The true value of learning.

Money, money, money!

This week we have combined our learning of place value with our learning about money. We have explored how, for example, the 4 has a greater value than the 2 when making 42p using coins. We began making totals by selecting the right number of 10p coins and 1p coins and then challenged ourselves to exchange 10p coins for 20p coins. We were surprised how much easier it was to make totals when we used this prior learning. Now we need to practise this learning when shopping with our mums and dads!
