The witches tea party:

The children were faced with the provocation of a tea party in the witches’ cottage. They had to share the food out evenly between all of the guests, slice the bread in half so everyone gets the same sized piece, measuring out the correct spoons of witches brew for each guest and setting enough places out for additional guests at the table.

The sweet shop:

As part of learning about Hansel and Gretel, we decided to make our own sweets out of play dough, using our mathematical language to describe the weight of them. We used our hands and balancing scales to state whether it was heavy or light, and why. "It has gone down, because that one is heavy and the other one is light."
