Comparing costs and budgeting

This week the children have been taking part in a very worthwhile life skills block on budgeting in Maths. They have been comparing costs of the same items from different retailers to work out the best value. They are now taking part in a budgeting challenge to source and “buy” items from a wish list with a budget of £300. The tricky part will be deciding which items to leave off their list if they cannot afford everything!
