In today's lesson we are  continuing to add different amounts together. However, there is an extra step to reach the answer. 



1. Add the pence together, 50p + 65p = 115p = £1. 15p

2. Add the pounds together.

3. Add the two amounts together. 


GP: Work out the answers using the method above. 


Workbook sheets: 


1: Work out the answer using the method we have looked at so far (Add the pence, add the pounds.)

2: Add the pence together (90p + 50p = 140p) then, convert it to pounds and pence (£1.40p) afterwards, add the pounds. Finally, add the two amounts together. See picture below.

3. Similar to question 2, firstly add the pence together, convert it to pounds and pence. Add the pounds. Finally, add the two amounts together. See picture below.
