A Very Busy Week A Story about Nurse Trixie Six. Enjoy reading this lively children's story about Nurse Trixie Six. Bonjour, my little ones. I'm Nurse Trixie Six and I am busy, busy, busy I look after all the people in Number Town. So many people are sick in Number Town this week. Come and count how many patients I see and look for the hidden number 6 on each page. This series of stories is aimed at pre-school children exploring numeracy in everyday situations. Following National Curriculum Key stage 1. Maths, Geography, Science, Language, Team work and Cooperation. Number Town is a unique, numeracy-based approach to mathematics for 3-6 year old children . Its information-rich Number Image concept transform plain black numbers into child-friendly pictogram characters, who live in an imaginary place called Number Town. By translating number facts into engaging stories, children are motivated to listen, to think, to remember and to learn. These stories explain counting, addition, subtraction, sequence, time, shapes, movement and simple multiplication quickly developing the building blocks of early years mathematics. Using number characters like Sally Seven the Sports Star or Policeman Ernie Eight and actions to teach numeracy is supported by scientific research. The Number Town approach is also in-line with research on memory techniques and the way we learn. (mnemonics) Each Number Town character has a recognisable personality living in a realistic environment where maths is used in every day life. By integrating maths into real life situations provides children with a motivating framework for learning speaking and listening. These simple stories about the Number Town characters and their lives, engage attention, develop listening & speaking skills and expand children's awareness of numeracy skills. Subjects such as geography and science and their close relationship with mathematics are explored. (c) Jane Hague 2010, ISBN 978-0-9806737-3-9 www.123numberfun.c
