P1 were introduced to 1p and 2p coins today. They had to sort the coins into 2 categories with a partner.

We talked about how both coins are bronze, the 1p is slightly smaller than the 2p coin and how 2 x 1p coins are the same as a 1 x 2p coin.

Ask your child if they can pick out any 1p or 2p coins from your purse or wallet at home. Remind them that the pennies have to be given back though!
