Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Skip counting can be used to work out how many 10 p coins are needed to make a given value.
  2. When you reach the value needed, you must stop counting.
  3. The number of 10 p coins needed will be less than the value of the item.
  4. Not all values can be made using only 10 p coins.

Common misconception

Children may confuse the number of coins with their value, so count in ones, or revert to counting in ones. They may have difficulty counting on to reach a value when some coins are already present.

Present situations where both 10 p and 1 p coins are used to reach the same amount to stress the difference in value. Compare sets of 1 p and 10 p coins with sets of 10 p coins drawing attention to the importance of the value of each coin.
