For the next two weeks, in Maths, you can move away from measure (if you feel your child is ready) and on to time. There is a useful video below which will be a good starting point. There are lots more on YouTube too. Beneath that, there's a variety of different worksheets for telling the time. Before doing any of those, it's a good idea to help your child with the time, practically. Here are some ideas:


- Make a clock from a paper plate That's a video with an example, it needn't be that complicated! You could use string if you haven't got split pins.

- Take an analogue clock down from the wall and let your child see how the hands move around by turning the wheel at the back. 

- Create a big clock in the garden with chalk. Use two long pieces of card (make sure one is bigger than the other) to represent the hands. 


You can then use any of the above to say a time (start with O' clock, then half past, quarter past, quarter to for now) and your child can create that time on their clock. Talk about the time with your child during each stage of the day too. It's good for them to understand that lunchtime is usually around 12 O' clock, dinner at 6 O' clock etc. Once your child is confident with the above, they could move onto the worksheets. They're in order of difficulty, so start with the top one and work down.
