Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. A two-spot token can be used to represent one 2 p coin and has the same value as two pennies.
  2. The total value of set of 2 p coins can be found by skip counting in twos.
  3. Counting backwards can be used to check the set has been counted accurately.
  4. Skip counting in twos can only be used to count the complete set, if all the coins are 2 p coins.

Common misconception

Children may not fully understand the concept of unitising and may confuse the number of coins with the total value. They may also count sets of coins containing 2 p coins and other coins in twos.

Use pre-money tokens with two spots alongside 2 p coins to start with to deepen the understanding of one coin representing a value of 2 Discuss deliberate errors, articulating thinking around why these cannot be correct.
