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. 


Can you compare amounts of money? 


What is the same/different?


Remember the symbols we use to compare amounts smiley


<           When one value is smaller than another, we can use a less than sign.

>           When one value is bigger than another, we can use a greater than sign.

=           When two values are equal, we use the equals sign.
