Activity 1: I have set you two tasks on my maths, ‘these are time between’ and ‘Telling the time 2.’ These tasks are to do with how long it takes to do something (the duration) and what units of time (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks etc.) it takes to do things in.
Activity 2: Have a try of A, B or C on page 94 of your ‘Target your maths’ book. I have uploaded the answers below for you. Remember to use them to check and then look back at the book if you make a mistake to work out where you have gone wrong.
Activity 3: Have a look at the document below, this is from our power maths work, looking at months and years and using a calendar. I have also uploaded the answers for you so you can check your work and look back at it to fix any errors.
I have uploaded a song below to help you learn how many days are in each month. (Look out for February, it has 28 days most years and 29, once every four years – these years are known as leap years.) I have also uploaded a rap from Jack Hartmann for you to enjoy! Although he seems to have forgotten that February has 29 days every leap year!
The Maths is Fun website also has some useful information about this to help you. (Scroll down for some interesting information about the Roman calendar)
Extension 1: Have a look at the activities below:
Do 15 star jumps,
Sit on the floor and stand up 10 times,
Read a book or a chapter of your book,
Count to 100,
Recite your 10 times tables, in a witch’s voice,
Recite your 8 times tables, in a whisper,
Do 5 sit ups or push ups.
How long do you think these activities will take you? Estimate how long you think they will take and write this down.
Now if you have a timer (or can borrow a phone with a timer) time yourself doing these activities. Where your estimates correct or not?
Extension 2: I have allocated you some work on MyMaths about place value and the greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols, to help you keep your skills in this area sharp. Remember the hungry crocodile eats the biggest number!
