Maths 11.00-12 Noon

Oral starter

Say a number up to 10 and see if your child can say what double the number is quickly. Practise this with all the numbers to 10 in a different order.


Explain that the opposite of double is half and to find half of something we have to share it between 2 equal groups. You can also tell your child that halving means dividing by 2 (you can show them the divide sign ÷ as we have taught this before in school).
