Today you will be making equal groups.



Children begin by using stories which link to pictures and concrete manipulatives to explore making equal groups and write statements such as ‘there are ___ groups of ___.’

They will recognise and explain how they know when they are equal or not.

Children see equal groups that are arranged differently so they understand that the groups look different but can still be equal in number. At this stage children do not explore multiplication formally.
