Mathematical Snack in Foundation 2

16th November 2017

We love mathematical snack in Foundation 2.  We get into our mini-beast groups and work together to share out our special snack.  We talk about making our snack fair so that everyone gets an equal amount.  Sometimes we have to count the same number for everyone in the group.  Sometimes it is tricky because there isn't enough for everyone in the group or our portions are all different sizes.  Perhaps your child can help you to share out the dinner or snacks at home for the whole family.  Can they make it fair for everyone?  Mathematical snack helps us to use our understanding of number, size and fractions in a real life situation and we get to eat our snacks at the end!
