Money Learning

Knowing how to handle and calculate with money is a very important life-skill.

During Year 3, children build on their knowledge and skills they have achieved during Year 2.

By the time children reach the end of Year 3, they should be able to:-

  • use decimal notation for amounts of money, e.g. £3.27
  • change amounts in £ to amounts in pence and back;
  • count money up to £10;
  • calculate change for amounts of money up to £1 mentally;
  • solve simple problems involving money;
  • use informal methods to add and subtract money amounts in £ and pence.

Our worksheets will support your child with these objectives.
