Please practise counting on and back in 2s, 5s, 10s (and 3s if you are Year 2). 


This week, we are continuing with our topic of money. We will be looking at making amounts, comparing, finding the total/difference and finding change. 


I wonder if you can use any coins you have at home to make the same amounts?


Can you make the same amount using different coins? 

Can you compare different amounts? 

Can you swap a coin for others and still make the same amount?
