This week in Maths we will be learning about time.

Make sure you practise telling the time regularly using the different clocks around your house. 

Monday - Months and Years

Use the calendar to investigate the months in a year. Here's a Go Noodle song to help you remember how many days each month has. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhjG8fHxB2I

I've also posted a picture to show you a rhyme to help you remember the days and a trick with your knuckles. I use the knuckle trick every time I need to know how many days are in a month!

Tuesday - Hours in a Day

Read my facts carefully then complete the activity. This is an... interesting song which might help you understand when midnight and midday happen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8Ck7jlqdp4. If you can, try and sing along! P.s - watch out for the chilli challenge question! Give it a go, but if it's too tricky just move on.

Wednesday - Telling the Time

Can you tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes on an analogue clock?

Read the information on the left carefully, then try the activities. You can watch this video from BBC Bitesize to help you https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zqkwmp3 and this video to memorise how many seconds are in a minute, how many minutes are in an hour and how many hours are in a day! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEStq1e1Qrc

Bonus Question!! Do you know another way to say 3:15 (three fifteen)?

Thursday - Time to the Nearest Minute

Can you tell the time to the nearest minute?

Watch this video https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-third-grade-math/time/imp-time/v/telling-time-to-the-nearest-minute-labeled-clock-math-3rd-grade-khan-academy Then, read the information on the left of your worksheet carefully and try the activities. This is a tricky concept to learn through a worksheet and a video so don't worry if it feels hard. Just keep practising reading clocks often at home and you'll get it in no time.

Friday 

Today, practise your times tables on ttrockstars.com. You should have your log in inside your home learning book. If you find ttrockstars tricky, you could practise using this website https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/times-tables

Have fun!
