Review: Learning Resources Money Activity Set

Learning Resources

Sebby is in Year 2 at school and has started learning about money.

As part of his home learning this week, he was set some work to do involving money and it was the perfect time to bring out his Learning Resources Money Activity Set.

The set has been designed to encourage children to use real-world situations when learning about the value of money with this money-themed activity set.

In the box:

    • 70 plastic UK coins
    • 12 x play notes (£20, £10 and £5)
    • 8 x double-sided price tags
    • 12 double-sided money puzzle cards
    • Wipe-clean piggy bank card
    • Double-sided spinner

The set is perfect for developing coin value recognition and early financial skills for children aged 5 and over.

Sebby’s home learning involved identifying the different coins before then trying to find the least amount of coins to match the price on the card.

On the other side of the card is a picture of the correct answer, so the children can work alone if they want to.

Sebby’s favourite activity by far was doing the double-sided money puzzle cards which showed a picture of an item to buy and the price on one side of the puzzle which needs to be matched with a picture of notes and coins on the other side.

The next step of the activity for us is to use the money like a shop and begin to work out the correct change from given prices.

This set is great for helping the kids with their reasoning skills as well as adding and subtracting and is perfect for children in KS2 who are studying for their SATs to help them gain an understanding of money and how it works, which features in the testing.

The Money Activity Set has an RRP of £15 and is available from all good toy shops.
