My Money Week 2.12.19

Money Week Activities


For the Pomphlett Bake Off, we helped weigh and measure our ingredients and made marshmallow mice to sell at the Christmas Fayre.  We talked about the cost of our ingredients and how much we should sell them for, before agreeing on fifty pence a mouse.  We then decorated and assembled boxes to use as packaging and wrote a letter to our families advertising our mice.  In maths we calculated totals using different coins and made the same value using different coins.  To support using money in real life situations, we also played shopkeepers and calculated giving the correct change from various amounts of money.  We also talked about ‘giving’ and how we can give other things, not just money, such as our time and help.
