Teaching Money to Mixed Rec/Year 1

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by EmilyW226, Jun 17, 2011.

    My money week is just one example of free resources you can find here. They will also come in and help with curriculum development re. Financial capability. Too late for this year but worth considering for next year.

    I think you need to decide what you want the children to learn first. What do they already understand?

    Are you looking for ways to link money to the seaside? Which mathematical objective would fit with that? What language/vocabulary are you looking to promote?
