Click on the video below and practise recognising numerals to 20.
Today I am going to introduce halving. It is the opposite of doubling. We teach halving amounts through sharing. If I wanted to know what half of 8 is, I would share 8 sweets equally between 2 children. See the picture below for an example.

Open the power point below to see some more examples of halving.
Complete the activity below by drawing the bees in two groups to find half. You could write sentences in your exercise book like the one below.
Half of 8 is 4.
