Warm up: Show me game, number cards to 20 and ask children to show you card, 1 more than, 1 less than etc

Play this counting game;  

Main: Finding half/halving a group of objects to 10

What is half? Listen to this fun song to remind you.

Have a go at halving a group of objects to 10, in school we count the objects first and then split practically between 2 ‘one for you, one for me etc’ how many do we both have? is it fair? Why? Link to number bonds i.e 5+5=10 so half of 10 is 5. You might like to explore this activity where you ned to help the pirates share their treasure.
