    I want to make a maths lesson on partitioning to help with addition more engaging. It will be with lower ability year 4's and i already have some interactive whiteboard resources, but would like something kinasthetic, any ideas?

  2. Hi,

    Do you have access to place value cards, Base 10 or Numicon? The latter 2 would make the amounts physical. Or even better, link it to money and use 10p and 1p coins - then partitioning will appear purposeful from the off, and can be easily adapted with 10p coins being exchanged for other amounts (20p or 50p) to show how numbers can be paritioned in different ways.
    Best of luck!
