This week in Maths, we will be looking at time.
The children are going to be learning how to tell the time to the hour.
They first need to be able to sequence events in chronological order. This could be things such as:
- How to brush your teeth,
- How to make a sandwich
There are examples of activities where the children have to cut and stick the events into the correct order. You could always come up with your own together.
The children are to make their own clock using the template available. If you have a paper plate, you could stick the numbers around the paper plate. If not, then stick it to card or another piece of paper to make it sturdier. You will also need a split pin to hold the hands together.
All the children need to do is get used to moving the hands around the clock.
The big hand points to the minutes and the small hand points to the hour.
There are work sheets to work through over the week.
In Maths this week we will be looking at different measures - length and height. We will spend the first half of the week on length and the second half of the week on height. The children do not need to be able to measure the object with a ruler, they need to use non-standard measures. We use Maths resources for this but you could use anything around the house as long as you keep it the same for every item you measure. You could use lego or anything else you have around the house.
This week in Maths, we will be looking at partitioning numbers up to 10. We have been doing this using different Maths resources. You could do this at home by using anything that you can have around the house such as pencils, toys etc.
The number at the top of the part part whole is the number that you make using the resources. So if there is the number 5 at the top, then you would get 5 things. You then need to see how many ways you can make the number 5 by separating the objects into 2 piles.
Later in the week, we will be looking at number bonds to 10. This is similar to partitioning the number 5.
You need to find the different ways of making the number 10 using different resources and then writing them down.
