A detailed lesson plan accompanied by a PPT and a lesson objective checker sheet. The lesson recaps place value and introduces students to decimals and using money in practical situations.

The PPT is an adaptation two other PPT resources I have used on skillsworkshop: ‘Multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100’ by Elaine Baskerville, and ‘Pounds to pence’ by Jennifer Williamson. Two contextualised worksheets (Salon and Garage), written by Carrie Bray, are also linked to the lesson plan.
