  This week we are going to continue to learn about telling the time. This week we are going to look at how to tell the time to one minute using both analogue and digital clocks. Please don’t worry if you struggle with this at first, there are 3 lessons about telling the time to the closest minute as well as some games on the Extra Challenges tab, so you have lots of time to get it. Why not try to tell the time using clocks around the house through the day as well. What time do you eat your lunch? What time do you get up? What time do you go to bed? Can you find this out by looking at a clock?

  Towards the end of the week we will also look at the duration of events, thinking about how long they take, when they start and when they end. We will also solve some problems to do with time.

  There is a clock that can be moved to show different times that might be helpful allocated on Power Maths and a link to other online clocks that can be used, on the days it might be helpful.

  We will use the work from our text books (the pictures are below and you have been allocated the lessons on your Power Maths accounts if you would prefer to use this) for most of the week.

  Have a look at the Discover page below. This is the page that we usually look at together after you have written your LO. Have a look at this and see if you can figure out the answers to the questions, remember to use all the information on the picture to help you. Once you have done this, look at the Share page next to it to see if you were correct. Did you use the same method as the book? 

     Have a look at the Think Together page that we normally look at in pairs or groups. Spend 5 – 10 minutes looking at this page, remember it’s not about answering all the questions, it’s about getting your brain started. You can write down as much or as little to help you. The answers for these questions are in a document below. How did you do? If you made mistakes can you see where you went wrong and do you understand the answers now?

  The questions you would normally do in your book and the answers you would use to mark are below. Spend about half an hour on these, remember how many questions you normally manage to answer in class, try to finish about that many. Remember to mark each question as you go, so you can check you are on the right track after each question. Remember to correct yourself before you move on to the next question.
