Starter: Look at the clock.... What time is it? What will the time be in one hours time? What will the time be in five minutes time?
Welcome back, we are going to look at money today.
If you can get a selection of coins out of your money box. You can always write coins onto a piece of paper instead.
Your first task is to order them into smallest to largest.
5p 20p 1p 50p 2p £1 £2
Now you will need to have a few of each coin if you can. If like me you have a pot of copper coins just use these.
Repeat this process a few times, using all the coins under £1.
Now we are going to look how we write pounds and pence.
If you have no tens in your number, you will put a 0 in to represent the ten. e.g.
If I picked up 5p, £1 and 1p
Have a go and see how many different totals you can make. If you want to add some notes into your calculations, take that challenge.
Things to remember......
£1 is the same as 100p,
£5 is the same as 500p,
and £10 is the same as 1000p.
The point that is used within money separates the hundreds from the tens and ones. So above we made £1.49 which can be written as 149p. We NEVER use both £ and p in our answers. Just use one or the other.
