# Mathematics

ELG

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: count to 100 everyday songs/video to watch.

Main Activity: you can also start with a quick coin recognition. Today I would like your child to think about change. You can give them a coin worth anything between 5p and £1. They then buy an item with that worth a smaller amount. How much would they have left over/change? For example, I have 50p and I bought a car for 30p I now have 20p left. This could be challenging so start small and just objects if they need.

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