Jamie P6 “I really like making money from our chutney!” Numeracy & Technologies

The class calculated the total revenue from the sale of orchard chutney, jams and christmas trinkets.  After expenses, which we paid back to Mrs Campbell,  we were happily left with a healthy profit

We will now decide as a class how to spend this money… early suggestions are giving to charity, equipment for the playground or a school trip! Thanks to everyone who supported our Christmas fair, we hope you enjoyed the fruits of P 6/7’s labor!

  1. We did this because our topic in class is Ancient Egyptians. Our task was to mummify an orange the same way as the Ancient Egyptians mummified the bodies of the dead. The experiment took place over 6 weeks in a dry warm environment where we observed the oranges that had been filled with with cloves, salt, bicarbonate soda and cinnamon. The results showed that the oranges became hard and had shrank with no moisture. The orange was also brown in colour.
