Numbertime, Money: Up to £2

This clip could be used as a starter activity in a lesson on money. Pupils can watch the clip whilst holding a pre-made chart with different combinations of money drawn onto it. They can be asked to tick all of the ones that are the correct ways to make £2 and cross the ones which are not in the clip and thus do not work. This can then lead onto a subsequent activity where pupils take part in a treasure hunt for £2. Various coins can be placed around the room and it can be the pupils' task to make exactly £2. Once they achieve this, they should return to their seat to have it checked by the money counter (the teacher).
