Over the last few weeks, we have been learning about Children in Need. We talked about the different things we have; loving families, a nice home and lots of toys. Sadly, we found out that some children are not as lucky as us. The different activities that we planned, led and took part in helped us to raise lots of money to help less fortunate children. Miss Maeer gave us the special job of being in charge organising and leading the activities.
We led and took part in lots of different activities to raise money for the charity. Our first job was to sort the prices, ice the cakes and sort the sweets.
To show our independence and all of the different skills we have been learning (maths, social, communication) we setup our sweet treats stall where we sold cakes, biscuits and sweets. We felt very grown up and responsible doing this. We placed our pennies on Pudsey, scored penalties against the goalies, played a golf tournament, sold books, had our faces painted and enjoyed soaking our teachers with wet sponges!
After the excitement of our fundraising day , we use our maths skills to help count the money. First, we recognised each coin and sorted them into sets. Next, we counted in 2s, 5s, 10s, 20s and 50s to count each group of coins. Michael was our maths genius and used column addition to help add up the amounts.
