Food fit for a Queen
Jubilee Maths Competition resultsCongratulations to our winners of the Jubilee Maths Competition. Pupils entered their brilliant recipes which were full of mathematical data and fascinating facts.
- First prize went to Harry Knowles (Year 6) and his Jubilee Muffins, complete with costings and weight of ingredients, impressive profit margins if sold and mouth-watering pictures of the actual muffins!
- Second Prize went to Ella Byrne (Year 3) for her Jubilee Fruibilee, a stunning-looking cake decorated with a Jubilee flag of fruit and cream! Ella noted issues with the differing temperature of their Aga oven and also weighed her cake before and after cooking.
- Francesca Giannachi-Kaye (Year 5) was awarded third prize for her Queen Elizabeth’s Amatriciana, a tasty sounding Italian dish which the Queen enjoyed in Rome with the Italian Prime Minister. As well as the numerical facts, Francesca talked all about the background to this recipe including historical, geographical and personal links to the dish.
- Daniel Wilcock (Year 6) achieved the fourth prize for his excellent Jubilee Jewel Cocktail (right), which was a mouth-watering delight of crushed ice, cream, strawberries and lemonade. Daniel helpfully included measurements for making enough for eight or sixteen people.
Well done to all our participants.
