We have had a busy week learning about time in Reception/Year 1.
We started by thinking about the months of the year and the order they come in. Very importantly we talked about the month of our birthday and looked at all our birthdays on our class ‘Seasons’ display. We enjoyed singing the ‘Months of the Year’ song found at:
Next, we thought about the days of the week. We learnt a new song, which we all love clapping along to. You can find it at:
After that we sequenced our day, thinking carefully about what happens in the morning, afternoon, evening and at night. The children learnt a new way to order things in ‘chronological order’.
For the last two days we’ve begun to think about shorter units of time; seconds, minutes and hours.
For homework this week it would be great fun to think about:
What you can do in a second? e.g. blink, clap, hop etc
What can you do in a minute?
What might take an hour?
As you can see from the photos We had great fun learning about what we could do in a minute.
How many times can you write your name?
Can you balance on one leg for a minute?
How many star jumps can you do?
How many bricks can you build a tower with?
What number can you write up to starting from 1?
Today we have been reading o’clock times and all the children are confident to read any o’clock time. We even began to think about 1 hour later or earlier.
Next week half past……….
