Our new Maths topic is Money. For this week’s homework task, you will need to research how much everyday items cost. You can use websites, supermarket flyers, research in the shops or the best source of information…the adults at home!
Find the average cost of the items below to make you think about how you might spend your money. You can buy any brand (or non-brand) you want and you can record the cost of the item and where you bought it from. You might also want to record if any of the items are on sale or in an offer .e.g. B.O.G.O.F. Once you have your individual prices, add them altogether to get a total. Record the information in your Maths Homework jotter for Friday 28th April.
