Hi everyone! I hope you all enjoyed our 'Under the Sea' topic, the children at home and school have produced some fantastic work!
This week, the whole school are learning all about money!
Can you please show your child a variety of coins, notes and debit/credit cards. Please discuss what money is used for and why we need it, also please discuss that adults get paid for working to pay for bills, food and everything else! Please follow the links below for songs and stories regarding money in the UK.
Literacy/UW: This week you have a big challenge! I would like you to set up your own shop or restaurant! First, you need to decide what you would like to sell. Maybe you would like to sell toys or pets? Or maybe you would like to sell sandwiches or pizzas? If you are setting up a shop then please write labels for the items you are selling and how much they will cost. There are some blank labels attached that you can use or you can make your own. If you are setting up a restaurant then please write a menu and write down the prices. There are some menus attached or you can make your own. It would be great to see you cooking food that you are selling! I would love to see photos of your shop/restaurant on Tapestry!
CL: If you are working in a shop or restaurant then customer service is very important. Can you be an excellent host or shop keeper? Do you remember to smile, say please and thank you and to always be helpful? Please upload videos to Tapestry of your child showing their skills! Don't forget that you will need to look smart and your shop/restaurant always has to be neat and tidy for the customers!
Maths: Please play the matching money quiz game that is attached. Can you also complete the coin recognition sheet and coin ordering sheet that are attached. Did you get many customers in your shop/restaurant? How much money did you make? The children may need support with adding money totals together.
EAD: Can you make your own sign for your shop or restaurant? Can you think of a name? What colours would you use? What do you think customers would like to see? Feel free to get creative and use a variety of materials! Please upload photographs to Tapestry.
I hope you enjoy the money topic this week! Have fun! I can't wait to see your ideas.
