# Mathematics

Shape, space and measures: Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

This week’s focus will be money.

Starter: describing properties of shapes. Could you describe a 3D shape to your child can they tell you what shape you are describing? Once you have said a few for your child could they say some for you. Example what shape has three sides or three corners.

Main Activity: to start with I would like you to ask your child what coins they can remember, if any? I have attached a sheet with all the coins on for a prompt. If there are any your child’s unsure off let them know.

Then move onto the game I have attached that reinforces which coins are which. When you get into the game click sorting and then choose one coin. Once they’ve your child is confident move onto two coins.

Remember any work needs to go into their green work home books and on tapestry please.
