12 Days of Christmaths

This morning I gave my y4 maths set the song words of the 12 Days of Christmas and the following information…

Partridge – £2
Pear Tree – £3
Turtle Dove – £4
French Hen – £5
Calling Bird – £4
Gold Ring – £10
Goose – £6
Swan – £8
Maid – £9
Lady – £15
Lord – £20
Piper – £9
Drummer – £11

They were challenged to then find out how much it cost to buy all the gifts.

    1. Some better than others, but most had a really good go at it. Took them a while to realise that they didnt have to keep adding all the separate bits together – i.e. once they had worked out day 2 they knew most of the answer for day 3 and so on.
