Good morning lovely Year 1's. Wasn't it very warm yesterday? A day for paddling pools! I hope you enjoyed some time in the sun and are feeling bright this morning. 


Our literacy learning is on our 'Everybody Week 7' page; just follow the link below to get there! Your maths learning is just below that...



Our Maths Learning Today


Today, we will use our knowledge of halves to solve problems from pictures. If you find it more helpful to use actual objects to share them into two groups or halves, then please do. smiley

We will be exploring questions such as;
How many altogether?

How many equal parts are we splitting it into to find a half?
Does this quantity represent half?
How can we check our answer.

A half of __ = __.

___ is a half of ___.


Please start on Lesson 4 for your learning today from the power point below...

Galileo Year 1's you will have a choice of the one or two star chilli challenge worksheets in the new maths packs made available last week. Drake year 1's we will produce a new pack for you straight after half term. 

The worksheets are below for printing, or you can draw the objects in your green books and write the total of objects and then what is a half of that next to your picture.
