Buy (or make) some chocolate of various **3D shapes** (e.g. a block of Cadbury chocolate is a cuboid, a Toblerone is a triangular prism) and record the properties of these 3D shapes e.g. number of faces and vertices.

**Bake** a chocolate cake! And as you combine the ingredients think about **ratios**. Can you list ratios of your ingredients? Example: how many parts flour to sugar? The following link may help:

When you are cutting your cake try and cut it into equal proportions and think about **fractions**; as you and others eat the cake calculate what **percentage **of the cake has been eaten.

After you have created your menu from the English activity, decide on how much each item on your menu should **cost.** Take into consideration the cost of ingredients and that if you were running a restaurant what the overheads would be (rent, staff etc.) and of course that you still need to make a **profit**!

Visit a supermarket and take a look at the confectionery section. Paying attention to the price tags, search for the information that tells you how much you are paying per** 100g.** Write this down for 10 different chocolate products and then list the products in order of the best value for money to the most expensive (**ascending order**).

**Create a maths activity for younger children**. The aim of the activity is to assist them with their number bonds. The theme of the lesson is chocolate! (E.g. smarties/buttons could be the resources for the activity!)
