Year 2 - We went Shopping!

As part of our maths learning and also linked to our English, Year 2 went shopping in Sally’s School Shop!  


We we went in with our money and worked out what coins we needed to buy things and explored the different amounts.  Some of us added the prices of items and some of us worked out the change. It also gave some of us the chance to really embed our understanding of tens and ones in two digit numbers through using 10p’s and 1p’s. We had such a great time that we had to re-visit it in the afternoon too! 


The children really loved this role play activity and we could see so many maths skills within the lesson. Opportunities like this are second to none!  Maybe you could set up a shop at home too using change? Otherwise, there may be a request for a shopping trip coming your way soon! 😆
