£2 + £1 = £3

50p + 20p + 10p + 5p + 2p + 1p = 88p


Total in pounds and pence = £3 and 88p or £3.88

Total in pence = 388p


Are you familiar with these coins? If not, ask an adult to let you have a look at some actual coins so that you can get used to the size, shape and colour of each type.


After that, you'll be ready to have a go at the questions!
