Lets go shopping!

This week we've left school behind, taken a step into the future and entered the work force!  Funnily enough we've all ended up as shop owners, working hard to attract customers and sell our goods. It's been hard work of course, but we all earned some money!

We have been focussing on money during maths lately and learning about coins, their value, appearance and how we can use them.

Having a room full of 'shops' has certainly been handy.  Yesterday we created our own shops, selected some things we could sell, and priced all the items.  Today it was time to go shopping!  Armed with a hand full of money we could visit all the shops and spend up big!  The shop keepers were kept busy, counting out change, adding up totals and figuring out profits.

Peak hour at the shops!

Celebrating a productive days earning!
