This week in maths we have been looking at problem solving. We used the book ‘The Door Bell Rang.’ We had a plate of 12 real cookies and everyday new children kept appearing at the door to eat them! We had to work out how we could share them equally. We had lots of different ideas about how to solve the problem.
‘We have to put three onto each plate’ said Zakaria when 4 children arrived.
‘Keep putting one on each plate until they are all gone’ said Fateha when 6 children arrived
We learnt some new vocabulary for example divide, share and equal.
We have loved using a book to help us to solve problems.
