Literacy Focus: using speech punctuation correctly.
We're continuing to develop our speech punctuation skills today. Open the sheet and complete the activities below. For an extra challenge: could you write a short story using speech marks and paragraphs. Good luck, agents!
Calculating change from larger amounts
If we are we are paying with £5 or £10, things can get more confusing.
The first thing to check is whether the change is less than £1.
If it is, then we just use our jigsaw numbers!
Have a look at this:
My Food costs £4.49
I am paying with £5. How do I calculate change?
£5 - £4.49 = ?
We need to put the amounts of money into the same format:
E.g. £5.00 - £4.49 or 500p - 449p Columns are tricky here because of the double zeros in the larger number:
500p £5.00 To do this we need to double borrow
- 449p -£4.49 from the hundreds/ £.
The easiest way is to use our jigsaw number knowledge:
I know what I need to get from 49 to the next 100 or £1 ---> 51p
From 449p to 500p I use my Jigsaw number knowledge: 449p to my 500p ---> 51p
How about if I am paying with £10 for this food? Convert / change the money to the same format
£10.00 - £4.49 or 1000p - 449p
I need to add in another step.
I use my Jigsaw numbers to get to the next 100p as before.
the next hundred pence is 500p or £5 ----- > 449p to 500p ---> 51p
From the £5 (500p), we need to find the difference between £5 and 10
The amounts in our jumps are the amount of change we would get from £10.
Let's carefully put them together - remember when we write money, the last two digits are the p
---------------------------------> £ .51
The pounds go before the decimal £ 5.51
Challenge trick - optional!
One other trick you may wish to try to avoid double borrowing is ADJUSTING - subtract 1p from the £5 (500p) AND the amount you spend
and put into columns: 4 9 9p (I really like this one but it takes a while
- 4 4 8p to get your head around)
