Description Learners review a supermarket receipt in terms of food groups and types, and develop their numeracy skills through some simple calculations. Following research about recipes, learners create a menu for a ‘healthy meal’ and use it to work out the items and the quantities of each required. Learners research relevant prices and use their findings to draw conclusions about the healthiest and cheapest two course meal for six people. Their menu, and the reasoning behind choosing it, is communicated to the rest of the class through a poster or leaflet. All Rich Activities are available to buy in English and Welsh.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

A range of engaging and exciting rich activities for use in the classroom to improve learners’ literacy and numeracy skills, as in the LNF. These activities will be posted to school on a memory stick. These can then be printed in-school when needed.

The activities also aim to develop learners’ problem solving, critical and creative thinking skills. Each rich activity has Teacher’s notes, to show how it links with the curriculum and the LNF, instructions as to how to prepare for and carry out the activity, and a grid demonstrating which elements/aspects of the LNF could be assessed. Each rich activity covers several teaching hours and is broken up into a number of tasks, to be used with pairs or groups of learners, with focus questions to elicit understanding.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Learners review a supermarket receipt in terms of food groups and types, and develop their numeracy skills through some simple calculations. Following research about recipes, learners create a menu for a ‘healthy meal’ and use it to work out the items and the quantities of each required. Learners research relevant prices and use their findings to draw conclusions about the healthiest and cheapest two course meal for six people. Their menu, and the reasoning behind choosing it, is communicated to the rest of the class through a poster or leaflet.

LNF links: literacy and numeracy

Curriculum links: science and design & technology

How users/participants can evaluate success

The rich activities in themselves can be used to assess learners' current position and develop next steps for improvement. In addition, baseline test outcomes on Literacy and/or Numeracy can be compared with evidenced outcomes from the rich activity.  

Follow-up activities and support

Further rich activities are available to be used with learners from Foundation Phase to Key Stage 3. To view the full range of rich activities on offer visit www.thinklearnchallenge.com/pick-n-mix.html or contact [email protected] .
