Example text

Extend to using ten 2p coins and ten 1p coins, so that there are two piles of 2p coins – total 30p. • Extend to other types of coins – for example: ten 2p coins and two 5p coins – total 30p twenty 1p coins and four 5p coins – total 40p thirty 2p coins, eight 5p coins – total £1. • Extend the number of types of coin – for example, three different types: ten 2p, twenty 1p and four 5p coins – total 60p six 5p coins, three 10p coins, two 20p coins – total £1. • Extend to numbers of coins that do not pile up into ten exactly – for example: twelve 2p coins and ten 1p coins – total 34p five 5p coins and five 2p coins – total 35p.

The progression will be explored in the subtraction activities 17 and 18. This activity will help children to: • develop a visual picture of subtraction • link subtraction with addition and use the term ‘difference’ • subtract numbers up to 10. You will need these resources: • up to 20 counters • number lines where the scale is matched to the diameters of the counters, for example: The activity • Begin with the question: How can we use the number line to show 8 − 5? • It might be natural to start with the eight counters on the line and then take five away (below), leaving three.

Are there any other connections you could make with 20p? • Extend the task by using the number line to count in twos. For example, take five 2p coins, and ask the child to place them along the line. Where would you place the first 2p coin? Where would you place the second? Why are we missing one place out each time? Where do five 2p coins reach? What coin did we place at the ‘10’ mark at first? What does that mean about the value of five 2p coins? Developing counting and finding the value of numbers 33 ACTIVITY 12 Counting small amounts of money This is perhaps one of the simplest but most effective activities for reinforcing understanding about the value of numbers.
