A key skill in mathematics for the Year 3/4 was to be able to count accurately and we were able to play with this idea by creating a scene between the King and Queen of number trying desperately to check that they had 20 pencils for their 20 secretaries to send out party invitations.

The most effective part of this scene was that we were able to then ask the class to be our ‘experts’ on counting accurately. One brave volunteer decided to show us exactly how to do it by counting the object as it was placed on the table to ensure accuracy. The children were then able to use this model of effective counting in future workshop sessions and refer back to what they had seen.
