Barvember 2021 is here!

Barvember is organised by White Rose Maths, a scheme we use in Upper School, to encourage pupils to use the bar model to assist in mathematical understanding and reasoning. Using this method, children can visualise and then solve maths problems.

Each day in November, new problems are revealed and in Upper School, we are attempting this challenge throughout this month. 

Here is an example from Day 1. Can you solve it?


A barrel holds 35 litres more than a bucket. 
Three buckets and one barrel hold 103 litres.
How many litres does a barrel hold?
