Taking Stock

Running the tuck shop means taking stock of what items we have to sell and what needs reordered. Learners count items weekly and highlight. They organise into item type and count in multiples of 5. Jake started to estimate how many crisps or chocolate bars he thought were in a box then counted the actual amount.

He was always very close! Counting, estimating and understanding mathematical terminology are used in everyday life and the workplace. Putting these skills into practice helps learners value and understand essential functional skills qualifications.
