Year 2 Spring Term Block 1: Money
Children will count coins and notes (but not convert pounds and pence at this stage). There are plenty of opportunities for reasoning and problem solving during this fortnight: finding what can be bought and making totals using various coins.
Finding change is an excellent way to illustrate subtraction, which can be done by adding on to the smaller amount.
