The document lists ideas for counting aloud with your children as well as the progression between year group expectations from the National Curriculum (2014). It is recommended that children practise counting aloud every day, relating the counting to its concepts as well as then counting in a variety of contexts, to build agility. Ensure that there are times when the counting includes concrete models and images of items to promote conceptual understanding and contextual application. Standard font is quoted from the NC programmes of study; italic font shows additional ideas and advice. It will help with catch-up programmes as it will allow you to see anything that your children might have missed or forgotten.
