Feed the Fleet Maths Challenge

On Wednesday 27th Jan we were invited to take a team of Yr4 children to the Mary Rose to take part in the Feed the Fleet Maths Challenge.  It was an excellent day and the children loved every second.  The teams had to pretend to have roles on the Mary Rose.  Our team were given a small budget and had to ensure they bought enough food to feed all of the men of the ship.  They had to work out how much they could afford to buy of each item available at the shop, buy it, then fit everything into the 'hold' of the ship while making sure everything was still easily accessible.  Later in the day they also had the opportunity to look around some parts of the museum.  The children were a credit to Ark Dickens.  Well done!
