### Planning and Activities

**Day 1**Use ‘clever counting’ to count fingers and thumbs in tens, then shoes in twos. Start a sequence; children say the next three numbers.

**Group Activities:**

Y1 -- Count socks in twos; then money amounts using 10p coins. Or, count in tens and twos to find the total of 2p and 10p coins.

Y2 -- Count in twos, fives and tens; find missing numbers in the sequence. Some children count in threes and fours; find missing numbers in the sequence.

**Day 2**

Use ‘clever counting’ to count fingers and thumbs on children’s hands. Count in fives on the 100-square. Generalise about this pattern of numbers.**Further Teaching with Y2**

Use facts or counting in fives to solve multiplications with missing numbers (divisions) and word problems.

**Group Activities: T with Y2**

Y1 -- Use clever counting in fives to count cubes in towers of five, or to find the total of 5p coins.

Y2 -- Test answers in missing number sentences and discuss word problems.
