Year 1 children had a busy morning as shopkeepers at their Used Toy Sale last Thursday, providing them with a valuable real life opportunity for them to handle money and provide change for customers.
The Year 1 topic this term is ‘Toys - Past and Present’ and children have been collecting used toys since Christmas. The children were responsible for pricing all of the items and setting up the Toy Shop before children from Nursery-Year 2 were invited to purchase a toy.
Year 1 children worked together to work out how much change they would need to provide and all Nursery-Year 2 children left very satisfied customers! Year 1 children now need to count how much money they have raised and decide upon a charity to which they will donate their proceeds.
