As you can see from the Thinking and Talking task we are looking at money and wellbeing this week.
For today's story I have chosen "Thoose Shoes." It is about a little boy who is desperate for a pair of black high tops with white stripes. But Jeremy's family cannot afford a pair of new shoes , let alone "those shoes" even those his are worn out. The story however, has a touching twist at the end and demonstrates the message "it's better to give than recieve."
- What is money?
- Is there anything you would really want to buy if you had some money?
- How was Jeremy kind in the story?
Today I would like the children to use a tablet or a laptop and play this great game for maths by top marks.

Alternatively just like we did at home create your own snack bar or shop playing with real money.
