Maths

This week's Maths is all about...

Time! 

We sing the days of the week song every morning. It's important to know the days of the week.

 I wonder if I said a day would you know which day came next? 

Tuesday...

Thursday...

Saturday...

Sunday...

Did you get them right? 

Reception: Mental Maths

Every day sing the days of the week song. Then, choose a day and say which day comes next.

Monday: It is also important to know the months of the year. Listen and then sing along to the video below!

Tuesday: Practise counting forwards and backwards up to 20.  If you have number cards from 1 - 20 can you put them in the correct order?  Use your knowledge of adding one more to help. 

Wednesday: Get out your number cards - turn them over so you cannot see the numbers. Turn two over - which is the biggest? which is the smallest? Quick turn them back over again and choose two more! Now which one is the biggest? Which number is the smallest? Repeat! 

Thursday: Listen to the months of the year song again. Have you cracked it? 

Friday: It's 'No Tech Friday' today and 'World Book Day' so let's get out some books and get counting! How many capital 'i's can you find? How many 'and' words are there on one page? Choose another word to find! Is there something in the pictures you could count? How many pages are there in your book? Have they got page numbers printed on them? Pick a page, what page number will come next? Which page number will come before. (Use your adding on one more or subtracting one less knowledge to help you work it out!

How to Tell the Time

Have a go at making your own clock face. You could use your number cards for the numbers and think of two objects that could be the hands. Remember one needs to be the big hand so it needs to be the longest and one needs to be the short hand so it needs to be the shortest. You could write your own numbers on paper or card and practise your number formation as you go. I have put a document in that you could print out instead if you prefer. Once your clock is made keep it for this week's work. Can you begin to tell the time using it? Show me 7 o'clock. 5 o'clock. don't forget to send me your photos!

Wednesday: 

Let's work through this video together and practise telling the time to the hour.

Now have a go on your own. Look at the document below and create the labelled times. You could print out the sheet and draw the clock hands on, you could draw your own clock faces and draw on the hands, you could make your own clock face or use the one you made yesterday and photograph the different times. Which ever way you choose make sure you send me in your work, I'd love to see how you got on. smiley

Thursday:

This session is a short one so once you have completed today's mental maths warm up, let's get active! 

How many of the following can you do in a minute? One box is empty - can you think of your own idea?

Keep your eye on the time from now on! Can you tell your adult when it is on the hour?

Oh yeah! O'clock!

Wednesday:

Time Problem Solving. Click here to find an online clock. Can you put the hands into the correct positions by answering the questions below. (If you would rather not use the online clock - use the clock you have made this week and/or draw your own.

Thursday:

This session is a short one so once you have completed today's mental maths warm up, let's play a game! 

You can print out the game board below, make your own or screen grab it on your ipad and carefully use it as the game board. 

Can you tell the time?

Keep your eye on the time from now on! Can you tell your adult when it is on the hour and when it is half past the hour?

 

If your child has mastered telling the time to the hour and half past the hour you may want to begin to introduce quarter past and quarter to the hour. (Please only move on if your child is very secure in o'clock and half past and do not worry if they're not quite ready yet smiley).

Here is an online game - choose the correct clock (O'Clock, Half Past, Quarter to and Quarter Past)
