Activity 1 – Time Devices at Home.

Focus – I can talk about why time is important in our lives.

Resources – pencil and paper.

Look around the House and write, draw or take a photo where you see time devices at home, e.g. alarm clock, cooker timer. Photographs can be emailed to gw08officecastle@ea.dumgal.sch.uk to be added to this webpage.

Talk together about how the devices are used.

 

 

Activity 2 – Things that Happen at Home.

Focus – I can measure how long it will take me to do something using non-standard units and am beginning to have a sense of how long a second, minute or hour lasts.

Resources – pencil and paper.

On a piece of paper write three headings Past, Present and Future.
Draw something you have done, something you are doing right now, and something you think you will do soon,  under the headings.

 

 

Activity 3 – Collecting Dates.

Focus – I can talk about days, months and seasons and can relate this to how you are shown on different calendars.

Work with family and friends to collect some key dates, e.g. Dad’s birthday is 5th March, we go on holiday on 10th July. Talk together about events throughout the year.

 

 

Activity 4 – How Long Does it Take?

Focus – I can measure how long it will take me to do something using non-standard units and am beginning to have a sense of how long a second, minute or hour lasts.

Resources – pencil and paper.

Think of things you or friends do at home that you estimate take about a second, a minute or an hour. Draw up a table with headings for Second, Minute and Hour and write your ideas in the different columns.

 

 

Activity 5 – One-minute Talk.

Focus – I can measure how long it will take me to do something using non-standard units and am beginning to have a sense of how long a second, minute or hour lasts.

Resources – watch or clock to measure a minute.

Work with a partner. Talk about something (e.g. a favourite holiday, all about me, my pet) that you think will take about one minute to read out. Stop when you think you have been talking for a minute.  How close to a minute did it take?

 

 

Activity 6 – Time Challenge.

Focus – I can estimate what I can do in different lengths of time and can check my estimates using a variety of different timers and units of time.

Resources – pencil and paper.

Write down five things you do at home in the evening, e.g. watch TV, eat, brush teeth. Put these in order, according to how long you spend on each activity.

 

 

Activity 7 – What Time Does my Clock Say?
