Teamwork - Respect - Aim High

Summer 1 week 5 18.5.20 - 22.5.20

We would like you to learn a little bit more about money. We know you all have seen different types of money and had a couple of coins in your purses before.


We use money to pay for things; it means we swap money for things we want and need!


Do you remember going to the fair and paying for attractions and snacks? Do you remember bringing a pound on a dress-up day at school?




Have a closer look at the smallest value (but not the smallest size!) coins 1p and 2p. Ask your grown-up to show you these.


Take a couple of those coins and think how much is that altogether? Not how many, but how much.


Ask your grown-up to support you in practising noticing the difference.
