Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. A single coin can represent the same amount as several one-pennies.
  2. The value of a five-pence coin is not related to its size, shape, colour or quantity.
  3. A five-pence coin has a value of five-pence or 5 p.
  4. The value of a five-pence coin is equal to the value of five one-pence coins.
  5. We can represent a five-pence coin as a five-spot token.

Common misconception

Children may think that larger coins or a greater number of coins represents a larger value.

Use pre-money tokens to draw attention to the value of the 5 p coin. When comparing 1 p and 5 p coins, ensure children swap coins for equivalent amounts to draw attention to the value of the coins as opposed to their size or quantity.
