2N has been working on Division in Mathematics. We read the book ‘The Doorbell Rang’ by Pat Hutchins. It is about a Ma baking 12 cookies and sharing them out between her 2 children. It then becomes more complicated as visitors start arriving unexpectedly at their door, and then the cookies need to be shared out evenly again. It led to some great discuss and lots of fantastic role-playing using cookies.
The students loved sharing out the ‘real’ cookies at the end and eating them!!
