Pupils listened to the story 'Cuthbert Sees Doubles' told live by Sally Lunt. The workshop focused on doubling numbers. it helped pupils to see that doubling a number is the same as adding the number to itself. Pupils played card and dice games to find doubles and also painted butterflies to print doubles using art activities.
