We'll be starting to learn about coins and value this week in school.
Using the 'Value Tokens', find different ways of making a certain number of dots e.g. what tokens do they need to make 5 dots? What about 7 dots? How many different ways can they find of making it? Which token is worth more? Which group of tokens is worth less?
Learn the different types of coins. Which coin is worth more? Link to Value Tokens if need be. Organise coins into the correct piggy bank to practise coin recognition.
Practise coin recognition and then start to make different amounts, just as with the Value Tokens (which can be used to help if necessary). Make small amounts such as 3p, 5p etc using coins.
Solve these addition and subtraction problems based on money.
Work on these reasoning problems orally.
