Last week in Mrs Northcott’s Maths set, the Purple group were working on working out percentages of a quantity.
We used money to help us understand.
First, we used our dividing skills to calculate the percentage of a quantity.
Then we took it a step further- we asked ourselves “How much does it cost now?”
We used take away sums to find the answer.
We decided to put this into a real life context by making adverts for an imaginary shop. These imaginary shops were all having sales! We incorporated our ICT skills to display our learning.
Take a look at some of our really great adverts! Do you think they are offering good deals?
