“Giving every child every chance, every day.”


Friday Fun challenge:

Activity 1:

Cut pieces of paper into different shapes or food that can be sliced, then work together to find half by cutting or drawing on the shapes or by slicing the food. Make sure both sides are equal and if they aren't, talk about why it is not half. Repeat for finding a quarter.

Activity 2:

Get a chocolate bar and talk about how it could be split into half, quarters and thirds. You could investigate whether the size of the chocolate bar affects how much they get. Does ½ always look the same?

Activity 3:

Select an even number of some of your toys (e.g. toy cars, marbles). Work together to split the total amount in half by sharing out into 2 piles. Repeat this to find a quarter but share the amount into four piles.
