This half term as well as ongoing calculation and problem solving work we will be learning about time! This can be quite tricky to get our heads around and it would be fantastic if you could all practise at home. Whenever you see a clock, ask yourself what the time is on both analogue and digital clocks.
There are some links below to lots of games to help you. The more you do, the better you will get. Remember that telling the time is a really important life skill.
Down in the woodland area of our school today, we investigated the height of trees. To do this, we used a marker to find perspective. Then we measured what 10% of this length was and multiplied it by 10.
We also measured the circumference of a tree (estimating beforehand!), multiplied this number by 4 and then divided it by 100 to find the tree's age.
This was a practical application of the measurement and calculation we have been learning about in our maths lessons recently.
