In Maths This Term…
In Maths this term we have been doing a lot of practical work on time and money.
We have been virtual shopping and looking at how to safely shop online and work to a budget. We have priced up individual recipes and a weekly shop.
The older year groups have been looking at bus and train time tables and how to make sure that we arrive on time to arrangements that we have made. They have also looked at outings to places such as trampoline parks and theme parks; investigating opening times, the cost of entry and any food and souvenir purchases they may make whilst there.
We have had a lot of fun guessing how long a minute is and doing lots of fun timed exercises to get used to what 1 minute or 5 minutes actually feels like. Here are some of year 10 seeing how many plastic people they can move with tweezers in 1 minute!
