Doubling and Halving

The Year One pupils have been finding out about doubling and halving.

We have found out that double means two equal groups added together.

The Reception pupils have also worked on this concept by finding two matching Numicon pieces (the same as…) and then counting how many altogether.

We have been exploring halves of a number using fruit, cubes, pencils and lots of other practical equipment. Halving means when the whole has been shared into two equal groups.
