Time is a really tricky concept for some young learners to master. If you feel you peaked with quarter past and quarter to, then you have the option to revise this instead on Purple Mash. THERE IS NO PRESSURE TO MOVE ONTO TIME TO FIVE MINUTES.
As the concepts get trickier and the explanations get longer, we've had to split many of Miss Westmancoat's group's videos into 2 parts to comply with the file size limits. Our top tip? Have a biscuit break between videos!
Monday: Miss Westmancoat's Maths Part 2
Monday AND Tuesday: Miss Price's Maths
This video deals with o'clock and half past. You may want to split it and deal with o'clock today and half past tomorrow (there won't be a new video tomorrow). As well as the MyMaths task (which you shouldn't complete until you feel confident) there's an o'clock activity on Purple Mash today, and a half past one tomorrow.
Tuesday: Miss Westmancoat's Maths Part 1
As per yesterday's advice...if you feel you met your match with time and are not ready to take on anything harder, you can visit Purple Mash for some revision activities instead. No pressure!
Look out for part 2 below - the length of explanation made the file size too large. Today's recommendation? A glass of squash and a dance around the living room between parts!
Tuesday: Miss Westmancoat's Maths Part 2
Wednesday: Miss Westmancoat's Maths Part 1
Today’s task is on durations of time. Remember, there is no pressure to move onto this if you feel that you have reached your limit and would be better off practising previous concepts. You can head to Purple Mash to try these out. One day, you will master these other skills and there is no rush to do so!
It’s also the last of the ‘two-parters’ for this week. Some Wednesday wisdom? Between parts, why not take a big stretch and do some ‘triangle breathing’ like Mr Randall taught us last term? It’s what Miss Westmancoat is doing right now after the 4th attempt to upload the video!
Wednesday: Miss Westmancoat's Maths Part 2
Wednesday AND Thursday: Miss Price's Maths Group
Just like earlier in the week, this video is designed to cover two days. We suggest splitting it into quarter past (Wednesday) and quarter to (Thursday). There is a Purple Mash task to match on each day, and you should only attempt the MyMaths task if and when you feel confident. If you know you struggled with o’clock and half past, we would suggest not moving on to this at all yet. Use a clock or watch at home to keep practising instead.
Thursday: Miss Westmancoat's Maths Group
One for all the group to join back in with today, and only 1 video! This lessons focuses on concepts such as earlier, later, before & after, along with also comparing different units of time. For example, whether 6 days is longer than 1 week, or whether 10 months is shorter than 1 year…? As it’s not too clock-heavy, even those less confident with some of the harder time telling skills should be able to join in with many parts of this.
