Tu b'shvat and Maths
As part of the Tu b’shvat celebrations, Alma children and staff were able to taste 15 different varieties of fruit which had been generously donated by the Alma parents. The number 15 is significant because Tu B’shvat takes place on the 15th day of the month of Shvat.
The next day, as part of their maths lesson, Year 3 asked each other and staff around the school which of the fruits were their favourite. They recorded the results in a tally chart. The children then used the tally chart to create their own bar charts.
