The Queen’s Birthday Bumps!

Did you know that the Queen has two birthdays each year?

Her real birthday (the day she was born on) is the 21st April. Her second birthday (the official celebration) is on the second Saturday of June.

Why not celebrate with some maths fun by giving the Queen birthday bumps?

Don’t worry, you won’t be throwing the Queen in the air! Grab a coin, download our activity sheet and try a coin toss experiment.

You’ll be thinking about how likely it is that a coin will land heads side up by using your knowledge of probability to develop and evaluate predictions. You’ll also be recording results and collecting data.

Remember to please play safely. Coins are not toys and can be a choking hazard for young children.
