Extraordinary Maths - The Race into Space
The Extraordinary World of Food is a feast of immersive learning, bringing to life maths, literacy, science and history activities via a fictional French street: La Rue des Gourmets! You can choose to go with the set menu, following the timetable we have provided, or plan the perfect day to suit your tastes, using the editable version.
Who is it for?
With differentiated versions of every activity, The Extraordinary World of Food is suitable for children from EYFS/P1 to Year 7/P7. Simply by searching for their year group, class teachers will be able to access the full range of resources available for their pupils.
What is included?
Whether you are looking to run your own whole-school WOW day, or just want to spend a couple days exploring the topic with one class or year group you will find everything you need here. Covering Maths, Literacy, Science and History, all of the resources have been designed in line with curriculum requirements. The opening assembly, including a video message from Ady – our intrepid explorer – is a great way to start the day. You might choose to follow that by taking part in a whole-school culinary conundrum, Who Robbed Recipe? Will your pupils be able to use a whole range of reading skills to unmask the culprit? Next, you could take a look at food through the ages, with our Food History Ambassadors activity. Or perhaps you’d prefer to test the children’s skills with numbers through The Maths of Monsieur Le Monde’s Shop, or explore food science with our colourful Six Facts sheets and accompanying activities. Whichever way you go, you certainly won’t be short of choice.
How does it work?
Once you have purchased the day, you and your colleagues will have access to the whole bank of Extraordinary World of Space resources to use how and when you please. Class teachers can choose to use the timetable we have provided or use the editable framework to design a bespoke day of activity. Of course, you don’t have to use the resources as part of a whole-school event. You may want to run a day for just one key stage, one year group, or even a single class – the beauty of this approach is that you decide!
