Money problems based on the story of The Great Pet Sale.
Children need to find out the cost of each animal in the story (or prices could be provided e.g. in a role play pet shop as we did in my class) then complete the addition money questions, then find change due from 20p.
Story scribing is used to build writing skills in Early Years. This is an overview of story scribing and how to do it to ensure high standards and enable all staff/volunteers/students to move learning forwards. The sounds/tricky words expected to be known are based on those used in Actiphons and Letters and Sounds, so may need adjusting if you use alternative phonics programmes.
It would be useful as an introduction to story scribing and to explain story scribing to staff, volunteers, governors, SLT and Ofsted.
See also Story scribing autumn/spring term and summer term which provide checklists for all staff and adults working with children to show expectations at differing phonic levels.
