Sometimes a colour repeats red, blue, red, blue or sometimes the size big, small, big, small or even the object apple, banana, apple, banana. Mrs Thornburrow has used some things from around her home to create patterns - can you say the pattern that's repeating in each photo?

Following on from your paper pack counting activity. Mrs McDonald challenges you to do some counting around your house! Take a look at what she's done...

Mrs McDonald has been counting objects from around her home. Can you count how many she has? Can you read the number to tell your grown up how many objects there are?

Oh no! Mrs McDonald ran out of sticky notes so she couldn't label how many objects she had! Can you count how many objects there are in each picture and write it down?

Now see if you can count objects from around your home! See how many pieces of fruit are in the fruit bowl, how many toys you have or how many books! You can count absolutely anything! Good luck!

Take a ChatterPix picture of a family member, pet, favourite toy - anything you like! Press the next button, draw a line on your objects mouth and record yourself telling us something interesting about your chosen item. Make sure you rehearse your sentence first. 

You can edit your ChatterPix by adding text and a filter. Look at Golden Bear's example below.
