'It's numeracy at its most joyful and positive, and a brilliant way to get young minds excited about maths' Teach Early Years

I have this little sister Lola.
She is small and very funny.
Sometimes for a treat, Mum says, "We are going to the shops and you may choose one thing."
"One thing to share?" says Lola.
I say, "One thing for you and one thing for me, which means two actual things."
