 Do you know all the different coins and notes we use and how much they are worth?

# Year 1 Money - Value

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising and knowing the value of money, including different denominations of coins and notes.

Children in Year 1 should begin to recognise the value of different notes and coins. This may begin by understanding what pennies are, and gradually widen to understanding the value of other coins and then notes. Eventually, children should understand that the same value can be made in several different ways, using differing combinations of coins and/or notes.
