Hello year 3! 



In this lesson, children will convert between pounds and pence. They understand that 100 pence make one pound and can write an amount in pounds or pence from representations of coins.  Some children may not understand that 100 pence is equivalent to £1 and may simply add the numbers that are on the coins. For example, they may think a £1 coin and a 20 pence coin is 21 pence in total because they have seen the ‘1’ on the £1 coin and the ‘20’ written on the 20 pence coin and have added them together. To support ask: How many pence are in £1? How many pence are in 20p?
