This in-depth maths investigation is an open-ended problem solving activity for Year 1 children. It can be used to support teaching towards the objectives: Read analogue time to hour and 1/2 hour; sequence events.
In-depth Investigation: My New Watch
Children use analogue clocks to try out different o’clock and half past times. They find all the possible different o’clock and half past times between midnight and midday!
This investigation will develop maths meta-skills, support open-ended questioning and logical reasoning, and enable children to learn to think mathematically and articulate mathematical ideas.
This problem-solving investigation is part of our Year 1 Money and Time block. Each Hamilton maths block contains a complete set of planning and resources to teach a term’s worth of objectives for one of the National Curriculum for England’s maths areas.
