Lesson 3- Finding Change

When we completed this learning in school earlier in the year, we did lots of work on number bonds. If children know their number bonds to 10, they can easily find change from 10p. If children know their number bonds to 20, they can find change from 20p etc.

Here are some activities to try first:
