The children have been talking about money and what we use it for, they decided to hide it in the sand and then take turns to search for it. They then counted how much they had found and looked to see what numbers they could see on the coins. Some children went on to draw pictures of the coins they had found and some suggested that we make a treasure chest.
“This one has a 10 on it”!
“Look how many I found, I could bay toys and sweeties”
“Its got a 5 on it”.
