Planning on a budget

Select one of the numeracy tasks below. 


A cinema trip OR challenge yourself and plan a summer break to Chessington

Budgeting for a trip to the cinema


Plan a trip for you and your family members. You either have a budget of £35 or a budget of £100 you can choose depending on how many people you are planning for.


Remember you must pay the bus fare, you must get tickets, treats are options so it's what you can afford. BUT you CANNOT spend a penny over your budget.


Good luck and remember to calculate carefully showing your written methods.


Planning something on a budget is part of everyday life and can be really quite a difficult task.
