Teaching and Group Activities for Understanding
Day 1 Teaching
Use mock or Interactive Whiteboard coins to show £2.40 and £2.04. Explain that the zero in £2.40 shows that are no pennies, and the zero in £2.04 shows that there are no 10ps. Which is more money, £2.04 or £2.40? Model adding and subtracting amounts of money. Play the ‘Nasty Game’ to make the smallest and largest amounts of money.
-- Play the ‘Nasty Game’, making 3-digit numbers with money.
-- Solve and create word problems for addition and subtraction with 3-digit amounts of money.
Day 2 Teaching
Show pictures of priced toys (see resources). Children work out how much it would cost to buy 10 whistles at 34p each. Model writing 34p in a money place value grid and moving the digits to the left to multiply by 10. Repeat for other toys.
-- Multiply and divide shop prices by 10 and 100.
