Do you want to make numeracy easy and fun?
Do you want a way for your children to understand not only the concept of numbers, but how to form them correctly?
Do you want a cross-curricular scheme that can be used across all areas of learning?
Ten Town transforms the confusing squiggles children see on a page into meaningful number shapes using unique stories, rhymes, animated characters and interactive games.
Memorable characters such as King One, Fiona Five and Sir Seven are designed to help children to improve their number recognition and formation, while reducing that common (and very frustrating) problem faced by so many early years practitioners - number reversal!
Ten Town has the potential for exciting and meaningful cross curricular learning and development across of all the key areas of the revised EYFS framework but focused through a mathematical base. Whether it’s exploring the world around us with Freddie Four, finding out about the past with King One, or stimulating discussion about fitness and healthy eating with Fiona Five – Ten Town offers the early years practitioner a wealth of resources.
But don't just take our word for it! Why not watch this video of two early years teachers talking about their experiences of Ten Town. You can also read a number of other written testimonials as well.

The importance of early years maths was highlighted in a recent report by the Institute of Education. The study, funded by the DofE, found that quality of pre-school maths was still having an influence on the results of pupils up to the age of 14!*

Ten Town has expanded!
The new online content is designed specifically for Reception year maths. As well as introducing the numbers up to 20, it covers topics such as size, weight, time, money, shapes, patterns, capacity, positional language, sinple calculations and much more!
The content is based around Tia Ten, a famous Chinese TV chef. She invites King One, Tommy Two and their friends onto her television show to help them prepare food for a wonderful banquet.
Each episode of Tia's television show is an interactive story in which the children have to complete challenges to move onto the next part of the story.
There are also a range of support materials to accompany the online content including over 50 practical activities as well as a range of physical resources including our new "10 to 20" flash cards and wall frieze.
The new content is also iPad compatible.
