Today we are learning about pounds and pence. £ and p
Begin the lesson by watching the very useful video below.
Note for parents/helpers
You will notice that we do not use the decimal point for recording pounds and pence at this stage.
So if I had a five pound note and four ten pences I would write this as
£5 and 40p
If I had two pound coins and three one pence coins I would write this as
£2 and 3p.
Complete the questions below in your exercise book.
I have also included a voice clip that talks you through the questions. So if you would like a bit of extra help listen to me explaining the questions before you start.
Click on the star for the answers.
You might want to talk through these questions with a grown-up.
They are a bit trickier.

Part 2 of English work
Today you are going to imagine that you are James in the very first part of the story, chapters 1 and 2.
Draw a picture of James and ask your grown up to draw you a speech bubble. Look at my example below.
Write in first person as if you are James and try to explain how you are feeling , why you feel like that and how your aunts treat you. Read my ideas to help you.
Remember full stops and capital letters.
Think about all the English skills that we have learnt in Year 2. Make it interesting!
