Different ways of changing the five shape
Make your own Numberblocks Five using the same colours, with either unifix cubes, lego or bricks.
Check you have 5 in your tower.
Change the shape of number Five. 'How many bricks are in your tower? Have you added any extra bricks? Have you taken any bricks away? You still have number Five.'
Explore with your number Five different ways of changing the shape. Repeat the questions from above.
The children will soon realise that Five can be represented in different ways and shapes.
Draw your different Five Shapes. Send me a picture of your different Five shapes.

Hide and Seek
Look around your home and make collections of 5 objects eg. 1 teddy, 2 cars, 3 pens, 4 socks. If possible, take photos of the collections and print them off. If that's not possible then draw pictures of the different collections. Leave the pictures in different parts of your home. Play 'Hide and Seek' where children have to look for 2 pictures of quantities that together make 5.
Practise saying the sentence '1 teddy and 4 socks together make 5'.
Remember to hide the pictures in different places for someone else to find.
