Week beginning 18th May 2020

This week for maths we would like you to explore money;


Money song: 


Money story: 


*Look at coins – 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1. Look at the features of the different coins, talk about how one 2p is the same as 2 x 1ps etc. 


*Have 10/ 20 1p coins. Explain that you’re going to drop some coins into a money box/ bowl. 

How many coins did I put in the money box? How do you know?  What did you do to help you to count the coins? Repeat with a different amount of coins.

Year 1s and reception children who’d like a challenge can count in 2s, 5s or 10s, use those coins instead. 


*Identifying the given amounts by counting out the coins.  If you don’t have a printer, just write out the amounts and the children can find the given amounts.  The latter sheets would be year 1 based.


*Investigating making different amounts. E.g how many ways can you make 5p, 10p, 20p etc. Year 1 can you make 50p? £1. (please explain that £1 is the same as 100p) 


*Play shops! Make labels for the items in the shop (choose your values dependent on your child) and buy 1 or more items. Can you add them together? How much money will you need? Do you have enough money? Do you need change? What if you had 20p/50p? Which items could you buy?
