This week we are learning about halving and sharing. We will start today learning about halving shapes or objects.
Begin by watching and playing this powerpoint.
Then cut out these shapes and talk about each being 'half' of the whole picture. Can the children put the two halves together? Maybe they could stick them on a piece of paper or lay them together on the table. Other activities you could could do to support this learning is cutting play dough or plasticine in half, cut fruit in half at snack time, sandwiches etc at lunchtime. There are lots of practical opportunities to explore this concept throughout the day.
