Get to grips with money with this versatile game designed to develop rapid recall of number pairs to 100
(10 + 90, 20 + 80 and then 25 + 75, 35 + 65 etc.) Secure knowledge of these facts makes finding change from £1 a whole lot easier.

Children loved being able to 'cheat'. Differentiation within the game enabled everyone to take part - a very noisy and productive time. Children learning without realising it!

Ever heard of learning money with metre sticks!?

This elegant but simple activity will help develop recall of the number pairs that add to make 100 and so help with finding change from £1.

A straightforward, clear representation. Children were intrigued about using a metre stick to learn about money! Most of the children in the class were able to calculate change in 10ps in the first lesson!

This pair game will provide challenge and develop problem solving skills while you are consolidating addition and subtraction facts within 20.

(Ages 7-10): The Number Triangle Game (£0.60)

When children first learn to add and subtract, they will be encouraged to use their fingers to help them. This is a good strategy for small numbers.

Once they have understood the concepts, they then need to memorise key addition and subtraction facts. This is faster and more accurate than counting.

The number triangle game is a really powerful way of helping your child to become fluent with the number facts. It should be played daily until the facts are mastered.
