Achieving our best by learning together and serving one another.



Today we would like you to choose a few items from around your home and set up a shop! 


We have included some price tags and money cut outs but you could make your own or use real money instead. 


Take turns choosing one item from the selection and counting out the coins to pay for it. 


You could explore how to pay for the same item using different coins, for example: a ball that costs 5p could be paid for with five 1p coins or a 5p coin etc.


Allow your child to be the customer and also the shopkeeper checking that the correct money has been received.  There is no need to introduce the concept of 'change' at this stage.


We would love to see a photograph of your shop so please email us if you can.


Have fun with your learning!
