Hello Magnificent Marmalade Minions!
How are you all doing? Hope you all had a lovely time in the sun last week. Wasn’t the weather beautiful? What did you get up to? I would love to know. I still miss you all and I look forward to seeing you soon.
This week, we would be learning about money! What currency do we use in England? If you said pound (sterling) or pence, you are correct! The symbol for the British pound is ‘£’ and for pence or penny, we simple write a lower case ‘p’. Can you name some of the currencies used in other parts of the world? Discuss this with your adult.
Our main learning objective this week is:
- to recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes.
Some of the key vocabulary we would be using this week include: money, pounds, pence, penny, notes, coins, price, count, cost, total, how much?, pay, spend, spent, compare, difference, £, p, greater than, more than, less than, equal.
Starter- Recap doubles:

Your PowerPoint for this week: Year 1 PowerPoint Money Week 9
Remember to choose worksheets based on our Minion’s understanding of the concept. Children may complete only one page of each activity.
Activity 4: Counting coins – This is a great opportunity to recap counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
Please remember that children do not need to attempt all three levels of the worksheets- 1, 2 or 3 stars. Choose the level suitable for your child or the level above if they are up for a challenge or make it a ‘Chilli Challenge‘ where children choose their own task from mild (1 star), hot (2 stars) or fiery (3 stars).
I cannot wait to see your fantastic work in the comment section below.
The worksheets are an added resource. You can make this lesson as practical as possible by getting children to identify and order real cons and notes.
