Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. If __ is the whole then __ is part of the whole.
  2. You know what the whole is and can identify a part of the whole.
  3. The whole can be different in different situations.

Common misconception

Pupils might think that large objects or things such as England cannot be a part of a whole due to its size.

Encourage pupils to work with parts and wholes that they can handle and experience but where parts are large, such as their school or class environment.

Keywords

  • Whole - The whole is all the parts or everything, the total amount.

  • Part - A part is some of the whole.

There are stem sentences within the lesson so encourage choral practice. Some of the contexts (maps of Europe or the UK) may not be relevant in your context so choose something different to engage the children you teach.
