Declan has been busy grouping soldiers into armies and then adding the groups together to find out the answers to times tables questions. Mr Arnett was very pleased with your Maths skills during this task and shared your success with me straight away.
Reuben used his Maths skills to bake some rolls a few weekends ago. He had to take the original quantities in the ingredient list and double them because of the number of people in his family. Reuben carefully measured the ingredients out, which were mainly measured in grams and ounces.
The rolls looked delicious – please do ask Reuben about these if you would like to take on this challenge yourself!
