Week 1 (14th September 2020)

Lesson 1 Pupils begin to explore the whole and part relationship in familiar contexts. It moves from an area model using a map, to a linear model using a journey and then to a quantity context. The stem sentence is ‘If ___ is the whole, then ___ is part of the whole’.

Lesson 2 Pupils continue to explore the whole and part relationship and generalise that a part is always smaller than the whole but that the whole can change. It is important that the children understand that there are many ways to define a whole and only when this is done is it possible to define a part.

Lesson 3 This lesson focuses on the concept of ‘equal’ and ‘unequal’ parts and aims to address some potential misconceptions related to this. The area model of representation is presented to children as a vehicle to master this.

Lesson 4 Pupils embed the concept of equal parts and unequal parts and move to seeing examples of this within a linear model with paper strips and then on a number line. This lesson finishes with the important part that if we know the size and total number of equal parts, we can replicate the whole

Lesson 5 Pupils continue to look at equal and unequal parts. Attention is drawn to the fact that equal-sized parts do not have to look the same.
