wb: 13.7.20 This week we are learning about money

Friday 17th July

Today we are going to recap on this week’s learning about money.

 

Here is a video about British currency notes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DDI_RlZB0c

 

This next video about making money. It is filmed from ‘The Royal Mint’ where British coins are made. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EPVPcGtjA0

 

You can revisit any of the games and activities from this week.

Thursday 16th July

Today we are learning to count in coins.

Lets start by recapping on the value of coins by looking at this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs8F_g3MGtM

 

Yesterday we started to look at how we can add different coins to make an amount. Have a go at the toy shop game and see if you can choose the right coins to pay for the toys. There are different levels of difficulty for you to choose from. Choose the ‘mixed coins’ option.

Wednesday 15th July

Today we are learning to count in coins.

Lets start by singing the money song to recap on some of the coins values: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFzAU3u06Ps

When we go shopping and we want to buy something we use coins and notes to pay for it. This can be easy to find the right amount of money if it is the value of a coin.

For example:

But what if you didn’t have a 10p coin. What could you use?

We could use 1p’s

But this would be a lot of 1p’s to carry around.

You would need to add up the value of some other coins to make the 10p.

Here are our coins:

 

We can use some of our knowledge of bonds to 10 to help us.

We know that

5 + 5 = 10 so 5p + 5p = 10p

 

If we use some of the smaller coins we can also make 10p.

How many ways can you make 10p?

 

Here is another way:

2p + 2p + 2p + 2p + 2p = 10p because when we count in 2’s we know that 5 lots of 2’s will make 10.

 

We can add coin values to make any amount of money and there are different ways that you can do it.

 

Have a go at finding the right coins to pay for this toy:

 

 

You can find this by adding the values of the coins together.

One way that you might find is:

10p + 5p + 1p = 16p

 

Here is a challenge for you:

 

Here is a useful chart to show you ways to make amounts up to 20p. They only show one way for each amount to 20p. There are lots of different ways that you can make these amounts using the coins.

 

Have a go at one of these activities:

 

 

Tuesday 14th July

Today we are learning to recognise notes (in the British currency)

Yesterday we learnt about British coins. Have a look at this PowerPoint to remind you about coins.

The notes that we use as currency in Britain look like this:

   

   

 

The five pound note is the same value as five pound coins.

The ten pound note is the same value as ten pound coins or two five pound notes. 

The twenty pound note is the same value as two ten pound notes, or four five pound notes or twenty pound coins.

The fifty pound note is the largest value. How many pound coins do you think is the same value as a fifty pound note?

How many ten or five pound notes would be the same value as a fifty Pound note?

 

Here is a PowerPoint about the notes that are in the British currency.

Sing along to this fun song about money https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/ks1-maths-money/zht4nrd

 

See if you can complete the activities below about British currency notes.

Plenary:

Monday 13th July

Today we are learning to recognise coins.

Have a look at this PowerPoint about the different coins and notes we use in this country.

Have a go at this activity about coins. You may need some real coins to help you.

Plenary: Here is a challenge for you:

Friday 10th July

Today we are learning to compare time. We often compare time using the language:

faster, slower, earlier and later.

Now we are going to compare different amounts or measurements of time using time language:

seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years.

We are going to use this knowledge to help us understand examples such as when someone wins a race, the length of time will be shorter and if someone takes longer the length of time will be larger.

Have a look at this PowerPoint:

Challenge activity

Have a go at these activities:

Thursday 9th July

Today we are learning about some of the different measurements of time.

Each day is split into 24 hours. Each hour is split into 60 minutes and each minute is made up of 60 seconds. Have a look at a clock face, you will see that the hands of the clock are moving over time. some clocks have a second hand that counts the seconds in the minute. It will go around the clock in one minute. The minute hand (the long hand) will go around the clock every hour. The hour hand (the short hand) moves much slower and will take 12 hours to go around the clock. This hand goes round twice every 24 hours (one full day).

 

Have a look at this PowerPoint presentation which will help to explain about how much time things can take.

Can you answer these questions?

 

Have a go at this activity and if you want a challenge then try any of the activities after.

 

Wednesday 8th July

Today we are recapping on half past and O’clock when telling the time.

Lets remind ourselves what half past and O’clock look like on a clock.

When it is something O’clock, The minute hand will be on the 12, but at half past the hour, it will be on the number six. You will notice that the hour hand moves and will be between two numbers on the clock at half past the hour. It will point to a number when it is O’clock.

 

Have a look at this activity. Can you tell if they are showing O’clock or half past times by drawing the missing minute hand on the 12 or the 6. The clue is to look at the hour hand which will be either on a number or between two numbers.

 

Have a go at answering these questions on this activity.

Tuesday 7th July

Today we are learning to tell the time for half past.

Yesterday we looked at the clock face and found out that when the long hand (the minute hand) is on the number 12 (at the top), it is something O’clock and the short hand (the hour hand) is pointing to one of the numbers on the clock telling us what O’clock time it is..

If it is half past, then the long hand (the minute hand) will be on the number 6 which is half way round the clock. The short hand (the hour hand) will be pointing between two of the numbers on the clock. This will show us that it is halfway between the o’clocks and will be half past the earlier number.

Look at this PowerPoint about half past.

Have a go at the activity for half past.

Monday 6th July

Today we are learning to tell the time using O’clock.

Look at this PowerPoint about the different ways we tell the time. Can you think of any ways?

Have a look at a clock face.

 

There are 12 numbers around the clock and two (sometimes three) hands. The hands will move around the clock during the day and point to the numbers, this will tell you the time.

We will start with telling the time for O’clock.

On the clock there is a long hand (the minute hand) and a short hand (the hour hand). The long hand (the minute hand) will travel around the clock past all of the numbers, once every hour. When the long hand is on the number 12 (at the top), it is O’clock. The short hand (the hour hand) will be pointing to one of the numbers on the clock and this will tell us what O’clock time it is. For example, the clock above is showing 8 O’clock because the long hand is on the number 12 and the shorthand is pointing to the number 8

Look at this PowerPoint about telling the time for O’clock.

Friday 3rd July

Starter activity:

Today we are learning to order numbers.

Have a go at this activity:

Thursday 2nd July

Today we are learning to understand place value using these two signs:

Look at this PowerPoint to understand these two symbols. and how they work between two numbers.

Top Tip: When you see one of the crocodiles between two numbers, the crocodile is always facing the bigger number.

The crocodile likes to eat the biggest number!

Have a go at this activity:

Wednesday 1st July

Today we are learning about place value. Yesterday we looked at our tens and ones in 2-digit numbers.

 

It is important that we write our two-digit numbers the right way round.

For example: 

 

You can see that these two numbers have different amounts of tens and ones and therefore their value is quite different. 31 is a higher value than 13.

Have a go at the activities in this PowerPoint.

 

Wednesday activity

Tuesday 30th June

Today we are learning to Partition numbers. We are finding out how many tens and ones there are in a 2-digit number.

Here I have written the 2-digit numbers onto the chart. Can you see how I have counted the tens and ones and written them onto the table.

Look at this PowerPoint where you have to work out the 2-digit number from the tens and ones shown.

Have a go at any of these activities:

Monday 29th June

Today we are learning to count to 100. Lets start by having a go at this activity:

Do you know what numbers are represented here?

 

Have a go at answering these questions.

  

Here is your activity:

Friday 26th June

This week we have been learning about Fractions. We have learnt about finding a half of an object and an amount and we have found out how to find a Quarter of an object and amounts.

Watch this PowerPoint and see if you can answer some of the questions.

Have a look at these shapes. Can you say whether they are half or a quarter shaded?

 

Have a go at any of these activities.

Thursday 25th June

Today we are learning to find a quarter of an amount. A quarter is one of four equal parts. Together, four quarters will make a whole amount.

This is the symbol for a quarter ¼

Watch this PowerPoint which shows you how to find a quarter of an amount. You can join in practically with some resources whilst watching the PowerPoint.

Have a go at these activities about finding a quarter of an amount. If you want to do it practically first, then have a go at Farmer Jake’s farm animals activities where you can cut out the animals and share them fairly between the fields.

Remember when you are finding a quarter of an amount, you must make sure that you share the numbers out fairly and that each 4 quarters must be the same. When you add the 4 quarters together, you should have your whole amount that you started with.

 

Fractions fact – Did you know that 2 quarters is the same as 1 half!

  

Wednesday 24th June

Today we are learning to find a quarter of a shape. A quarter is one of four equal parts. Together, four quarters will make a whole.

This is the symbol for a quarter ¼

 

We will start by finding a quarter of some shapes.

Use the template attached below and cut out the 2d shapes.  To find a quarter of the shape you will need to fold the shape in half and then fold that folded half in half again. When you open up your shape, you should have  4 equal quarters.

 

Look at this PowerPoint about quarters and complete the activity.

 

Tuesday 23rd June

Yesterday we found half of a shape. Today we are going to find half of an amount. We will do this by sharing the quantity of objects, fairly into two groups.

Have a look at this PowerPoint and see if you can work out how many each half will be before the objects move into the two groups.

Can you share the picnic food out between the Grinling’s? You have to share it fairly between the two of them. You can cut out the food pictures or draw them in the two boxes.

Monday 22nd June

Today we are learning how to find half of a shape.

A half is one of two equal parts. Together, two halves will make a whole.

This is the symbol for a half ½

Have a go at this activity which is about making pairs.

See if you can do this practically at home with a different number of pairs of socks.

What do you notice about your answers?

 

Monday 15th June

We are going to double an amount today. When we say double, we mean ‘twice as many’. When we double a number we add the same number to itself.

 

 

 

Sing along to this song to remind yourself about doubling.

Complete the activities on the attached sheet. How many can you complete?

Set yourself a 5 minute timer to do these activities. When the timer runs out stop laugh

Friday 12th June

Today we are learning about arrays. We are looking at how many objects are in each column and row.

 

 

Look at this picture?

 

We need to sort objects into rows and columns to create an array to help us count the total.

Here is an activity sheet for you to complete. 

Thursday 11th June

Today we are going to use repeated addition to find a total amount.

Here is an example. We have some cakes. They have 10 candles each. How many candles do they have altogether?

 

Using repeated addition, our number sum will look like this:

10 + 10 + 10 = 30

If we use a number line it will look like this:

 

Have a go at finding the total number of objects by using repeated addition. There are some extension activities for you to try if you like as well.

Wednesday 10th June

Today we are looking at equal groups and working out how many of these groups there are. Can you add the correct numbers to this activity?

 

Here is a challenge for you to do.

 

 

Tuesday 9th June

Today we are going to count in groups of 10. Have a go at this activity. Can you calculate the total by counting in 10’s?

  

 

If you want an extra challenge, have a go at this activity.

 

 

Monday 8th June

Look at these 10’s frames. Can you count the amount of counters in each frame and write the amount underneath or on a piece of paper from section a. If you feel like a challenge, perhaps you can try section b.

Can you see a pattern with the numbers?

Friday 5th June

We have been adding together equal groups of objects to find a total. We use arrays to create these equal groups and build them up into columns or rows. This will help us to count the amount that is in the group.

What is an array? An array in maths is an arrangement of objects, numbers or pictures in columns or rows. The purpose of an array is to help children understand multiplication and division.

 

Here is a video that will help to explain the concept we have used this week.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=47&v=XOyOVDMjUdo&feature=emb_logo

 

See if you can answer these questions

 

 

Thursday 4th June

This week we have been adding together equal groups of objects to find a total. We have counted in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Equal groups mean that each group has to have the same amount.

Look at this question.

How do you know which groups are equal? What does it mean?

Dora has made equal groups because she has 3 groups of 3 bundles. Rosie has 2 unequal groups – they have a different amount in them.

Have a go at this activity. Can you show this in more than one way?
