This week we have been handling crisp (real!) £20 notes in our bid to ensure that we get the right change when we go shopping! Some of the items in our shop were rather overpriced, but we enjoyed playing shopkeepers and using mental maths to work out the change we needed.

The homework task this week follows on from this, but there is nothing like using maths in the real world – so make sure that when you go to the shops this week, you practise working out how much the things in your basket will cost, and how much change you should get back!
