We are a class of brilliant 6 year olds at Eastern Hutt School in Lower Hutt, New Zealand. This blog is where we share our learning with everyone. This year we have started with an even number of 10 girls and 10 boys. We love getting messages so make sure you leave a comment for us to read.
We are learning to recognise New Zealand coins and notes. Today we worked in co-operative groups to brainstorm all the features on the five dollar, ten dollar, twenty dollar, fifty dollar and one hundred dollar notes. We learnt about some famous New Zeanders such as Sir Edmund Hillary, Kate Sheppard Sir Apirana Ngata and Lord Rutherford.
What information did you find out in your group? Can you find out some of the security features on our banknotes?
We are brainstorming ideas about where money comes from.
How do we look after money? That's an interesting question!
