This week in maths we have been learning about money.

We begun the topic by identifying the different coins that we use in England and learning about the value of each coin.

Then we worked hard to find different ways to make amounts up to 10p. We had to remember to only use the available coins.

Next week we will be continuing to learn about money. We will be making amounts up to 20p using different coin combinations. We will also be comparing and ordering the values of groups of coins.


How to help at home

  • Have a look at some real coins -can you order the coins from the smallest value to the largest?  How much do you have altogether? What could you buy at the shop with your coins?
  • Go to the shop and buy something using coins e.g. a loaf of bread.
  • Make equivalent amounts e.g. show £1 as 100p
