This term the children have been reviewing their money knowledge and recording amounts of money using both pence (p) and pounds (£). The children have enjoyed using the plastic money to complete a variety of tasks. It would benefit your child's learning if you could encourage them to use 'real' money whilst out shopping, write shopping lists and add the cost of items and discuss any 'pocket money' they are given. Please note that the children in Year 2 aren't expected to use decimal notation for money (i.e. £1.25 would be recorded as £1 and 25p).
