Today in maths, Goldsworthy class were beginning to learn about parts and wholes. We used fruit to learn about whole objects (where you can see all of it) and parts (where you can’t see all of it!). The apple that Ms Dickman hasn’t touched is the whole. The apple she’d eaten a bite out of was a part (the other part was in her tummy!).

Then we looked at pictures of apples and carrots and sorted them into ‘wholes and parts’.

At home, you could help us learn about parts and wholes by asking children to find an object that is whole (can you see it all?) and part of an object (something you can’t see all of!). You might find: whole pieces of fruit/half a piece of fruit, a pack of biscuits/one biscuits, one room/whole flat.
