Within our math focus lesson today we used real life situations to explore how we can split food to represent halves and quarters. We did this with wholemeal Salada biscuits. The children had to first explore the whole, then split into even 2 halves, and then split again to make 4 quarters. The children then represented this in pictorial and written form in their math books. They then got to enjoy the biscuit.
