  • Point out numbers and letters in your house and in your local area. 
  • count at every opportunity - eg when walking up the stairs/counting out fruit in the shops.
  • Talk to your child about the world around them and encourage them to ask questions.
  • Ask your child what he / she has been doing in school.
