Hi could anybody please send me the number rhymes that their school uses to teach children to write numbers. I think they are such a great idea and have Reception next year. Thanks so much from a grateful NQT

Around and round and round we go, when we get home we have a 0.

Start at the top and down we run, that's the way we make a 1.

Around and back on the railroad track, 2, 2, 2.

Around the tree and around the tree, that's the way we make a 3.

Down and over and down some more, that's the way we make a 4.

Down and around and a flag on high, that's the way we make a 5.

Around to a loop, number 6 rolls a hoop.

Across the sky and down from heaven, that's the way we make a 7.

Make an S and do not wait, when we get home we have an eight.

Make a loop and then a line, that's the way we make a 9.

0 - Around to my left to find my hero, back to the top, I've made a zero
1 - A downward stroke, My that's fun. Now I've made the number one.
2 - Half a heart says, "I love you." A line. Now I've made the number two.
3 - Around the tree, Around the tree, Now I've made the number three
4 - Down and across and down once more. Now I've made the number four
5 - The hat. The back. The belly. It's a five. Watch out, it might come alive
6 - Bend down low to pick up sticks. Now I've made the number six.
7 - Across the sky and down from heaven. Now I've made the number seven
8 - Make an "S" and close the gate. Now I've made the number eight.
9 - Make an oval and a line. Now I've made the number nine.
10 - One egg laid by a hen. Now I've made the number ten.

Number 1 is like a stick,
One straight line that is very quick.

For number 2, go right around,
Then make a line across the ground.

Go right around, what will it be?
Go round again to make a 3.

Down and over, and down some more.
That?s the way to make a 4.

Go down and around, then you stop,
Finish the 5 with a line on top.

Make a curve, then make a loop,
There are no tricks to make a 6.

Across the sky and down from heaven,
That?s the way to make a 7.

Make a ?S? and then don?t wait,
Go up again to make an 8.

Make a loop and then a line,
That?s the way to make a 9.

Make a 1 and then an 0 ?
10 are all your fingers, you know
