Class 3 have a great 'time' in group sessions!
Telling the time has been the order of the day in Class 3's numeracy sessions since coming back to school after the Easter holidays, and the children have been greatly benefitting from differentiated smaller group sessions with Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Christopherson and Mr. Smith in order to ensure that their knowledge and understanding of this vitally important skill is both consolidated and challenged.
Mr. Smith's group were going over how to show o'clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to as well as the trickier five minute and single minute intervals on an analogue clock face...
... while Mrs. Christopherson and Mrs. Walker's groups were having a go at drawing their own hands on to blank clock faces in order to show different times as well as using numicon shapes in order to further aid them in reading numbers on digital clocks.
Telling the time is a skill which is very easy to support at home. Have you got a nice big analogue clock which can be easily read? Has your child got their own analogue or digital watch which they are able to read? Do they know what time they get up, eat breakfast, go to school, come home, have tea and go to bed? Keep encouraging your child to practise what is not only a key topic in numeracy but also an essential everyday life skill.
