This week we have been solving problems with addition and subtraction in our maths lessons. At first we found using money and finding change tricky. We had lots of practise to help us improve our skills. We set up different shops in our class including a supermarket, a florist, a sweet shop and a cafe. We calculated the cost of the tiems we bought and then visited the bank to collect the money. The shopkeepers had to make sure that the money was correct. We had lots of fun!
