This week we are learning about time. In particular; days, weeks, months, seasons and years.


Here are some fun songs that help us to learn about the seasons and months.



Below are some photos of us learning how to use calendars and ordering and matching months and seasons.

Week 6 Numeracy – Time


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Numeracy | Posted on 14/11/2014

Students have continued to strengthen their understanding of telling time to the hour, half hour and quarter to/quarter past times by working with a partner and creating a video tutorial or a tutorial on EduCreations. Many students enjoyed working with their partner, sharing the teaching of the concept.

We have also revisited days of the week, months and seasons of the year. We have used many songs to help us remember the order that they go in. Ask your child if they can sing one of the songs to you, or follow the link below. The seasons song is one that Miss Carey made up in class so there isn’t a YouTube clip for it.

Week 5 Numeracy – Time


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Numeracy | Posted on 06/11/2014

This week the Grade 1/2s have been learning about time.

So far this week we have learnt about o’clock and half past times. We have made clocks and talked about how we know if a time is o’clock or half past.

Some of the explanations that students came up with were:

It is o’clock if the long hand is on the 12.
It is o’clock if a digital clock has two zeroes at the end.

It is half past when the long hand is on the 6.
It is half past if the short hand is halfway between two numbers.
The digital clock will say 30 at the end because 30 minutes is half of 60 minutes.

Students have been learning how to match the digital, analogue and written time. You can see our o’clock clock below.

When we were learning about half past times. We learnt that each number on the clock is 5 minutes apart and that is why when the big hand is on the 6 it says the time is something thirty (4:30). We counted by 1s but said every 5th number louder to remember how many minutes past it is.
