Here are some 'sweet' suggestions...


  • Gather data from friends from family to find out which candy is the most popular. You couod present your findings in a line graph, a bar chart or even a pie chart.
  • Design your own 'Ultimate Candy'. Consider the ingredients, the price etc. Maybe you could plan and deliver a short  television advertisement or create a poster? Remember to use lots of descriptive language and persuastion. Look at the clips below for inspiration!

Design and Technology/ Maths Task


You will need cocktail sticks and small jelly sweets  (Midget Gems are particularly good for this task!). Look at the images below to give you an idea of how to join the sweets and sticks to create shapes and structures.

Make a table to record the names, number of faces, edges and vertices (corners).


  • Challenge: Can you build any structures or buildings?


  • Super Challenge: Can you recreate any famous landmarks?
