Day 7  - Tuesday 28th April 2020

Learning Focus- Pounds and pence

Remember to: 

1. When using a £ sign and decimal point, a pence sign is not needed. The amount before the decimal point represents the pounds and the amount after the decimal point shows the pence. 

2. For example, in £6.33, there is 6 pounds and 33 pence. There also needs to be two digits after the decimal point. 

3. Children may find the placement of a zero, especially after the decimal point tricky. For instance, if they had 3 pounds and 7 pence, children need to understand that 7 pence would be written as .07 not .7 or .70

Remember to select the Summer term- Week 2 - Pounds and pence Video. Children can pause the video and attempt to answer some questions or work through the examples of the tutorial using their workbook.

Work through the 'Pounds and pence' PowerPoint attached below.                                                                                      Have your workbook ready to work through the examples.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

3. Complete the 'Pounds and pence' worksheet which can be found in your home learning pack.                    Answers will be provided shortly via Parent Hub App.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

4. Challenge: As a bonus challenge, children can complete the NRICH extension.                                                                 The challenge is not in your home learning pack and should be completed in your workbook. This is a tricky challenge, however children should try their best to use their problem-solving skills to complete it.
