100's squares to help you with your counting in 2's, 5's and 10's.

A few of you asked for the 100's squares to be put onto the blog again so here you are!! Try counting in 10's starting from different numbers and see if you can spot the pattern. Splat the numbers as you count in 2's and 5's and spot the patterns there too. Remember...practise practise practise!!!!!

It was great fun even though it was a bit chilly outside!! It's a great way to practise at home too!! Here we are practising our skills...
