Sorting and counting

Today I thought I would sort my sweets out and see what I had left.

first I sorted them by looking at the colours and put all the sweets which had the same colour wrappers together.

Then I decided to count them. This was tricky because they were all bunched together so I put them in lines and touched each one as I counted them.

When I counted them all I labelled them with the correct number symbol.

I thought about which group had the most, the least and the same number.

You could do this at home with anything you can find around the house or even on your walks.

I wonder if you can put some of the numbers in order? I know someone has been doing this with the numbers they found on their walk so have a go!
