‘Would you rather?’ Percentages

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!
