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 on money.
Starter: number bonds to 10. Can your child tell you any? If they need help get 10 object and see how many ways you can find 10.
Main Activity: Today using their coin recognition and money knowledge I would like they to find different ways of making an amount. You can give them an amount start with between 10 and then build up. Challenge your child to not just use 1p coins if you can. Your child can draw out the coins they wish to use or they could write it as a number sentence, i.e. 2p+5p+10p=17p. Try to see if they can find 3 different ways for each amount, you only need to do 3 or 4 amounts.
Remember any work needs to go into their green work home books and on tapestry please.
