Mrs Muddle's Cake Problem

Just before half term, Elm Class had a 'special visitor' from a local bakery(!); Mrs Muddle had got her cakes in a muddle and asked Elm Class to use their mathematical skills to help her solve the problem!

We worked as class to begin sorting the pieces of cake so that they had the correct amount of currants on. Then the children went off to work in groups of three to finish solving the problem.
