Wow! What an amazing time we had at the bake sale...all the children (and teachers) had a great time setting up their stalls and selling their food. We were so pleased that we had some parents who could stay and help us too. All the customers had great manners and it was exciting to see children selling their food and giving the correct change. Thank you to everyone who helped make our bake sale a success:) We are now going to decide what we will buy for our new library.
Today we have been completing our posters, writing adds on the concrete and taking about what we will be baking tonight. In the morning we need to bring our baking to the hall, then take our bags to our class. If we need to finish our posters, we need to do that in class before school. Our teachers will take to register in the hall in the morning, then we will wash our hands and get ready to sell our products.

1. When was money invented?
2. What are the names of the people on our notes and why are they famous?
3. What are the birds on the notes and on the coins?
4 New Zealand's currency is called dollars ($) and cents (c). What is the currency of another country around the world?
Click on the images below to find out some interesting facts about money and to play some games that will help your learning. Next time you buy something, see if you can work out what notes and coins you would need, and what change you might get back.
