P6 Numeracy 20th January

12-hour and 24-hour clock Lesson 1

Practise converting from 12-hr clock to 24-hr clock

Warm-up activity

This week we are revising the four rules of number - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

For today's warm-up, we are practising long multiplication.  Download the "Long multiplication warm-up challenge 20-1-21" and complete the questions to the best of your ability.  Use the Multiplication Tables Factsheet to help you if required.


If you have forgotten how to do long multiplication, look back at last Friday's Maths lesson and watch Mrs Bell's video where she explains how to complete a long multiplication question.

Main activity

Today we are going to continue with our work on time and revise telling the time using 12-hour and 24-hour clock.  Watch today's video to find out what to do.


In the video, Mrs Bell uses a PowerPoint called "24-hr clock 20-1-21".  Download the PowerPoint once you've finished watching the video and have a go at answering the questions by yourself.  The "12-hr and 24-hr clock poster" will help you.


Then log in to EducationCity and use the Time Bandit Learn Screen to revise the key differences between 12-hour and 24-hour clock. 



For today's written activity, choose your level and download your task.  Keep the "12-hr and 24-hr clock poster" in front of you while you complete your work and you might find it useful to use the "Time" topic tool in EducationCity as well.

Reasoning challenge

Today's reasoning challenges are all about addition.  Can you work out the missing digits in each calculation?
