Day 1 -
This week we are going to be looking at money. Today the focus will be on coins. I want you to have a think, what coins do you know of? I would like you to have a look at the picture below, see if you can guess what those coins are. Then have a go at drawing your own coins and labelling them. You can even create your own shop and put prices on with coins you have just drew.
Day 2 -
Today we are looking at notes. What notes do you know of already? Do you know what the biggest note you can get is? You can get a £5 note, £10 note, £20 note and a £50 note. The £ stands for pounds. Look at the pictures below and become familiar with the notes. Now you can play a game with your family. Pick a note, say a £5 for example, then you have to describe the note and have your family guess it. You can do it with them describing it and you guessing it too.
Day 3 -
Have a parent work with you today, or another family member. Using the purse template below, have an adult ask you to draw the different coins and notes you have learnt this week.
Day 4 -
Today you are all going to become shop keepers! You need paper and a pen. You can either draw your own coins and notes for this or you may be able to borrow some from your family. What I would like you to do is to write down what you are selling at your shop. This may be sweets, chocolate, fruit or toys. Then you need to put a price next to the writing. The prices need to be either the coins or notes you have learnt this week. Then, wait for your family customers to come! Parents, when playing with your child don't give them the correct coins all of the time, let them work it out!
Day 5 -
I hope you all know a little bit more about money then you did at the start of the week. I would like you to work out these questions, they involve counting in 10's and 2's so follow the songs below first of all.
If I want to buy a teddy and it costs £30, how many £10 notes do I need to hand in?
If I want to buy lunch and it costs £8, how many £2 coins do I need to hand in?
If a T-rex toy costs £50, how many £10 notes do I need to give in?
If an Ice lolly costs £4, how many £2 coins do I need to hand in?
