Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. A ten-spot token can be used to represent one 10 p coin and has the same value as ten pennies.
  2. The total value of a set of 10 p coins can be found by skip counting in tens.
  3. Counting backwards can be used to check the set has been counted accurately.
  4. Skip counting in tens can only be used to count the complete set, if all the coins are 10 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 10 p coins and other coins in tens.

Use pre-money tokens with ten spots alongside 10 p coins to start with to deepen the understanding of one coin representing a value of 10 Discuss deliberate errors, articulating thinking around why these cannot be correct.
