This week we will be looking at Bia – Ceacht 1-4. You can play these lessons for your child and they can learn the words, phrases and songs.



Number work and counting:    1-10

Create your own number line:


Move your marker game:

Use the number line attached and a counter/cube.

Give your child instructions to cover a given number,

“Put your counter on the number that comes just before/after”or on any number bigger/ smaller than….etc.



The Secret number game:

Write a number between 0-10 on a whiteboard or a piece of paper and give your child some clues for them to guess your number.

For example, “my number comes before

the number 5/after the number 3” Encourage the children to try and count silently in their head to work it out.

Some games:

Counting song:

Number Formation:

Continue to practice formation of numbers 1-5. Use lots of different materials crayons, markers, chalk etc. to do this.


Practice counting forwards and backwards to 10. Clap and Tap: the children clap as they count forwards and tap their knees as they count backwards. Can they count forwards/backwards from a given number? For example, clap forwards from 5/ tap backwards from 3 etc.





Continue practicing adding numbers within five, using lego blocks, toys etc to help the children visualize it. Encourage your child to write this down as a sum. Collect 5 objects from around the house. What kind of material are the objects made from? How could we sort these objects into 2 smaller sets? How many objects in each set? Are there still 5 objects altogether? What does this tell us about the number 5? Is there another way we can make the number 5? Can you show me with these objects?


Our Favourite Sea creatures Look at the survey on Seesaw and decide which sea creature is your favourite? Why is this sea creature your favourite? Complete the survey to collect data and find out which is the most/least popular sea creature in your house. How many people picked crabs as their favourite? How many people picked sharks as their favourite?







Look at the materials powerpoint attached.

In our story this week, ‘The Rainbow Fish’ had some shiny scales

Can you think of any else that is shiny?

Have a look around the house and garden and see if you can find any shiny objects.

What materials are they made from?
