Time

Activity 1 – Time All Around

Focus – I can talk about how people plan their lives using times and dates.

Resources – newspapers, magazines, internet, pencil and paper.

Find examples in the media (e.g. newspapers, magazines, TV, internet) or around the home of time devices and how/where they are used. Record (draw, write, cut out, print) the examples and sort them into groups using your  own sorting criteria. Back in class children compare collections and sorting criteria.

 

Activity 2 – Events Around the World

Focus – I can talk about how people plan their lives using times and dates.

Resources – internet, tv shedules.

Look at TV schedules which show live sporting events (e.g. Formula One Grand Prix races, tennis tournaments, rugby matches) which are taking place elsewhere in the world. Note down the time the programme is being shown in the UK and the country where the event is taking place.  Can you then work out the time difference?

 

 

Activity 3 – How Long Does it take?

Focus – I can estimate and then measure how long tasks or events will take and what I can achieve in a given time period.

Resources – pencil and paper.

Along with other family members or friends estimate or measure how long it takes you to do a particular activity (e.g. brush your teeth, walk the dog, eat dinner, etc.). Record this for four days. Who spent most time brushing their teeth?

 

 

Activity 4 – Exercise at Home

Focus  -I can estimate and then measure how long tasks or events will take and what I can achieve in a given time period.

Resources – timer

Create a 10 minute exercise programme which you can do at home. The programme should include short rest times.

 

 

Activity 5 – Puzzle Sheet

 

Focus – I can tell any time on 12 hour digital and analogue clocks.

Resources – pencil and paper.

Create a puzzle sheet for a friend or family member to do. In one column write some digital times (e.g. 3:15). In a second column write the same time but using words to describe the analogue time (e.g. quarter past 3), writing these in a different order. Swap puzzle sheets and find the matching times.

 

 

Activity 6 – 24 Hour Time at Home

Focus  -I can tell the time on 24 hour digital clocks, relating this to 12 hour times.
