P6 Numeracy 14th January

Mental Maths warm-up

Today's warm-up is all about our multiplication tables.


Download the "Multiplication grids warm-up challenge" and use your knowledge of your multiplication tables to complete these mini grids.  Try to do the calculations in your head but, if there are any questions which you can't work out, use the "Multiplication Tables Factsheet" to help you.  And don't forget to keep practising your tables at home!

Analogue and digital time Lesson 2

We can use a.m. or p.m. to show whether something happens before or after midday.

Main activity

Today we are continuing with our work on time.  Watch today's video to see what we are up to today!


Revision - telling the time

Begin by practising telling the time on analogue and digital clocks.  Use the "Telling the time in 5-min intervals" PowerPoint to revise this important life skill. 


Then log-in to EducationCity  Use the "Time" topic tool to practise converting between analogue and digital times (see yesterday's video if you've forgotten how to use this topic tool).

Stay in EducationCity and use the "Little Book of Time" Learn Screen to revise your time facts.








Today's learning - using a.m. and p.m.

In P5 we started to learn about a.m. and p.m. times on the 12-hour clock.  Watch today's video for a reminder.


Important facts

  • There are 24 hours in one day, but the day can be measured by splitting it into two halves.
  • The first 12 hours of the day - from midnight to one minute before midday - are called a.m.
  • The next twelve hours - from midday to one minute before midnight - are called p.m.


For your main activity, we are going to use a.m. or p.m. to say whether things happen before or after midday. Download the activity for your group and do your best to complete it.  The answers can also be downloaded.


For today's reasoning challenge, we are looking at place value.  Don't forget to explain your thinking to an adult at home!
