Great Maths Bake Off

As part of maths homework this term the children have been using their mathematical skills to covert between imperial and metric measurements, and what better way to do this than while investigating cake recipes and baking? The children have really thrown themselves into this with great enthusiasm and the teachers are very impressed at the contributions. Several children have linked this with our topic of the Victorians by making Victoria sponge cakes. Some have even decorated them with a Victorian theme such as; making a Penny Farthing cake and a cake depicting the change in the landscape due to the industrial revolution drawing, using their knowledge from their lesson this term.
