Ten Green Bottles - sing the song and think about how many bottles are left each time
For today's lesson you will need number cards 1-11. You can print these from the document below or create your own by cutting up 11 pieces of paper with the numbers 1-11 written clearly, one number per piece of paper. You will also need 20 objects to count with, these could be coins, pasta, lego bricks or anything similar. You will need ten counters in one container, bowl or plate and 10 in another. Finally, you will need two tens frames - you can print these or draw your own.
Carry out the silver challenge by colouring the group that has fewer objects. Carry out the gold challenge by using two different colours to colour the balloons and talk about which group has more balloons and which group has fewer balloons.
