This week 5C have been focusing on percentages. We began the week by understanding what the term percentage means. Next the children built on the knowledge of percentages such as: 50%, 10% and 25% which lead them on to tackling more challenging percentages such as: 15%, 40% and 55%. The children enjoyed playing the game – would you rather? This involved solving percentage problems in order to make a choice, for example: would you rather have 50% of 20 sweets or 40% or 30 sweets?
Today the children were asked if they could find the exit to the maze. This involved solving incorrect questions in order to find the way out!
