I taught Y1 for 3 years. Have they told you what subject you are teaching? What ideas do you have so far?
I like the idea of picking ingredients Chewielouie. I usually try and weave a story to give a purpose as to why I need their help to pick ingredients for your cake. Just wondering if there is a story you could link to. Just be clear about what your objective is (presumably solving problems involving money). You coud go in dressed as a chef with your apron and equipment and ask for their help. My class love a bit of role play like that.
Not enough time for a story (20mins) so have produced a letter sent from Balmoral House regarding the Diamond Jubilee. 'We can not make a cake big enough for the whole school so would you help me design and make cup cakes?' This could demonstrate how this lesson could be used as part of a larger topic. I am planning to use real money will this be appropriate for yr1.
