Autumn 2 Week 4

Over the last two weeks, the Badgers and Foxes have been learning all about doubling and halving. We have been practising using the important maths words 'whole' and 'part' of a number and have been testing out how to make and show 'equal' parts. We can explain why it is important that the two parts are the same and we have been practising showing doubled numbers and half of numbers in lots of different ways. We have shown each using counters or counting objects, playdough, maths drawings, number sentences, whole part models and bar models! We have even learnt the 'shared between' and 'groups of' maths symbols to help us write number sentences!
