Welcome to Richardson Endowed Primary School

Money - holiday homework

Today we counted the kind and generous donations from the Harvest festival.  We sorted the coins in lots of different ways using a Venn diagram to help us.  We then added up all of the coins and recorded what we had counted.


Over the holidays, can you play some of the money games on the Topmarks website and make sure that you can name and recognise all of the coins that we use in the United Kingdom.  To earn 5 house points make a comment on the website about something you notice about the coins or something you found out about the coins.


For a merit, answer the questions below, either in a comment on the website or bring your answers on a piece of paper to school.  Answers to be in by Thursday 2nd November 2017.

1.    How many pennies make £1.00?

2.    How many 50 pences make £1.00?

3.    How many 20 pences make £1.00?

4.    How many 10 pences make £1.00?

5.    Can you think of 3 different ways to make 50 pence using the U.K. coins?



We made a vendieagram

1. 100
2. 2 X 50p
3. 5
4. 10
5. 10p + 10p + 20p + 10p
5 lots of 10p
20p + 20p + 10p

The UK coins all have the queens head on them.
The 20p and 50p pieces are both heptagons- this means they both have 7 sides!

I liked the piggy bank totalling game and 'how many in your hand' game was really funny because it said 'bye bye'!

1. 100
2. 2
3. 5
4. 10
5. 10p x 5
20p + 20p + 10p
1p x 50
Tess G x

They all have the year they were made on them

1. 100
2. 2
3. 5
4. 10
5. 20p +20p +5p+5p

Today I learnt that coins are made in the Royal mint.

1. 100
2. 2
3. 5
4. 10
5. 1 x 50p
50 x 1p
5 x 10p

1= 100
2 = 2
3 = 5
4 = 10
5 = 5 x 10p
10 x 5p
2 x 20p + 1x10p


I would prefer to have in my pocket just one 50p because it is the same value and only 1 coin.💷💰

Well done Toby - you've earned a merit and 5 house points - well done! Which would you prefer to have in your pocket?
two lots of 20p and a 10p, five 10 pences or 50 one pennies?

The coins all have the queen on.
Some coins are commemorative. The people who collect these are called numismatists.

1. 100
2. 2 50p
3. 5 20p
5.2 20p 10p
5 10p
50 1p
