Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. The formation of the numerals 6, 7, 8 and 9 can be done with one continuous motion without lifting your pencil.
  2. The formation of the numeral 10 requires you to lift your pencil as it has two digits.
  3. The numerals 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 all sit between the baseline and the ascender line.

Common misconception

Children often put a large gap between the two digits when forming the number 10.

When modelling, emphasise that these two digits are 'friends' and like to be close together but not touching.

Keywords

  • Continuous motion - the smooth and uninterrupted movement we make when writing, without lifting our writing tool from the paper

  • Numeral - a symbol or character used to represent a number

  • Digit - refers to a single number from 0 to 9, like the digits we use when counting or writing numbers

Place arrows on the children's pages to help them check if they are going anti-clockwise or clockwise when forming the numerals.
