This week we were given some money (£20) and challenged to see if we could double it using our maths skills.
Eagles class decided to do a project to make fudge and cake which we would then sell to the parents of Eagles class children. We had to cost out how much of each ingredient we needed and then use our measuring and calculation skills to bake and package our produce. We made boxes from nets and decorated them using our brand designs. On Thursday we had a sale in the hall before school and ALL the stalls sold out before 9am!
We then had to do our accounts and work out our profit. We had a choice of whether to keep all the profit or whether we wanted to donate some to charity. As a class we decided to make a donation to 'Water Aid' as this linked with our 'Africa' topic.
As if this wasn't enough for one week, we then spent Thursday and Friday designing our own maths games! Each group had a maths criteria to follow but could otherwise use their own artistic design skills to create their game. We think you'll agree that we did an amazing job!
