Numeracy Focus week 24-28 February 2014
All children will be taking part in practical numeracy activities based on ‘measures’ (mass, capacity and length) all based around the theme of cooking!
The week will start with two interactive cooking demonstration assemblies taken by Mrs ‘Heston’ Bathurst, showing measuring ingredients to make a Fruit Cake.
The children will then be designing and making different food products to sell at the end of the week.
For KS2 children there will also be a challenge to estimate the perimeter and area of the school hall and the sports hall.
For KS1 there will be an interactive display of containers and parcels outside Mrs Bathurst’s office for children to sort in order of size or capacity.
If you do any cooking with your children over the holidays please feel free to email any photos which could be added to measures display in the hall. Please send for the attention of Mrs Bathurst to email@example.com.
It promises to be an exciting week!
