Measuring in Maths for Summer Smoothies

Never a dull moment in Newton – last week we had to work out the quantity of ingredients to buy for the 2 year 4 classes.  We had to work out how much ingredients would be needed for 1 person, 3 people, the whole class and then we even scaled up to work out what would be need if we made smoothies for the whole school.  Finally, we used our recipe for 3 and had fun making our Summer Smoothies.  We put our measuring skills into practise: weighing, cutting, pouring, whizzing and then drinking our Summer Smoothies.  Yum!
