The Great Pet Sale - Mick Inkpen - Twinkl
We took this to my eldest son, who could not remember it and his young brother read it to him and they both enjoyed it again. Children are encouraged to share both their opinions and understanding of the story, before retelling it in their independent activities, with the aid of picture prompts. A rat labelled at just one penny is eager to be bought, and desperately pops up on each page, hoping to be chosen.This means it can be used as a starting point for money activities with children working with money up to the value of a pound.

With nursery I tend to use 1 pence coins as each penny is worth one, which makes it much easier to count. I have used it in maths activities and lessons with children from Foundation Stage to Y4 in a variety of ways – at the beginning of lessons to set the context for work with money, in the main part of the lesson using the ‘pets’ for differentiated money or problem solving activities and in plenaries as a novel summary of the mathematical thinking in the lesson.Use what thas been learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes.
