This week the children in Year 2 have been working on their addition and subtraction skills using money.
We had a class shop where you could pick items to purchase, add them up to calculate your total spend and then work out the change needed after paying with a larger amount. We then gave the children a limited amount of money and they had to calculate what they could afford. Some were rather perturbed to be turned away when realising they didn’t have enough money to pay for their chosen items!
The children enjoyed using the virtual shop on the white board and playing some bingo games too. Marvellous Magnificent Money!
