if you have forgotten his story – I have added it on this page for you to have a look at!
Can you practice writing number 6?
Can you count out 6 things in your house?

We miss your smiley faces!
Can you think of a Nursery Rhyme that counts up the numbers?
When we are in Nursery, you usually choose "One, two, three, four, five - once I caught a fish alive!"
Can you sing it?
Here is a link to a video to help you!
Today, I am going to remind you about the characters of Ten Town!
It's their job to help us to recognise numbers, and learn to write them.
Have a look at the Ten Town stories, and practice writing the numbers 1-5!
