Thank you Bethany and friends for your special Tea Report. A great example of real life maths.

Cups of tea

Did you Know that every year the Sparkwell school teachers - Mrs Palmer, Miss Lovick, Miss Sparkes and Mrs Hyams - drink 2380 cups of tea a year?! Two teachers drinks 600 cups a year, another drinks 980 while the other drinks 200. Two of the teachers have sugar, one teaspoon. Over the year, they have 2.4kg, that's nearly three bags and 800g of sugar.The teacher who has 2.4kg of sugar has the equivalent of 27 sharing packs of Haribo Starmix whereas the other has 9. The teachers go through 30 packs of tea bags which costs them £63 per year.
