Doubling and Halving
(Live Zoom Session)
See questions on the attached sheet. You do not need to print the sheet.
For each number, you need to double that number and you need to halve it.
Remember, when you double a number you add the same number to it.
e.g. double 6 is the same as 6 + 6.
The answer is 12!
When you half a number, you need to share the amount into two equal groups.
To do this, we draw two plates, and share one at a time until we reach the number we are sharing.
You can use objects such as Lego, pasta or counters to help you with this.
Draw a picture of what the weather looks like today. Describe what it is like.
If you have a thermometer/weathervane/rain gauge, you could talk in more detail about the weather and record any findings.
Write about what activities you might like to do in this sort of weather and why.
e.g. if the weather is rainy and cloudy, you could write...
I would stay inside and make my own obstacle course so I could stay dry but also get some exercise.

Can you move to the music, pretending to be prowling like a cool alley cat?
