Providing a meaningful context will help consolidate their learning.
Fantastic KS1/KS2 resource linked to money that you can differentiate easily.
A fantastic resource to help children learn change in a meaningful and contextual way.
Giving change is always a tricky concept for your children to grasp. That’s why it is important to give them plenty of role-play time in shop situations and many problems in context.
This resource is broken down into stages depending on the level of your children and gives the children a simple problem, ‘I had 45p to spend. I bought one thing and now I have 20p left. What did I buy?’
The children then count on from the smaller amount to the larger amount to determine the cost of the item purchased.
There are many possible answers to choose from.
A wonderful way to integrate context and problems into your money lessons.
