The Pentagons have been learning how to find chance of something happening.
We had a box of skittles and had to work out what the chance was of choosing our best flavour.
Question: What skittles could be in the box if there is 1/3 of a chance you choose your favourite colour?
There was lots of problem solving.
Question: There is 1/4 of a chance to choose your favouite.
Here are some combinations of skittles.
We had a tricky problem. There were 32 skittles 1/4 of the bag is your favourite colour and there are 5 different coloured skittles.

We ended up by closing our eyes and choosing 2 skittles from the box.
Who got their favourite colour?
Thank you to Miss Hill and Mr G for supporting us with our learning.
