Smartie maths

Today we used smarties to learn about  finding the percentage of an amount.  We first sorted our smarties according to colour. Then we wrote them as a fraction of 10. We then learnt to change this to a fraction out of 100. Thi was then easy to change to a percentage because % means ‘out of 100’.

Super Sneaky Sugar

Posted by Miss Mac | Posted in Home Learning, Maths | Posted on June 22, 2015

Yesterday in Maths we looked at the amount of sugar in some popular drinks. Some were known sugary drinks while others were advertised as being healthy for you.

We order the drinks first according to sugar per 100ml and the sugar amounts weren’t so bad …

but someone pointed out no-one ever just drinks 100ml so we looked at how much sugar was in 1 serving of each drink.

Check out our results.

Coke (64g), PowerAde (43.6g), Red Bull (27g), Ice Tea (29g), Juice (20.2g), Up and Go (19.3g)

Now we learnt from a previous lesson that it is recommended that children only have 2 teaspoons of sugar a day or 8g of sugar (1 teaspoon = 4grams). None of our drinks, even the ‘healthy’ apple juice or “Up and Go” came in below this amount. We looked at the why companies choose certain words for their containers like “no added sugar”, natural, health rating of 4.5/5. Hopefully when we go shopping next we will look out for these little tricks and check out the nutrition panel.

The last few days SKM have been reading analogue and digital time. We have also been practicing converting between 12hr and 24hr time. The final activity involved Tick Tock biscuits and representing all the different methods of recording time.
