Today we started our new maths topic (Decimals, Fractions and Percentages) by making jewellery. We each cut up a whole straw (worth one) into ten equal pieces (worth a tenth) and made this into a tenths necklace. Then we took a tenth piece of straw and cut this up into ten equal pieces (worth a hundredth). These were much smaller than the tenths so we made these into bracelets. We then had the very fiddly job of cutting a hundredth piece into ten equal pieces (worth thousandths) to make earrings. We were shocked at how tiny the thousandths were (and could only imagine the size of ten thousandths!). You can see our handiwork in the pictures below.
