Money, Money, Money with Primary 1!

The Primary 1 pupils at Leswalt Primary have recently been learning all about money as part of their Maths learning and teaching.  To consolidate and reinforce the real life applications of money the pupils have been out and about spending their pennies.

 The boys and girls first went to Leswalt stores and spent money in the shop, using a shopping list provided by staff.  Mrs Gillian Murdoch, owner of Leswalt Stores, let the pupils scan the items into the till themselves.  They then later used their knowledge of how Leswalt store operates to set up their own tuck shop for older pupils, with the assistance of Mrs Smith.  This shop was open for business every playtime at school and sold a variety of crisps, sweeties and fruit.

 After the Primary 1 pupils had the final closing down sale of the tuck shop, they then had to count up all of the money they made.  The pupils decided to go into Stranraer and spend the money they made.

 Primary 1 and Mrs Smith went on the bus into Stranraer.  They had to count up the money to pay for their own ticket.  Once in Stranraer the children went to “Sweet treats” sweet shop to spend some money before walking down to Agnew Park.  While at the Park they enjoyed a play in the sunshine and also paid for an ice cream to help cool them down.  After an enjoyable morning, the children then bought a return ticket on the bus and travelled back to school.

 It was a fantastic learning experience for the young pupils and allowed them to learn more about money and use it themselves in a variety of real –life situations.
