The majority of children I have taught in reception classes have little or no number recognition when they start school. So don't panic!!

Its 5 years since I taught in England, but certainly as I left the numeracy programme for the first term of reception concentrated mainly on counting skills rather than number recognition which is much less important.

Don't know if "numbertime" is still on TV but thats a very good programme as it concentrates on one number at a time.

Good luck!

wouldn't worry then. This was something parents were asked to work on at the first parents evening. My ds was the same but they do pick it up at school. Am sure most children in her class will be the same.
