Local children enjoy making money for number project
Hundreds of local children have been drawing their own £100 notes - and thousands of these designs are on display from Saturday in the Victorian Gallery at New Walk Museum.
One hundred of the children’s designs have been chosen for a special display, and six notes have been printed in quantity, to show what a million pounds looks like.
The bank notes are part of a project organised by Dr Rose Griffiths from the School of Education to help local children see how our number system is built on tens, hundreds and thousands. It follows a much-loved venture last year, when City and County children made over 10,000 salt-dough hedgehogs. The hedgehogs were touring schools until last week, when they went into hibernation.
The exhibition is open from 11am to 4pm every day from Saturday 21st to Wednesday 25th November. Visitors can make their own £100, count bundles of money, play money games and see money from around the world.
