Year 5 children had thought up their own snack bars, drawn up tally charts and asked classes which they liked the best, found and analysed results, drawn graphs and displayed their results in a poster and presented their finding to the class.
Year 3 have been learning about volume, capacity and weight in maths. We made some chocolate and banana milkshakes using our measuring and calculating skills.
We had to double, halve and choose between a selection of measuring jugs to make the right amount of milliliters for our milkshake.
Lots of fun was had using real life maths!
