In numeracy next week, our focus will be telling the time. This area of maths is often quite challenging for children. By the end of Year 4, the children are expected to be able to tell the time on analogue and digital clocks to five minute intervals (including 24 hour format), find later and earlier times and time intervals and solve problems involving time. Regular practise at telling the time makes a significant impact on the children's time telling skills and we try and do it as often as we can throughout the school day. It is really helpful if the children are encouraged to do this at home too and if your child does find telling the time tricky any extra help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks and happy time telling!
