Cooking in Maths

Mrs. Atkinson’s Maths group decided to make Christmas cakes to help them further understand and consolidate measuring as well as how to convert different units of measure. Children adapted a recipe to make a smaller cake then calculated the ingredients that were required. Over the last couple of days lots of practical measuring has taken place and the need to measure accurately has been reinforced through comparisons! Children have all had great fun making the cakes, where they made the traditional Christmas wish then decorated them with marzipan and royal icing. We hope families enjoy sampling them when they arrive home next week!
