Parents Visit Year 5

This afternoon we had the pleasure of the company of the parents and grandparents of the Year 5 girls.The classrooms were full to overflowing and there was great excitement as the girls shared what they have been doing in class. Having proudly shown their work off it was time to knuckle down and get stuck into a Maths lesson.
The lesson centred around probability and of course involved smarties. Each girl was given a 50g box of smarties and we calculated what the probability of getting a given colour was. We then used Microsoft Excel to create pie charts and column graphs to clearly display the data.
It was a really fun afternoon and we really liked being able to eat the smarties before going home.
