The Clock and Tables!

The girls in Room 8 have been working very hard this term. We now know that working with numbers becomes a lot easier when you have learnt your times tables! So keep revising ladies 🙂

We are currently learning more about the topic of ‘Time‘.

Below are some tips for learning time at home:

  • Use an analogue clock or watch to read the time. If your daughter has her own watch she will be able to use it daily and get used to counting the minutes on the clock face.
  • Encourage your child to count ahead using the clock or watch e.g. It is 20 past 2 now, basketball starts at 3, how many minutes is that?
  • Encourage your child to convert minutes into hours and minutes e.g. 94 minutes is the same as 1 hour and 34 minutes (revision of 6 times tables will help, it will help count in 60s- 60,120,180 etc.)
  • Use real life word problems e.g. If I walk into the supermarket at 11.04 and leave at 11.48, how long did I spend inside?

Also, here is a great website that may help:

Happy Maths!
