A nice, easy introduction to our Superbrain section with these worksheets on counting on 3, 4, 5 or 6 from a single digit. By now your children will probably be confident enough to give some of the answers without counting on. This means that they are beginning to learn the answers to 'number bonds' such as 5 + 3 is 8.
Four tricky pages on estimating where whole numbers lie on a blank number line.
Counting back is the preliminary stage before subtracting 'in your head'. These worksheets ask your child to count back from numbers up to 20. At first they will probably use fingers or other maths material to count back, but as they gain confidence they will begin to use other mental methods and begin to know the answers ' off by heart'.
Maths is all to do with pattern. Here we have patterns made on a number square when counting on in threes, fours and fives.

Here are four great maths worksheets for those children who are confident with counting in ones and are ready to move on to counting up in tens from any 2-digit number. Whilst the pages concentrate on the same skill, they are all very different. Don't be surprised if your child uses fingers to help them with this. For example, counting on 3 tens from 21, many children will start at 21, hold one finger up for 31, 2 for 41 etc.
Work out the number patterns and fill in the missing numbers.
Here we have a tricky set of maths worksheets on counting back in tens, starting from any 2-digit number. An important thing to point out to children is that the units will remain the same as the number gets ten less. This is good practice at understanding place value, so important later on.
Practise counting back, crossing the tens boundary.
An abacus is an excellent resource for helping your child understand 2-digit numbers up to 99. It shows clearly the two columns, the units and the tens. In other words the 2 yellow balls in the tens column have a value of 20 whilst the two balls in the units column have a value of 2. This will also help later when multiplying by 10 as they can see each digit moving one place to the left.
