This session is going to focus on money and finding the correct change from different amounts.

 

Before you complete the task in today's session you need to remember that £1 = 100p (This will help you with figuring out how much change you get from each amount)

 

e.g. If you spend £1.57 and pay with a £2 coin you can work out the change like this - 

 

£1.57 = 157p and £2 = 200p

 

200p - 157p = 43p (you might need to work this out by setting it out using column subtraction)

 

Finding change from different amounts

 

Week Commencing 04/05/2020

Intended Outcomes:

For pupils to be more confident in understanding, relating and using systems of measurement in their everyday lives and within mathematical problems.

 Previous Weeks

Week commencing 13/04/2020

Intended outcomes:

To develop pupils broader number sense through exploring the differences between numbers in different representations and contexts.

Specific objectives covered across the week:

  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones)
  • Compare and order numbers up to 1000
  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations
  • Read and write numbers up to 1000 in numerals and in words
  • Add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p in practical contexts
Session General Notes Learning Acitvities/Web links/Worksheets
1

Objective: Recognise the place value of each digit in a three-digit number (hundreds, tens, ones)

 

For this activity, you will need a dice and something to act as a character for the snakes and ladders game. If you don’t have a dice at home then you can use this website to act as a random dice generator https://www.random.org/dice/

Practise recognising the place value in the different numbers by playing the Snakes and Ladders game on the sheet below.

 

If you are feeling particularly adventurous then you could try to make your own version of the game with different three or four digit numbers. J

 

Pupils need to successfully partition the numbers in order to move on to the square (e.g. 457 has – 4 hundreds, 5 tens, 7 units)

 

You can prompt by asking:

 

How many hundreds are there? How many tens? How many units? The pupils could also create a place value table to help them (we have used these in lessons)

2

In this activity, we will be looking at different numbers up to 1000 and thinking about the language and symbols involved in ordering them.

 

< means less than

 

> means more than

 

= means equal to

The following link provides some helpful information on the different symbols.

 

Inequality symbols

Try this worksheet ordering monsters using the more than, less than and equals symbols. To make things easier, first list the monsters in order with the smallest first. (You could use the number line to do this or cut the monsters out and arrange them on a piece of paper) 

3

 

Consider the place value of each of the digits within the numbers and ask questions like how many hundreds / tens / units does the number have?

In this activity, see if you can complete this worksheet on reading and writing 3 digit numbers filling in either the missing numbers or the missing words for each row of the table.

 

You could practise recognising different numbers by writing down three digit numbers for the children to practise saying the number

 

(e.g. Writing out 467 on the card and pupil to say out loud four hundred and sixty seven)

 

4

Try using the web links opposite to practise finding change from different amounts of money. Each game allows you to set the difficulty with options including increasing and decreasing the amount of money worked with and modes that show how much change is required if help is needed to begin with.
