Larch and Kingfishers Classes

Real Life Maths

In maths recently, we have been learning our number pairs to 10 and 20. We have realised that knowing our number pairs can help us when we are shopping and using money, working out our change correctly.

Today we put our learning in to practice. We walked down to the shops in the village, clutching our 20p’s! We found only a few things that we could buy for less than 20p. Chelsea said – “this means that there are not many things you can buy with 20p, ” , “20p is not a lot of money.”

When we had chosen what we wanted to buy, we used our fingers to work out what change we would get. We recognised the coins and made sure we counted that we had the correct change. Take a look at photos of us shopping today;

    You have been busy learning the number pairs. I’m very impressed that you were able to check your change at the shops.
