Smoothie Shack

Smoothie Shack


Last week Year 6 children undertook a challenge to create and advertise fruit cocktail drinks to sell to the rest of the school. The children had to work in teams to decide on a final recipe and then brand this with a catchy name that would encourage people to purchase their drink. 


Throughout the week the children used a range of skills including:

  • Scaling and ratio to work out how much to charge for their drink and to find out how much of each ingredient they needed to buy
  • Measuring their ingredients when making the drinks
  • Data collection to keep track of orders placed
  • Persuasive writing to advertise their drink on the letter that was sent out to children and parents

The week was a huge success, and the children raised £139! The Year 6 children voted, and it was decided that all money raised would be given to Mind, a mental health charity. 


A big thank you to everyone who came to the smoothie shack and helped to raise this money, but most importantly a big thank you to the Year 6 children for their dedication, hard work and effort that was put into making this project such a great success.
