Where does our money come from?

Thinking about the letters we have been writing to different people to find out about the jobs they do, do you think they get paid for doing these jobs? 

Think about the types of money we have.  How many different British coins and notes are there?  Can you name/recognise them?  You may like to check by downloading the British Money poster.

Are you given money?  Maybe you have been given some money for a birthday or Christmas?  You might be given pocket money, money for helping with different activities at home?  Do you help when shopping maybe by handing the money over or by checking the change? (You may have to remember pre-covid!)

Please download the purse or wallet or draw your own.  In or around the purse or wallet, write your ideas of where money comes from ie birthday money etc  Please also write a sentence about why you think a vet, a police officer or a football coach needs to be paid.
