Falling Educational Standards?

I was walking down this street at the height of summer three years ago when I noticed these intriguing shadows on the pavement. There's a primary school on the right-hand side and the numbers had been placed on the fence to help the children to learn their numbers and how to count.
Passing by the school frequently since then I had noticed that exposure to the elements was taking its toll on the numbers more and more until they were eventually replaced as shown in the next photograph which I took a couple of months ago.
Are they now teaching the children to count only from one to five instead of from one to ten as previously taught?
