This week Reception have started learning about money. Linked to our book of the week Hansel and Gretal we have been paying for sweets to go on our Gingerbread house! Most children are now able to identify coins and me and Amy have been very impressed with some children who are able to think of different ways to pay for each item. The children have took this new learning into their play and been making their own items and pricing them up to sell. Some children have produced some fantastic mathematical mark making. Well done Reception!

‘That’s £1 it has 100 pennies in it…. that means £2 is 200 pennies’ Umar
