Over the last two weeks Year 2 have been learning about time in maths. We have worked very hard to tell the time on an analogue clock as well as on a digital clock.
We began last week by just looking at o’clock and half past on the analogue clock and some of us very quickly moved on to the digital clock.
Next we looked at quarter past before moving onto quarter to. Quarter to was a bit trickier when it came to the digital clock as we had to remember to change the hour e.g. quarter to 1 is 12:45 on the digital clock.
Nevertheless we all did a fantastic job and Mrs Sandoe was very impressed so we all got a merit to celebrate our progress.

This week we have been learning more about solving time word problems. We solved a range of problems, some of which involved us counting on and back in hours and for some of us in half hour intervals.
Below are some games that you can play to practise more time.
On Wednesday we had an assembly with a guest speaker who spoke to us about electrical devices such as laptops, computers, play stations, I pads, etc. The guest speaker asked us what games we enjoyed playing on our computers before talking to us about how we can stay safe on these. For example when playing on Mushy Monsters to not talk to ‘monsters’ we don’t know.
