Lesson details

Key learning points

1. The size of a coin is not related to its value.
2. The name of a 1 p, 2 p, 5 p and 10 p coin is related to the number of 1 p coins it is worth
3. Both a 5 p coin and a 10 p coin are smaller than a 2 p coin but are worth more.

Common misconception

Children may understand the value of each set of coins but incorrectly use a symbol ( < > = ) in comparing them.

Encourage reading from left to right e.g. ___ is less than / greater than ___. Ensure children have opportunities to place the coins within the symbols to understand the correct orientation of them.
