This week in Year 1, we have been learning about money. It is important to learn about money so that we know how to pay for things when we go shopping. First we learnt what all the different coins and notes were. We played pairs to try and match the coins and their amounts. It was great fun!
Later in the week, we had a trickier challenge! We had to make an amount of money using only 1p, 2p and 5p coins. To help us we drew dots under the coins to show its amount.
We we then had to show it in a different way. Sometimes we had to experiment with the different coins until we found a way that worked. It was a bit like buying something from a shop and handing over the coins needed.
We we really enjoyed learning about Money and our teachers are really proud of how well we have done this week!
