Year 6 students Raise money for new play equipment

0

Over the past term, nine, enthusiastic, year 6 mathematicians took on the challenge to raise money to buy new play equipment. As part of their maths lessons they had to investigate, plan and put into practice an entrepreneurial idea of their own creation, in an effort to make the greatest profit possible.

Each pair of students had their own unique ideas, but with most picking an edible product after research, a Christmas bake sale was chosen as the best way to raise money. With ideas ranging from gingerbread men to reindeer food each pair began to put together their plan of action. To meet their aims of “making the greatest profit possible” the talented pupils used all of their mathematical knowledge to; adapt recipes, research profit margins and create timetables to ensure the process ran as smoothly as possible.

Baking the goods

With their plans finalised the nine mathematicians became “bakers” for a spectacular day of cooking, baking and decorating. With an amazing attention to detail their products came out looking better than ever could have been predicted and were now ready for sale to hungry parents, teachers and students.

Selling the goods

Selling almost all their products and finally taking a breather after a half term of hard work, all nine students eagerly awaited to see the total raised of over £100, with total profit of just under £90. Elenah, Maisie, Kieran, Alice, Maggie, Jade, Freya, Nicholas and Ben can be very proud of what they have done and with the money raised all the play equipment pictured below was purchased.
