This week we have been focusing on Australian coins. We watched a funny you tube clip that described each coin and we have learnt lots of new information! We ordered the coins, described them, had a go at writing the value of each coin and played coin memory. We were very excited to create our very own class shop and we brought in items from home to sell. Before we began setting up our shop we looked at some grocery shop catalogues and priced various items. It was interesting to guess how much things would sell for at the shops. We voted on a class name – it is called ‘1G Fresh Food’. We are still in the process of creating signs for our special grocery store but please feel free to buy some fresh produce anytime! We will begin to look very closely at Australian notes next week!
