In the Early Years we use Ten Town, a numeracy resource designed to improve number recognition and formation.
Each number has a character and a rhyme that explains how to form that number. This has really helped our children form their numbers correctly. Number formation is especially important in Reception because it is much harder for children to change how they form their numbers later on, if they have acquired an incorrect habit.
Clearly formed numbers are essential to progress in maths.
We are pleased to announce that if you are in Nursery or Reception you will be able to access this from home!
You will be emailed a username and log in to use on this site this week.

Locked numbers and activities:
Your child’s teacher is able to set which numbers and activities are accessible. If an activity or number is locked, this is because they have not made it available yet. Please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries about this.

If you forget your username or password, then please contact us at school via the year group email address or email@example.com. It is not possible for you to reset your child’s home access login.
