This week’s focus is a continuation of our work on money. We would like you to do as much of this work as practically as possible. As with last week’s work we have included some worksheets to give your adult some ideas
- Set up a ‘shop’ where you can buy and sell things.
- Practise giving the right amount of money for an item (use 10p’s and 1p’s to begin with) with items priced below 20p.
To add an extra challenge you can then use 2p’s, 5p’s and 10p’s to make amounts with items priced up to 50p e.g. 22p, 35p, 40p.
- Next, practise buying more than 1 item by adding the prices together (again keep the total below 20p to start with and use 10p’s and 1p’s for the children to pay with).
Challenge yourself with items that add up to below 50p paying with 10p’s and 1p’s then try paying with the exact amount using a mix of 1p’s, 2p’s, 5p’s and 10p’s.
- After that you can play the game, giving change. If you go to the shop work out what can you buy with 20p or 30p or 50p. Would you get any change? How much? What coins would you get in your change?
- *Parent/ carer help – when finding change with money it is easier to do it as part of counting on/up to the tens number (either 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 etc) although it is technically a subtraction sum. This way of doing subtraction is known as ‘find the difference’. If you look at the worksheet below it will explain it more clearly than we can here.
