Today I would like your child to have a go at making a GIANT number track that is big enough for them to jump on to find '1 less than'.


They could use piece of paper joined together or even chalk on the ground outside - whatever you have at home.


Take a look at the challenge card below...


Can your child choose a number on the number line?

Can your child find 1 more than that number?

Can your child find 1 less than that number?


Can your child explain how you knew which was 1 less than your chosen number?

Why do we only jump one number at a time?

How did you know when to stop the jumps and hops?
