There is also one for numbers. Further down the page there are lots of themed blank writing pages which you could use for practice throughout the year as appropriate.

Young children and their parents may already know the BoohBahs. This site has lots of fun activities for little computer-users and not a word of explanation - they have to work out what to do. "It's magic!" says the Vaultman.
CBeebies Home Page

Children's Mathematics Network
CMN is an international, non-profit-making organisation for teachers, practitioners, students, researchers and teacher educators working with children in the birth-8 year age range.
