Living and Learning: I recognise the importance of money.

Thursday 16 May 2019

This week, the class explored what it would have been like before money when trades people traded their goods with each other. They became a trades people and used their bargaining and persuasion skills to make trades with each other. We discussed how some things – such as a cow – were worth more than others. For instance, a bag of wheat. The children identified problems with this method and recognised how having money makes buying what you need both simpler and fairer.
