            • Counting

              • KS1.Ma2.2.a – Count reliably up to 20 objects at first and recognise that if the objects are rearranged the number stays the same; be familiar with the numbers 11 to 20; gradually extend counting to 100 and beyond

Australia – Australian Curriculum expand/collapse

  • Foundation Year
    • Number and Algebra
      • Number and place value

        • ACMNA002 – Connect number names, numerals and quantities, including zero, initially up to 10 and then beyond

        • ACMNA003 – Subitise small collections of objects
