Problem Solving with Dominos Pizza

Our Reception class children have been having fun learning about problem solving.  Mrs Graham gave the class two problems to solve: 

  • How would they make a pizza?
  • How would they share one pizza between two children?

Children had fun role-playing pizza preparation and used cardboard and glue to make pretend pizzas.  They then cut these into pieces to work out how to share between two children.

There was then a fabulous surprize for the children when Dominos delivered three specially made pizzas for the class.  Mrs Graham and the children counted how many slices each pizza box contained and worked out how many children each box would feed.

We would like to thank Nina at Dominos and the Wokingham Dominos staff for kindly supplying the pizzas free of charge, enabling our children to have a fun and exciting afternoon of problem solving and delicious pizza eating.Pizza Problem solving May 2019 10
