Maths Activities

This week we are learning to recognise the 1p, 2p and 5p coins.  See if you can find some real coins that look like these at home. 

One pence coins look like this. They have a picture of the Queen on one side and they can have pictures like these on the other side.

What do you notice about their colour?

Can you find the year in which the coin was made?

Two pence coins look like this. They have a picture of the Queen on one side and they have a picture like this on the other side.

Compare the 2p to the 1p coin.

What's the same? What's different?

Five pence coins look like this. They have a picture of the Queen on one side and pictures like these on the other side.

What do you notice about their colour?

How are they the same as the 1p and the 2p coins? How are they different?

Now try counting coins in these activities. If you can’t print them out, don’t worry. Look at the pictures on the screen and count the coins in each purse. When the question asks you to colour the coins, you could draw the ones you need on paper instead.

Try this challenge. Using four 2p pieces and two 1p pieces is there a way to make all the amounts from 1p up to 10p? 

It might help you if you had the coins in front of you to put into groups. You might need a number line like this one to help you to count up how much money you have.


Look at the activity on the sheet below. You don’t need to print it out, you can draw your answers on paper or you could even use real coins and take a photo of your answers.
