In Maths this term the children will be learning about measure. 

 Time - We will be learning to tell and read the time on the hour and half past, quarter past and quarter to. The children will play lots of games to explore this concept. Please encourage your children to practice telling the time at home - what time do they need to get ready for school? When is it dinner time? What time will it be in 15 minutes? 

 

Capacity , Volume and Temperature - Children will learn to measure in ml and l and measure the temperature in degrees. Children will compare capacity and temperature using <  > =  ( less than, more than and equal to signs) . 

To support this learning , you could talk about the temperature of the weather , try to some cooking together and use the langauge for measures in your discussions. 

Number and place value - Children will be learning to double and half, subtracting and creating numbers in different ways. 

 

Throughout each of the topics children will have the opportunity to reason through open questions and word problems and to apply their ideas to real life contexts - the more discussion you have with your children at home, the easier this will become!

 

Use Bar Logik to practice your problem solving skills.
