Money week


This week the children have been learning about money. They have looked at what money is and what it can be used for. They have also looked at the value of different coins and explored places that can keep  their money safe for them.

Look below to see some of the different activities we did throughout the week.

We designed our own coins.

We used our imagination to design our own purses to keep our money safe in.

We made money boxes.

We made coin rubbings.
