Am I using more, fewer or the same quantity of eggs?

I’m going to make yet another omelette.

Is it going to be a larger or a smaller omelette?

Is it going to be the same size as the one I made yesterday?

How do you know?

Am I using more, fewer or the same quantity of eggs?

I’m going to use all these eggs.

How many will that be altogether?

How many eggs would I need to make another omelette?

I’ve eaten 2 segments of satsuma; I’ve taken some away.

Do the gaps make it easier to remember where you started counting how many segments are left?

How would you explain why this is?

You’ve been thinking about distance from the target for your game.

Now think about what works best for you to throw. Which works better here do you think; a dry teabag or a wet teabag?

We’ve been exploring the variety of shapes we can make with our dough.

See if you can work out how I made this shape.

How would you describe all the different shapes and surfaces you can see here?

I was wrapping up my dad’s birthday present. I laid his birthday blanket square on the paper so the edges of the blanket and the paper were side by side; parallel.

However, when I pulled the edges of the paper over the blanket to stick one over the other, there was a gap! I didn’t have enough paper!

How did I solve the problem? Why don’t you try wrapping something up and see if that helps you work out the answer?

There is so much going on here! Which numbers are you curious about?

Today I am most interested in how we organise numbers. 020…7729…0826.

Where have you seen numbers organised in this way before?

Why do you think they are spaced out in this way?

What would you do with your dough;

Squeeze it?

Squash it?

Stretch it?

Flatten it?

What else could you do?

Someone designed this bench. They thought long and hard about who was going to use it and how they were going to use it.

Have a think about the decisions they made and why they made them.

I keep on wondering about why the seat slopes downwards at the back.
