Yesterday you had a little refresh on the days of the week, so you all know that there are seven days in a week. For the rest of the week we are going to be exploring time which is a measurement of how long something takes to do.  You know that there are 7 days in 1 week, but do you know how many hours there are in 1 day? Watch the clip below to explore daily routines.

  

 

Now talk to someone in your family and think about the different times of the day you do things at home such as morning, afternoon, evening, night time and how long doing the small tasks take.

 

For example, does it take 60 minutes (1 hour) or 3 minutes to brush your teeth? Choose some simple tasks to do at home, estimate how long you think they will take you to do, then ask an adult to time how long it takes for you to actually complete the tasks.  Look at the ideas below that you could time yourself doing. 

 

Brushing teeth / Eating lunch / 25 star jumps / writing out spellings / playing a game of snakes and ladders / 4 laps of the park on your bike /anything you want to time yourself doing – HAVE FUN! 

 

Next you are going to make the resources that you will need for the start of the lesson tomorrow.  

Write out numbers 1 to 12 on separate pieces of paper or print the sheet below and cut them out.

 

   

Topic

  • This week you are going to be learning all about different wild animals and making a poster fact file about each one.
  • First, we are going to watch the video and listen very carefully to the information
  • Then, we are gong to decide what information we want to put in our fact file - what would you like other people to know about them.
  • Next, watch the video again and remember the facts you want  - you can write them down or ask someone to do it for you in note form.
  • After, create your own poster fact file (see the templates below for an example if you want) 

 

If you want to choose a different animal to make a fact file about that's fine.

Activity

All groups

  • Watch the video below or choose your own animal to find out about
  • Think about what information is important about the animal  -  where does it live, who does it live with, what does it eat and how big is it?
  • Watch the video again and remember or write down what you want other people to know. An adult can help you or you can pause the video while you write. Don't worry about spelling mistakes, as long as you can read it.
  • Use your skills to create a colourful poster fact file about the animal you choose.

 

  • Be creative with your ideas - i'ts lovely to see everyone's different ones
  • Below are some ideas if you want

 

              

 

   

Maths

 

All groups - 10 minutes mental warm up - play helicopter landing and complete each section listed below for the number range for your group.  If you find your number range too easy or too hard you can try a different number range.

Note for parents – most children are familiar with a clock face and time related vocabulary.  The first step for children is to really understand that an analogue clock face is just a special kind of number line when introducing time. It is important to have a good understanding of the hour hand of a clock before introducing the minute hand.

 

All groups - Did you find out that there are 24 hours in 1 day!!!! We describe time as passing by in hours.

 

First draw an arrow on a piece of paper like this   

 

  

   

Next using the numbers 1 to 12 you made yesterday put them in a line like the picture below. 

  

  

Now get your arrow picture and place it under the number 3 as shown below

  

 

When the arrow points to a number, this tells us how many hours it is.  Instead of saying it is 3 hours we say it is 3 o’clock. Move your arrow on the number line to show the times below. You will find correct answers in pictures under the questions, so just scroll down the page to check you are correct.

 

a) show 6 o'clock

b) show 9 o'clock

c) show 2 o'clock

d) show 8 o'clock

e) show 10 o'clock

f) show 1 o'clock

 

 

 

We can use our number line to find out what time it will be one hour later. Put your arrow on number 3 to show 3 o'clock and answer this question by putting the arrow on the correct number of hours. It is 3 o'clock, what time will it be 1 hour later? See picture below for correct answer.

 

  

So to find the time 1 hour later you move 1 up the number line from 3. What would you do if you wanted to  find the time 2 hours later? YES that's right, you would jump 2 on the number line from 3 o'clock and land on 5 o'clock!

 

Next read the questions below then place your arrow under the correct numbers to show how many hours it is.  You will find the correct answers shown in pictures below the questions for you to check if you had it right! 

 

a) It is 7 o'clock, what time will it be one hour later?

b) It is 3 o'clock, what time will it be two hours later?

c) It is 4 o'clock, what time will it be two hours later?

d) It is 5 o'clock, what time will it be three hours later?

e) Now think about this one! It is 5 o'clock, what time was it one hour earlier?

 

  

 

How did you do? All answers correct!               

 

     Let's think about this, It is 12 o'clock, what time will it be one hour later?

 

Oh no my numbers only go up to 12 - what shall I do!!!!!

Instead of going up to 13 we make a special analogue clock number line, we put the numbers in a circle to make a clock face and start back at 1.  Set your numbers out in a circle like the pictures below and then we will look at the question again.

         

 

         

 

Great work, you have made a clock face! Now let's look at that question again. It is 12 o'clock, what time will it be 1 hour later? Put your arrow pointing to number

12, then move the arrow forward 1 hour, the time now shows 1 o'clock. 

 

     12 o'clock                                        1  o'clock

     

 

Hope you have enjoyed exploring numbers and how to set them out in a clock face! Look out for tomorrows outdoor clock building and more on time.

Diamonds & Hearts – Click on number range 1 to 20 for each section 

 

         

 

I hope you all found out it is called a hand when it is on a clock face. You have been working with the little hand that shows the hours. You will also know after finding that out that there is big hand on a clock face too, which show the minutes.  When the big hand is pointing to 12 it is always O’CLOCK.  See the clock faces below showing o’clock. 

 

 It is 2 O’Clock - 1 hour later it will be -           3 O’Clock - 1 hour later it will be     4 O’Clock 

                            

 

Now watch the clips below to learn more about time

 

               

 

Finally go into your garden or visit the park and make an outdoor clock face using any bits and bobs you can find, just like the lady did in the clip. Read the questions for your group and move the hands on your clock to find the answer.

Maths

 

Hope you have all enjoyed beginning to explore clocks in a fun way this week.  We will be doing a little more on time on Monday. 

 

All groups – I have put the notes from last Friday in again to ask you to reflect on where you are in your mental recall of addition facts.

 

Big Maths CLIC sheet. Before you complete the Big Maths Addition Sheet I would like you to think about the following questions and please let us know by email where you are at with your learning and your mental recall of addition.  Click on images below to open 

How many correct answers are you getting each week? 

Are you doing it at your own pace? 

Are you using objects or quick mental recall? 

Are you timing yourself? 

If you are timing yourself, what is your time for completing all 17, is it 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 2 minutes, let us know 

Are you getting them all correct in that time? 

 

Stars - The idea of the Big Maths Addition sheet is to develop mental calculations.  Once you have been successful in completing these weekly sheets correctly, begin to try and complete all calculations in a set time.  Start initially with 3 or 2 minutes and as your mental calculation skills improve reduce the time each week.  The Final goal is to be able to complete these sheets within 30 seconds. The sums are written in different orders each week!   

Hexagons - As stars except perhaps start off with completing in 5 or 4 minutes and slowly reduce the time over the next few weeks. 

Diamonds & Hearts - use objects or number line to help solve additions with no time limit.
