Confused about some questions my ds Y3 asked me yesterday. He asked how many points in a pair of scissors, in a door, in a pencil? Answer being the pencil has no points because it doesn't open... Something like that. I don't understand anything. What exactly is he on about and why is this numeracy? Cheers
