I want to bake a Christmas cake.

According to the recipe, Christmas cake takes 2 hours and 10 minutes to bake plus 25 minutes to prepare. 

How long will it take me altogether?

I have 30 children in my class.  I am thinking of making star decorations out of lollipop sticks.  How many lollipop sticks will I need for every child in my class to make a star decoration like this one?

Biscuits come in packets of 12.  There are 29 children in my class. 

If I buy 6 packets of biscuits to share with my class for our Christmas party, how many biscuits will each child get? 

How many are left over?

To decorate our Christmas tree, we’ll need lots of decorations!

We will need 3 metres of tinsel, 12 purple baubles, 12 silver baubles and 1 star.

Tinsel costs £1 per metre, baubles cost £3 for a pack of 6 and a star costs £5. 

How much will it cost to decorate our tree?
