Ready… Steady… Bake!…In Year 4

Year 4 have been learning about measurements and revised units of lengths, weight and capacity. Cooking is a wonderful way to get children weighing and measuring practically and reading scales carefully. The children can experience metric/imperial measures in recipe books and practise scaling by multiplying or dividing to create, e.g. double or half the amount in the recipe. Another fun activity is making ‘mocktails’ with different-coloured squashes or juice – challenge your child to create a recipe that actually tastes good. This is what some of the Year 4 children have been trying at home and Rupert baked a banana bread using his maths skills. Thank you for the pictures Rupert! We hoped you and your family enjoyed your fantastic baking!
