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!

Materials!

We have been investigating materials in science this week with Mr Clarke!

What a fantastic time we all had! We were so proud of all the children, they behaved impeccably and many of them pushed their boundaries.

 

I wonder if you can spot who is on the monkey climb?
