The websites below have been tried and tested but it is vital when the girls are online that there is constant adult supervision. I will also continue adding more educational websites for maths so make sure to stay updated. Included below are notes for parents on the various topics we are covering this year which explain the content of each topic and some activities you can do with your child at home.
In second class the girls revise and learn; o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past times both on analogue and digital clocks. The time websites below will help reinforce this. If given an option in an activity, choose o’clock, half past and quarter times.
