MATHS- Loom video followed by an activity


Activity 1 Monday

Re-cap the coins that we looked at last week. Who can remember their names? What are their shapes? What colour are they? Ask the children the names of the coins and discuss how they are different. (Shape, Colour, Size and VALUE). Explain 2p is 2 x 1p etc.


Activity 2 Tuesday

Using some coins reinforce their value, up to 50p. Show the children that 2p is 2 x 1p. 5 p is 5 x 1p etc up to 10p /20p. Ask them how many pennies might make 10p / 20p / 50p etc. Explain that £1 is 100 pennies and £2 is 200!!! Can the children count the correct amount of pennies for a given coin. I.e. 10 for a 10p.

Activity 3 Wednesday

Model ordering the coins you have from the least value to the greatest value i.e. 1p, 2p, 5p etc. Explain that the coins increase in value. Very similar to how numbers increase. Mix the coins up and ask the children to order the coins from the ones with the least value to the greatest.

Activity 4 Thursday

Using objects from around the home, role-play shop keeping with the children. Ideally the objects should be labelled with post-it-notes (or similar) identifying the price i.e. toy car  – 5p. Ask the children to pay for the items using the correct coins.

Friday –

Activity 5 Friday

Building on the learning from yesterday complete some more role play using objects. This time label the objects with prices that require use of multiple coins. I.e. 3p (2p + 1p). Ask the children how they could pay for the item as we don’t have 3p coins. If they are struggling remind them about the work that they have done on addition. (You may need to model one of two examples first). Explain that we can add coins together to make new amounts and sometimes we have to do this in real life. Complete several role play examples.
