On the right hand side of this page you will find a time tab to click on. In this page you will find some time resources and a time pack to help teach your child time. Remember, time is a very difficult topic and takes a lot of patience and repetition. Using resources and actual clocks is a great way to help them!
The pack starts off with some simpler activities on telling the time and then gets tricker, looking at 12 and 24 hours as well as the difference between analogue and digital. The last pages are aimed specifically at year 4/5 children and are clearly labelled.
Hopefully this will help with the home learning :)

You will have been given lots of ideas from your year group teachers, but if you would like to find more resources you can use at home try the following links:

Don't forget that there are many ways to engage your child in maths activities around the home and through play:
- Talk about time. For example, get them to work out what time you need to leave the house to get to school on time.
- Cooking. Measure ingredients and set the timer together. Get them to work out how much more food will you need if extra people are coming for dinner.
- Talk about the shape and size of objects. Look online for interesting facts, like tallest and shortest people, or biggest and smallest buildings etc.
- When you are sharing food like pizza or cake, ask your child to help you share it equally between the number of people eating.
- Solve maths problems at home. For example, ask them how many apples to buy at the shop and why, or how long will it take you to get to Gran's house if you go to the library on the way.
- Collect information and create a tally chart, for example to find out the family’s favourite animal or fruit etc.
- Make patterns with objects, colouring pencils, paint or Play-Doh, and build structures with Lego or boxes.
