Year 1 Halves and quarters in context

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by angiepangie, Jul 3, 2011.

  1. Hello
    I'm an NQT ( 3 weeks to go) and have my final observation next week. LI : To find haves and quarters of a group of objects. As a starter I was going to give the children half a picture in an envelope and they have to find their partner with the other half. (pictures of ben 10 spongebob etc)

    Main teaching - undecided but thought initially about sharing pizza toppings on pizza bases and TA would take HA outside to half and quarter bigger numbers of objects - wellies, dinosuars etc..

    Now not sure on the pizza topping activtiy as think may be too confusing for lower and middle abilities. Would rather look at objects such as fruit or smarties.

    Any suggestions or advise from anyone would be appreciated :)

    (It has been a long hard year)
