There's several ways you can do this, either
with one child at the front of the class or with groups of children
all competing together. The basic idea of the activity is can the
children be a checkout! The teacher (or another child) says what is
being purchased, for example 'Mars Bar 32p', and the 'checkout child'
mentally adds the price of the new item to the running total that
they're keeping in their head.
The choice of prices allows it to progress
from a very easy activity (where each item is priced between 1p and
10p and the final total is less than a pound) to a very challenging
one (where the children have to keep quite big totals in their heads
and add on prices of over one pound).
