We moved onto larger numbers with a difference of 2. We used real objects that were the same colour, shape and size. This makes it easier for children to process. Next we will progress onto pictures of objects that are all the same, then onto different real objects, then pictures of different objects. This means your child is being challenged with more and more complex cognitive processing.

Then ask your chid to qualify their answer: ask how do they know? It is tricky for children at this age to qualify their maths reasoning verbally. It is a difficult skill to learn. Don’t worry if your child is not yet able to do this. It will develop in time.
