"Time" is our new Maths unit! 1

We are beginning a new unit on time. We will be investigating how long a second, minute and hour is as well as learning to tell the time and solving time problems. Some of you may already be able to tell the time so you will be able to concentrate on the 24 hour clock and time problems.

Main Activity 1 Maths

Watch this video clip:

After you have watched the video, please answer the following questions/do the following challenges:

 

1.  What can you do in 1 second? Name at least 4 things.

 

2.  Other than elephants, are they any other animals that could be used which take as long to say? Could I use cats for example?

  

3. Using: 'one elephant', 'two elephants' etc, do at least 5 different activities and count the number of seconds that they take to do. Please make each of them less than 60 seconds!

     E.g. It takes me 10 seconds to do 10 star jumps.

                 It takes 37 seconds for me to walk 8 times from my kitchen to my room.

 

 Have a go at these. Please try to convert the following into seconds:

  1. 1 minute

3. Think about some time-related phrases that get used such as: just a second, in a minute, it took hours etc. Are these always accurately used? Can you explain what people mean?
 

4. Like Sabrina in the video, imagine that you are entering a competition to see how many words it was possible to recite/sing/rap in one minute! Get a timer or a clock with a second hand and take up the challenge!!

Main Maths Activity

 

For the rest of the week, we are going to be looking at telling the time. You will all be at very different stages with this which makes it a bit tricky!! Some of you might be able to tell the time to 1 minute, in digital and using the 24 hour clock, whereas some of you might be just starting! The handy thing is that our parents and older siblings will be able to help!

Telling the time in analogue to 5 minutes

This girl is great! Watch this video to recap telling the time in analogue to 5 minutes. Please get permission from your parents before watching You tube. Children should be supervised whilst watching You tube.

After you have watched the video, please choose one of the games to play and then complete one of the time worksheets depending how confident you feel!

Game - Time to 5 minutes HOT/ SPICY

Game - Time to 5 minutes HOT/ SPICY 1

Game - Time to hour, quarter and half hour MILD

Game - Time to hour, quarter and half hour MILD 1

After you have completed the game that you have chosen, please write a time diary for yourself and ensure that they match the clock. See the websites below to help you to put your clock hands in the correct position. If you can write the time in digital, then please do that too.

E.g.  1. At ten minutes past 8, I get up and have my shower.

 

Complete these and add a description about what you do at that time. Use a wide variety of 'past' and 'to' times! E.g. 1. At ten minutes past 8, I get up and have my shower.
