Thursday 4th June

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well!


God of all wisdom,

We can't always understand what is happening around us,

Or see you at work in difficult times,

But we choose to trust in you.

Please grant us understanding.

Through Jesus Christ our teacher and our Lord.



Along with the school information booklet there is now a video for parents regarding back to school. It is on our website. Look under parents and then Covid-19.

I can recognise coins and count in 1s

I can use the coins to make the right money amounts.


Counting practice
o Show your child a 20p coin. Don’t name it.
o They have to count the number of pennies that coin is worth.
E.g. you show 20p, and they count: one, two, three, four… up to twenty. Then they stop.
o Do they count correctly? Do they stop at the right amount?
o Repeat this using a 5p, a 10p and, maybe, a 50p.


Challenge -
o Do as above but use a £1 coin (can they count up to 100?)



Five’s a Winner Instructions
           You need 10ps, 2ps, 5ps, 1ps – two of each of the first three and four 1ps.
                   You also need the Amounts Cards and some paper and pencils.


NB If your child is not yet ready for numbers above 20, only use the Amounts Cards between 10p and 20p
How to play

o Cut out the Amounts Cards and spread these out, face down.
o Set out your coins so you can both see them clearly.
o Take turns to play.
o Choose a card. Turn it over.
o Read the amount.
o Take one or two 10p coins according to whether the amount begins with ‘1’ or ‘2’.
o Take the correct number of 1p or other coins to complete the amount.
o Ask your partner to check. Have you made the matching amount correctly?
o If yes, draw a £1 coin on your paper.
o Now your partner has a turn.
o Choose another card and repeat. Can you make all the amounts?
The winner is the person who has drawn the most £1 coins on their page!

Use these cards or make your own.
