Maths Blog - May 2021

Year 3 have been working on their Time unit in Power Maths.

Here are some of the children's thoughts about their learning.

Jack: Time is tricky - counting using seconds was so different when we used a stopwatch! It was made easier by looking at the clock on the wall and talking about it.

Tayla-Mai: I kept mixing up the hands on the clock.

Shyanne: I hadn't realised before there are 60 minutes in an hour.

Maisey-Jane: Time is easy when you know your 5 times tables because I know I can see the minute hand is on the four, so it is 4x5. That would be 20 minutes past the hour. 

Keylee: I like using the Power Maths Books because the pictures help me and it starts easy but gets harder. I like to try on my own first.
