It is quite normal for children to find naming some numbers confusing when they are first learning them, but that does not mean they are bad at maths.

Children will see and hear numbers in a wide variety of situations (not just school). We can help them learn number names by pointing them out and talking about them.

Once we start looking for numbers, suddenly they are everywhere!

Quick Tip! Remember, children wont be able to recognise every number. You can help by, pointing them out, talking about numbers (little but often) and going on number hunts with your child.
