Lesson video

In progress...


Hello, everyone.

My name is Mr. Dobrowolski, and I'm really excited you decided to join me today to learn all about money.

So in this unit we'll be studying money.

Lesson one is revisiting coins.

So before we get started, make sure you're in a nice quiet place where there's no distractions.

And once you're there, let's go.

Great, let's have a look at today's lesson agenda.

So first we'll be recapping the value of coins, then we'll complete our Talk Task, then we'll compare the value of coins and finally you'll be ready for your Independent Task.

To complete this lesson, you will need a pencil, a notebook, and some coins.

Make sure you ask an adult to help you get some coins.

If you don't have these items, pause the video now and go get them.

Un-pause when you're ready.

Great, so have a look at this picture.

What do you think we'll be learning about in this unit? Take a look, have a think, pause the video, and resume when you're ready.

Great, so probably based on the picture, you know we're going to be talking about money.

And that money includes pounds and pence.

So hopefully by the end of this unit you'll be such an expert and you'll be able to go to the grocery store and help mom and dad pay for groceries.

So let's recap the value of each coin.

Lucky us that on the coin itself it tells us what the value is.

So my turn, your turn.

One penny, two pence, five pence, 10 pence, 20 pence, 50 pence.

Well done, and always remember that when we write pence, we don't have to write out the word, we can just put 2p, so instead of saying two pence, we could just write 2p.

Okay, so in my purse I have some coins.

They're both one penny coins, so count with me, one, two.

I have 2p in my purse.

Is there a coin on this screen that has equal value to 2p? Let's take a look.

Ah, I have a two pence coin.

Two one penny coins have equal value to one 2p coin.

Your turn, take a look at your coins, can you find a 2p coin and hold it up to the screen? Go and hold it up in five, four, three, two, one.

Let me look.

Well done.


Let's have a look in my purse again.

Count with me.

One, two, three, four, five.

I have five one penny coins.

Hmm, take a look at the coins on the screen.

Are there any coins here that have equal value to 5p? Hmm, not 1p, not 2p.

Ah, I have a five pence coin, because five pennies have equal value to one 5p coin, because five and five are equal.

Your turn.

Have a look at the coins in front of you.

Can you find a 5p coin and hold it up to the screen? Ready? Go.

Five, four, three, two, one.

Hold it to the screen.

Well done.

Oh, boy, I have a very full purse this time, but if you'll notice, these coins in my purse are organised like an array.

So instead of sitting here and counting one by one, one, two, three, because that would take me a very long time, what I want to do with your help is skip counts.

I can see, ah, these are organised into rows and each row has one, two, three, four, five.

So let's skip count by fives.

Ready? Five, 10, 15, 20.

So I have 20p in my purse.

Is there a coin here on this screen that's equal to 20p? Let's take a look.

Ah, I have a 20p coin.

20 1p coins have equal value to one 20p coin, and that's because 20 and 20 have equal value.

Your turn, have a look at your coins.

Five seconds to find a 20p coin.

And go, five, four, three, two, one.

Hold it up to the screen.

Well done.

Okay, now it's time for our Talk Task.

Remember that when we do a Talk Task, it's really important that we use these sentence frames and say it out loud.

So I'll do the first one, so that you're really clear on what to do, and then you're going to go off and do your own Talk Task.

So on the left here, on this side of the screen, I have a list of items, a chocolate bar, a pencil, and a lollipop.

I'll do the chocolate bar.

So I will say, this chocolate bar costs 20p.

Now my job is to find the purse that matches the cost of this chocolate bar.

So which purse has 20p? Let's take a look.

Ah, I think I found the purse.

So now I use this sentence and I say, purse C has 20 1p coins, which is the same as one 20p coin.

Your turn, you complete the Talk Task for the pencil and the lollipop.

When you're done, make sure you un-pause the video and resume what we're doing.

So, ready? Pause the video.

Complete your work.

Great, so let's just go over it so we're all on the same page.

I think all of you identified that this pencil costs 10p and purse B has 10 1p coins, which is the same as one 10p coin.

Same as the lollipop.

This lollipop costs 5p.

Purse A has five 1p coins, which is the same as one 5p coin.

Well done.

Okay, so on my screen I have two coins, a 20p and a 10p coin.

Which coin has greater value, and how do you know? Have a think, pause the video, and once you have an answer, make sure you resume the video.

Good, so 20p is definitely of greater value, and that's because it takes 20 1p coins to have an equal value to 20p.

If I was going to use 1p coins, I'd have to get all 20 of these to make 20p.

But to make an equal value to 10p, I would only need 10 1p coins.

So 20p is actually double the value of a 10p coin.

Now, can you give me a sentence to compare the values of coins? Mm is of greater value than mm.

Can you fill in the blanks? Well done.

20p is of greater value than 10p.

Bonus question, can someone remind me really quickly what does the p stand for? Shout it at your screen.

Good, it stands for pence.

Well done.

Great, so what else could we use to compare the values instead of the words is of greater value than? Hmm, well I'm thinking of a symbol that looks like this.

The greater than symbol.

So here, when I use this symbol, all I'm really saying is that 20p is of greater value than 10p.

And we use this sign because it's true, 20 pence is of greater value than 10p.

And the opening of this symbol always faces the greater value.

So you have to think about it like a mouth, the opening of a mouth.

Which value would you rather have, the greater value, or the lesser value? I don't know about you, but I would definitely want to eat more food, so the mouth of this symbol always opens to the greater value.

You're going to fill in the price labels on each side and then make sure you fill in the circle using the greater than, less than, or equal to sign.

If you feel really confident and you know what you're doing, feel free to pause the video now and complete your Independent Task.

If you're not feeling super sure, stay on with me, we'll do the first one together to make sure we all know what we're doing.

So, on our Independent Task, we're going to fill in the price labels first.

So this banana costs 20p, because that's what it says on my coin.

So I'm going to fill 20p in on the price label.

Then I'm going to go to the other side of my worksheet.

Ah, I can see that my candy costs 2p, so I'm going to fill in 2p.

Hmm, what has a greater value, 20p, or 2p? Well, I know that 20p has a greater value, so I'm going to use my symbol here and I'm going to make sure that the symbol opens to the greater value.

So you always want the opening facing the greater value.

Make sure you fill in all of the labels and all of the circles for your Independent Task.

On the bottom here, I want you to think of a coin that has a greater value than the one on this side of the worksheet.

So pause the video now, have a go, and then when you're ready, we'll look at the answers together.

So pause the video now.

Great, let's go over the worksheet together.

So I did the first one.

So let's go over to the second one.

Ah, I can see that my ice cream had a value of, costs 50p, so I filled in 50p, and my pencil costs 10p.

I know that 50p has a greater value than 10p, so I made sure that my symbol was opening up to the 50p.

For number three, my lollipop, as I can see, costs 5p, so I type that in, and my rubber costs 5p as well.

Ah, 5p and 5p, those are the same numbers.

5p is equal to 5p.

So I use my equals to sign.

And then for the last one, I knew that my apple costs 5p and I had a symbol here.

Now, the opening was to the blank side, to this lemon, or this soda pop bottle, so I know that whatever I put on this side had to be of greater value than 5p.

I know that 10p is of greater value than 5p.

However, you could have also put another coin.

You could have put 20p or 50p, because all of those coins have a greater value than 5p.

So any of those coins, 10, 20, or 50, would have been fine.

Really well done.

I see you guys did some great work on this.

If you'd like to, please ask your parent or carer to share your work on Twitter, tagging @OakNational and #LearnwithOak.

Now, really, really good work.

Please don't forget to do your final quiz.

And I really hope to see you on the next set of lessons for this unit.

Really good job.

See you next time.
