1 Sing 5 currant buns song- use something to represent the buns and pennies. Talk about how the number of buns goes down while the number of pennies goes up. If you are not sure of the words it goes:
5 currant buns in a bakers shop
Round and fat with a cherry ( or sugar) on the top
Along came ……….. with a penny one day
Bought a currant bun and took it away.
