Mrs Allen’s Year 2/3 class ‘spent’ a recent Maths lesson shopping at a variety of small businesses that popped up at various locations around the classroom.
Students acted as shopkeepers or consumers and could spend their money on a range of goods and services. The students practised purchasing goods, handing over money, calculating change and passing back the correct amount to their customers. Jobs were rotated in the lesson so everyone got a chance to spend up big or handle the change.
