We are using numicon to solve our maths problems. These are plastic pieces that give your child a feel for the value of number. Learn the value of the pieces.
See how fast you can shout out the number.
By the end of Y1 your child needs to recognise the
8 coins and £5 £10 £20 notes.
So we are also learning about money.
Things to do together...
1. When you are shopping tell your child to read some of the prices. Try to find the cheapest... the most expensive... have a look at the receipt when you get home! Help them understand one pound is worth more than one penny.
2. Empty out your purse (if you still have actual money in it!) and let your child sort the coins out.
3. Get them to count in 2's... 5's and 10's...
