## Mathematics: EYFS Guess How Many Learning Activity - Animals

This learning activity enables children to develop the skills of estimating and subitising up to 10 objects. They are encouraged to guess how many images they can see, for example five cows. The adult should allow children to quickly see the image before hiding the card to prevent children from being able to count! Children shout out their guesses, or record on whiteboards, before the adult turns the card over to reveal the numeral. Children compare their estimate to the actual number of objects.

Development Matters Statement Links
3 and 4 year olds
(M-1) Develop fast recognition of up to 3 objects, without having to count them individually (‘subitising’).
(M-4) Know that the last number reached when counting a small set of objects tells you how many there are in total.
(M-6) Link numerals and amounts: for example, showing the right number of objects to match the numeral, up to 5.
Children in Reception
(M-22) Subitise.
(M-23) Link the number symbol (numeral) with its cardinal number value.
Early Learning Goal
