In this new series, we will be using a different picture book each month to help you teach the Renewed Primary Framework creatively

You can get so much out of a good book. This is one of my favourite mathematical stories for young children. First and foremost, it is a fabulous story that is perfectly pitched for Key Stage 1 children. Secondly, the mathematical content is intrinsic to the story and not simply an add-on. Through this story you can cover several of the Primary Framework objectives for mathematics in Years 1 and 2.

The main focus of the activities is on problem solving using multiplication and division. However, estimating, rounding, doubling and fractions also occur, as does partitioning, addition and subtraction.
