This clip can be used in a lesson on adding and using money. Pupils can be given a selection of toy coins and a set of priced objects can lie with the teacher. Pupils can then be asked to buy the products they want but have to work out the correct amount of money before they try to buy; if they have the wrong amount, they will have to go to the back of the queue. This will help pupils to familiarise themselves with money and using different coins together.
