This week we will be learning about a concept called doubling.

Do you know what doubling means?

Doubling means twice as many.

When we have an amount, it means we need that same amount again. 


Watch the numberblocks episode by clicking on the picture to find out.


So if I had 2 sweets, to do double this I would need 2 more.




2+2= 4

Double 2 is 4. 




If I had 4 apples, to double this I would need the same amount again. 4 more.





Double 4 is 8.


Watch the numberblocks episode below to find out more.



Can you help Dobby the Alien in the powerpoint below?






Today you will need a set of dominoes.

You can use some you already have at home, make your own or print the ones below. 


Can you find all the dominoes which are double?

Remember double means they have 2 sides which both have the same amount. 


Once you have found the doubles, can you write the number sentences and find out what the answer to the double is.






Doubles, doubles, I can add doubles, it's no trouble for me to add doubles.

Get some objects from around the house (sweets, stones, lego) or use your fingers. 

Get an adult give you an amount, can you double it using your objects/fingers?

Remember double means the same amount.


A ladybird is a very special minibeast.
