TILT: Find, Subitise and Represent 0 to 5

The children will be introduced to the concept of zero. They already have some practical understanding of ‘nothing there’, ‘none’ or ‘all gone’ and they will learn that the number name ‘zero’ and the numeral 0 can be used to represent this idea. The children will use their knowledge of zero to find an amount to five, including zero and explore numbers to five through games. Next, the children will continue to develop their subitising skills. They will learn the concept of subitising zero objects as well as the instant recognition of up to five objects.

 The children will then be supported to represent the numbers in many ways and in different   practical contexts in order to embed their understanding. They shall be encouraged to use   both counting and subitising skills as a way of checking their representations.
