Our topic in maths for the next 2 weeks is money. We will be focusing on making amounts up to €2 using coins. We will also be working out ways to give change. A great way to help your child with this topic is to let them handle real money - count it, pay for items, work out how much change they should get and what coins can make up different amounts . For example 37c = 20c+10c+5c+1c or 10c+10c+10c+2c+2c+1c+2c.
Here are some games you can play to help you learn about money
