This week, the children have demonstrated commitment towards learning to tell the time. Telling the time is a difficult concept for many children to grasp and so it is important that they are given as much experience as possible at telling the time. We have been using the clock through the day and telling the time together.
If you are looking for ways of supporting your child this week at home, encouraging them to tell the time across the weekend using an analogue clock would be invaluable. Some children are ready to move onto thinking about what the digital clock would look like and so this could be a next step. For example; ‘I know that 20 minutes to four is 3:40 on the digital clock. This is tricky and takes ‘time’ to conquer fully!
In other news, a huge well done to Hippo class for winning the Golden dustpan award in assembly today as well as being the class with the highest attendance in KS2. Keep up the good work.
Have a lovely weekend telling the time!
