# Year 2 Money - Recognising Pounds and Pence

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising and using symbols for pounds (£) and pence (p) and combining amounts to make a particular value.

Children in Year 2 should be familiar with and able to recognise all the coins we use and their values. They should be able to look at a selection of coins and work out the total, perhaps by starting with the largest value coin and adding accordingly. They should also be able to recognise the symbols for pounds and pence.

This quiz will help to familiarise your child with the coins we use, their values and the symbols used for pounds and pence.
