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 practice 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!
Today we went do to the woods to investigate two questions: 'What is the height of a tree?' and 'How old is a tree?'
To calculate the height of a tree we demarcated 10% of the tree's eight and then multiplied this total by 10.
To calculate the age of a tree we measured the tree up to 1.5m from the ground. We then measured its circumference and then multiplied this figure by 4. Finally, we divided this amount by 10.
The oldest tree we found on our grounds was 53 years old and tallest tree we found was 14 metres high.
