Today the children have been exploring the topic of money. We discussed what money is and why we need money. We then looked at all the different coins and what each number on the coin represents. For their activity the children had some coins and had to go shopping in our school shop! They had to count their money and make sure they could afford the items they wanted to buy. They used their maths skills to count and their reading skills to identify what the item was. We love using money in reception!
