Life Skills Curriculum

We have been developing our 'Life Skill' curriculum - making explicit links to day to day jobs in some of our learning.

As part of our maths learning we have been using and applying our classroom skills to everyday maths. By using coins we have been able to pay for ingredients to make cakes. Once we got back to school we used our weighing skills to measure out ingredients. 

As well as maths skills the children were able to plan the recipe, write a shopping list and use road safety skills.
