For today’s warm up, place some coins in order and ask your child to find the next coin to join the sequence and explain why this would be. The purpose of this exercise is to practise coin recognition and becoming confident with saying each of their values our loud.

Explain that today we are going to be looking at recognising the value of 1p, 2p, 5p and 10p coins.

We can use pennies to pay for items and the coins represent different amounts of pennies. Discuss the value of each coin and different statements such as two penny coins are the same as a 2p coin. Five penny coins are the same as a 5p coin.

For today’s please use either real 1p coins or  cut out 20 pieces of paper into coin shapes and write 1p on each of them.

Can you regroup the penny coins according to the following values: 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p?

You can record by writing 1p + 1p = 2p or drawing two penny coins and that is equal to a 2p coin.

Remember we want to find out how many penny coins are equal to each of these amounts and rather than paying with ten penny coins in a shop, we can use a 10p coin. 



Today I have set some phonic games on Purple Mash. You will be making words that start with the sounds: sc, sk, sm, sn on one game and the other has words starting with: bl, br, cl, cr. You will need to choose the correct ending to make a word. All of the words are real words. Happy blending!



We are going to imagine that we are on a trip to Rochester castle. Using Resource 2 (two pages) look at photo 1 – imagine you have arrived in Rochester and can see the castle and the castle wall. – How do you feel? What would you say to one of your friends? Look at the next photo showing the steps up to the entrance. Imagine you are walking up the steps. Talk to your adult about how you might feel, what you might be expecting, what you would say to me if I was there too. Now write a sentence or two to describe what you feel, what you might say or point out to one of your friends.
