In year 5 we have been learning about money. Not just how to calculate money but how it is used in real world examples. To celebrate the end of the topic , we created a shopping mall in our outdoor area. 5J designed the shops selling a range of items from toys to fruit and vegetables.
5S joined 5J as their customers. Both customer and shopkeeper needed to use prior taught skills to work out change and how much was needed to pay.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning with the children really excited and engaged to learn in a practical setting.
