Week Beginning 11th January 2021

Hello and welcome lovely Aslans! This week in maths we are learning about time. 

Monday 11th January

If you'd like to share your work today, please click here.

To warm up your brains and your bodies we are first of all going to do a Supermovers video - I know how amazing you are at this in class so I'd like you to be just as amazing at home! Click on the link below to take you to the video.

L/O:To be able to tell the time using an analogue clock

I can remember to:

Make each time using my clock.

Show the hour hand showing which hour it is at, has just moved past or is nearly at.

Show the minute hand showing how many minutes past the hour or how many minutes until the next hour.

Check that my clock shows the time it is supposed to.

Write down the times using the vocabulary o'clock, half past, quarter/minutes past and quarter/minutes to.

 

First of all watch this video (by the amazing Miss Morecroft) showing you how to make your own clock at home.

Now have a look at the video below which models some of the tasks set out for you today.

Tasks

Please select the level that is the right challenge for you. Don't worry if you're not able to print out the clocks, you can make the time on your own clock and write out the time on some paper.

Work Sharing

A big well done to these Whizzy Workers who have sent in their work from Monday's lesson. What a brilliant hand drawn clock by ED!

Tuesday 12th January 

To warm yourselves up today, you can have a go at the Supermovers telling the time song. Click here.

 

If you'd like to share any work from today's lesson please click here.

 

LO: To understand how to use am and pm correctly

I can remember to

Sort activities into morning (am) and afternoon (pm) 

Write the digital time using am or pm

Put am and pm times in the correct order 

 

First of all, please watch the video explaining am and pm and digital times. 

Here is an extra video that explains using digital time and am/pm.

Tasks

 

One of your tasks today is to write down some of the activities that take place in your day just as we did in the video for Little Mouse.   You could record when you wake up, brush your teeth, eat your lunch and go for a walk for example.  For each of these activities, make the time on your analogue clock and also write the digital time, remembering to write whether it is am (morning) or pm (afternoon or evening).  

There are also the tasks below for you to select from.

Work sharing

Thank you to these Whizzy Workers for sharing their work from today. We're very impressed, well done!

Wednesday 13th January
To warm up today we're going to revise counting in 5s. You're really good at these I know and we will be using them in the main lesson today. Click here to join the Supermovers! 
If you'd like to ask any questions or share your work with your teachers and classmates please click here to complete the form.

L/O To understand minutes and hours 

I can remember to:

Use my clock to covert between hours and minutes 

Use my knowledge of counting in 5s

Use my clock to find earlier and later times

 

First of all, please watch the video which models some of the tasks for today.

Tasks

Additional Activities

You could time yourself doing different activities and convert the timings between hours and minutes.  For example if it takes 1 hour 10 minutes for you to cook and eat tea, how many minutes is this?  If you watch a television programme for 30 minutes, how would you show that in hours? 

Matching Cards

Work sharing

Aslans, I am so impressed with all this work you are doing at home. What Whizzy Workers you are! Well done and thank you for sharing - it's so good to see it!

 

Thursday 14th January
If you'd like to share your work from today, please click here. 
To warm up today we're going to join Cyril the Swan to help us revise our 4 times table. Click here for the link and get your bodies moving and brains maths ready!

LO To find durations of time on an analogue clock

I can remember to:

Use my clock to work out how much time has passed for an activity
Use my knowledge of counting in 5s
Use my clock to work out the start and/or end times of activities

 

Today we are learning about durations of time.  a A duration is the amount of time something takes.  First of all, watch the video.  Make sure you have a piece of paper or a whiteboard and pen ready, and also your clock if you have one, to work through the examples with me. 

The tasks today are slightly different.  There is a main task which you can all try. There's also a mild task if you need something less challenging and a hot task for more of a challenge.

Y3 Lesson 4 Durations of Time

Additional Activities

Just like we did Little Mouse and Elephant, you could note down the start and end times of different activities during your day and work out the duration of time for each activity.  The times we've looked at today have mostly been within the same hour so try to choose short activities, or for more of a challenge you could choose longer activities that go past the next hour.

Work sharing

Here's some more brilliant work from some Whizzy Workers. Well done!

Friday 15th January

Hello and welcome to Fun Friday Maths! We're doing things slightly differently today.  There are two different tasks for you to have a go at today, one from Miss Travis and one from Miss Kendall.

 

Digit Cards with Miss Travis

LO To make different numbers using digit cards

I can remember to 

find odd numbers (ending in 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9)

find even numbers (ending in 0, 2, 4, 6, 8)

use my knowledge of place value to find 10/100/1000 more or less than a number

use my knowledge of place value to order a set of numbers

 

First of all, please watch this video which demonstrates how to make your own digit cards.  You could also use playing cards or UNO cards instead.

Now watch this video which demonstrates some of the ways you can use your digit cards.

Click on the document below for some further ideas of how you can use your digit cards. You could use them together with someone in your household or you could get your favourite teddy or toy to join in!  You might have your own ideas of how to use the digit cards too.  Don't forget to upload any work you do by clicking here - we'd love to see what you get up to!

Sorting with Miss Kendall

L/O: To order intervals of time from shortest to longest.

You've got two activities for you to have a go at today Year 3 and 4! 

Activity two allows you to have lots of discussion around lengths of time watch the video to find out more.
