You will need to ask to borrow some coins from an adult for this activity. What coins do you recognise? Can you write out what each coin is next to a real one?
Try laying out some coins on a surface - how much is this in total? Add them together to work it out, e.g. 2p + 2p + 1p= 5p
How can you make 7p using coins? Is there a 7p coin? No.
How about1p+1p+1p+1p+1p+1p+1p=7p 5p+2p= 7p
Are there any other ways?
Ask an adult to put 2 or 3 coins in a jar/purse/pile on the table. Can you count how much money there is altogether in that pile?
When you are out at the shops or when shopping online can you find things that cost under 50p? Write a list or draw the things that you find.
