Year 1 have been practicing their money skills through the theme ‘Maths in the shops’. We have been able to recognise coins, their value and which coins to use to pay for items. We had our very own vegetable shop which we were able to role-play being in the shop and buying food. We also linked this to Fairtrade and we were able to use our knowledge of money. We will help our family and friends at home when they next go shopping, telling them which coins they could use!
