The Witches' Spell - Counting activity
A counting lesson that is part of a set designed for primary age children based very loosely on The Witches' Spell by William Shakespeare from Macbeth, this can be used inconjunction with the wider project or as a standalone session.

It requires children to count the contents of cauldron, and encourages the use of estimation, multiplication and a range of mathematical strategies. A variety of teaching methods are employed, so that the children have the opportunity to explore and learn in the ways that best suit them.

A simple to use lesson plan, complete with aims and success criteria relating to the National Curriculum and EYFS, it should be easy to pick up and teach with minimum hassle and organisation. A specially prepared presentation and worksheet are included here and are ready for use, but can be adapted easily for your own children. If you would like any further adaptions, please contact me, for more information.

I'd be grateful if you like my resources here to add review and rate them. Thanks!
