Cooking Activity

This fortnight’s challenge involves cooking! You could bake a cake, make some biscuits or follow a recipe to help make dinner for the family. You will be practising your maths skills through measuring weight and volume. You may want to practice your doubling skills by making a larger batch than the recipe states. Write out your recipe and take photos of you measuring out the ingredients as well as the finished food. Please don't bring food in, a picture poster and recipe will be fab for the display board.

Alternatively, if any of you are planning on visiting London in half term and are going to Kings Cross, you could complete the family maths trail attached and discover the maths around the area.

Fortnightly maths challenge 1. - due in 19.12.2019


Starting this week we are introducing a Marvellous Maths challenge for the children to do at home. Please encourage your child to try it. We want to promote a love of maths inside and out of school. This fortnight's challenge is 'Maths of Me'. A bigger challenge would be for the children to design their own, include all the family and make comparisons e.g. finding the difference between the height of different members of the family. This challenge is due in on Thursday 19th December. I would like to display excellent examples in school and there with be a prize for the best effort. Good luck!
