Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

Little Acorns- This week we are going to be doing more learning about more and less. Today we are going to be comparing how many using the words: 'more', 'less' and the 'same'.

Play 'Grab Hands' using the document below. You could use pasta pieces, counters or marbles.

 

First grab some of the objects in each hand. Open your hands and decide which hand has 'more', which hand has 'less' or if they have the 'same' amount.

 

Count each handful of objects carefully to check if you were right.

 

Remember:

 

  • you should count to a bigger number for the hand which has 'more'

  • you should count to a smaller number for the hand which has 'less'

  • you should count to the same number if both hands have the 'same'. 

Big Acorns- This week we are going to learn how to find half. We are going to start today by finding half of an object. Remember if you are finding half it must always be fair!

First watch the story 'Give Me Half' by following the link below. 

Give Me Half!

Next work through the powerpoint below which is all about finding half of different pieces of food. 

Now find half of different pieces of fruit e.g. biscuit, cake, banana and apple. Remember to make sure that it is fair and be safe when using the knife to cut the foods.
