Sooty Sweep and Soo need to learn their numbers and quick - or they'll lose their job in Mr. Slaters Sift shop. Richard tries to help by teaching numbers 1-10 but as usual Sooty's magic mischief and mayhem don't make things easy! Sooty 123 builds on all of the fun and slapstick you would expect from Sooty while combining an engaging educational element to help develop early numeracy skills. Studies show that children respond well to educational programmes when they are presented in a fun way and feature their favourite characters. The script for the programme has been carefully developed to ensure it complies with current early years teaching methods and Richard, Sooty, Sweep and Soo ensure the fun factor is never less than a perfect 10!
