Teaching about money in Egyptian nursery/reception class

    Hi everyone,

    I am currently writing a maths programme for Egyptian British schools who follow the English EYFS curriculum. I have to write a week's programme on using coins. It can be very simple, but just wondering what local coins or currency tend to be introduced at this age to Egyptian children?

    Thanks in advance :)

    There used to be 5pts, 10pts, 25pts, 50pts (and smaller back in the day) coins but in general it's changed to notes now; although the 1LE went to coins (but notes still in circulation)

    Have I managed to confuse you yet?

    Thanks, so what would be used for children's maths lessons?

    Looking at some of mine, probably the number of slices in a pizza :)

    Maybe the size of Al Sisi's pay out from the Yanks, the Israeli's and the Saudi's! Cynical? Moi!
