Year 6 really enjoyed their trip to Cadbury World this week. They behaved brilliantly and were a credit to the school. The workshop on marketing and advertising really supported the work we are doing in school.

In science, the children have been plotting and analysing data on a line graph. They have also started to think about trends and patterns of results.

In maths, the children planned their trip to Cadbury with a budget of £3,000, using all 4 operations. They had to get 60 children and 6 staff to the venue using a success criteria.

The children have started to price up their advertising costs for their chocolate products, as well as finding out how much their ingredients cost to make it.


Next week they will be:

  • Writing their own radio adverts for their chocolate products.
  • Learning how to use the formal written method for short and long division in maths. 
  • Continuing with their advertisement and marketing plan.

 

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)
