Introduction to coins and notes

  • Year group: Year 1
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Money
  • Duration: 1 weeks
  • Keystage: KS1
  • Age Range: 5 to 6 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: N
  • Week Range: 9

In this chapter, pupils recognise and know the value of different coins and notes.

Building on introductory work in the early years and through real-life experience, pupils recognise and know the value of coins and notes and use language such as “pounds” and “pence”. They know that 100 pence is equal to one pound and start to use coins to count in 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s.

Reasoning - Problem Solving - Number Problems (KS1/2) - March 31st

There are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 children have to using four rules to solve two problems.

At KS2 children have some pretty tricky number problems to solve.

Every day in March the White Rose Maths Hub is aiming to put out a question of the day.

Reasoning - Problem Solving - Number Problems Galore - March 16th

Here are today's questions. There are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 problem children have to find missing numbers in an addition pyramid and see if they can reason to find a missing number in a different one. They then have to solve a multi-step problem, which initially looks easier than it actually is.

At KS2 children have to be able to adding fractions and decimals together and convert between fraction and decimal. For the second question children have to adding and subtract decimals after converting to the same unit of measure.

Mathematics Mastery

Coins and notes

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of coins and notes.
• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.

Resources shared by teachers

Year 1 - Summer - Week 9 - Money

This is pack 1 of 1 on Year 1 money for the summer term and covers the small steps:

  • Recognise coins
  • Recognise notes
  • Count coins

The resources aim to help children gain a deeper understanding of the concepts covered. Numbers are represented in a variety of ways and lend themselves well for use alongside concrete manipulatives such as place value counters and Base 10.

The resources include pictorial and abstract representations as well as reasoning and problem solving activities and more open ended problems to support and extend your whole class.

I hope you find them useful.

Money cards and Money problems

I used these with a year 2 class to teach addition and problem solving through money. These cards could also be used for: -Practising number bonds to 10/20 -Adding money -Use in a role play shop-price list maths resource-these challenge cards could be used for: -Applying addition and subtraction knowledge -Problem solving

Caterpillar Coin Amounts to 10p

Hands on Money activity. Each caterpillar is made of coins. Pupils can use the cards to add up the amounts (mixed coins - 1p, 2p and 5p) or build the amounts with actual coins. Includes an assortment of examples plus blank templates for building different amounts/using different coins etc. A version that uses coins up to the amount of 20p is available via the weblink.

1 pence Money Bingo

6 squares with different quantities of 1p coins; children have to count the pennies to see if they have the number that is read out by one person. - Giving children in the group a chance to 'be the teacher' and read the numbers to the group works well - reading numbers and associating them with money.
