Maths Enrichment Day with an Eco focus!

We worked in Mantle groups to come up with ideas for selling items on a stall at a Victorian Fayre, with a focus on eco-friendly products and an awareness of carbon footprints!  We tried to make sure that our products were locally sourced and that we used recycled materials where possible.  We had to try and make a profit!  We calculated the cost of rent, wages, materials and advertising amongst other things and then took these costs away from our total of items that would need to be sold to see whether we had made a profit or loss!

Maths Enrichment Day

 

Our Maths enrichment Day today had an Eco theme.  Our day started with a litter pick around the school grounds.

 

We then used HWB to record the data from the litter pick.

Our next activity involved us sorting recyclable materials is a variety of ways.

Drama for learning

 

We have created freeze-frames with titles as a stimulus for conversation before creating diary entries and background art, ready for the exhibit.

 

Drovers

 

Our mantle for this term is to be museum curators, making an exhibit about the drovers, who walked the local land hundreds of years ago to take animals to markets.

 

This is the checklist of items the children think they need for the exhibit:

Creation Collages

We looked at various pieces of artwork depicting the story of Creation.  Here are a few of our collages….

Mantle of the Expert

We were commissioned by Jack to create a map for his Grandma.  He wanted our map to use a key, be easy to follow and include key features.  Here are our maps.

Library Visit

We thoroughly enjoyed our walk to the library last week.  We listened carefully to Mrs Morris read us ‘Handa’s Surprise’ as part of our work on human rights.  After the story, we were treated to a drink and a snack in the Community Centre
