Estimate Me.I had a pot of sweets (lips, hearts and mallow hearts) and their first task was to guess which sweet there was the most of, rank them in order and explain their reasoning.
Next they had to separate and count to check their findings.
Then weigh each type and see which group was the heaviest.
Record all their results
hen finally divide each pile of sweet by four.
DD4 and DD6 counted theirs into four piles, one at a time and DD8 realised she could use her four times table (yay success!) They had a couple of 'remainders' and decided to give them to me. They were allowed to eat the rest during the remaining lessons.
