Counting in 1/2s and 1/4s; finding fractions of amounts - Teaching Presentation - Year 2

(0)
This presentation provides three days of teaching that cover the objectives: Count on in fraction steps. Find 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 and 3/4 of amounts using sharing and number facts It includes starter activities, whole class teaching, group activities, practice sheets and mastery questions. It can be used on a variety of interactive whiteboards. Day 1 Teaching Use folded circles (1/2s) and rectangles (1/4s) as a visual aid for counting in fraction steps. Count on in 1/2s to 10; count on in 1/4s to 5. Each child shows the relevant fractions as they count. Remind children that 2/4 is the same as 1/2. Use a TA to model writing halves and quarters on a 0 to 5 number line. Day 2 Teaching Use 12 bananas (real or use an image) as an amount to model sharing into 1/2, 1/4 and then to find 3/4. Look how the fraction tells us what to do with the amount: 3/4. The 4 tells us to share the whole amount between four; the 3 tells us that we want to know what is in three of those groups. Repeat to share 12 and 18 into thirds. Day 3 Teaching Show a recipe. Demonstrate how to find half of each of the amounts to make half the number of cakes. Demonstrate how to find 1/3 of amounts. Then demonstrate to find 1/4 by halving and halving again. This teaching is part of Hamilton’s Year 2 Number, Fractions and Money block.

Teaching Presentation: Calculate time intervals; 24 hour clock (Year 4 Measures and Data)

(0)
This presentation provides three days of teaching that cover the objective: Tell time and calculate time intervals; 24 hour clock It includes starter activities, whole class teaching, group activities, practice sheets and mastery questions. It can be used on a variety of interactive whiteboards. Day 1 Teaching Use ITP Tell the time and show several times. Match digital to analogue times and ensure children understand ‘to’ as well as ‘past’ the hour times. Introduce 24-hour clock, explaining that for pm times we add 12 hours. Day 2 Teaching Ask why we use a 24-hour clock. Say it helps to differentiate between am and pm times. Explain that we don’t say 13 o’clock but 13 hundred hours and 16:45 as sixteen forty-five. Practise saying different 24-hour times by writing them on the board and asking children to read them out. Write 24-hour times in a 2 × 3 grid and ask children to convert them to 12-hour am/pm times in their own grids. Day 3 Teaching Show a 24-hour train timetable (see resources). Ask how we know if the times are am/pm? Why do train timetables use 24-hour time? Establish that it helps travellers make sure they turn up at the right time of day! Use a train timetable to calculate intervals. This teaching is part of Hamilton’s Year 4 Measures and Data block.

Day 2 Teaching Show a stick made of unequal numbers of red and blue cubes. Establish the ratio between the two colours and use this to create different length sticks with the colours in the same ratio. Use notation to describe ratio, e.g. 2 red for every 1 blue, 2:1. Ask children to say what fraction of a stick of cubes is a particular colour. Day 3 Teaching Write ‘swimming’ and ‘cycling’ on large cards. Ask 10 children to stand by their favourite. What fraction prefer swimming? What is this as a percentage? Say that we can use fractions or percentages to describe a proportion. Draw a bar model diagram to represent this.
