Introduction to time

  • Year group: Year 1
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Time
  • Duration: 2 weeks
  • Keystage: KS1
  • Age Range: 5 to 6 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 10 - 11

In this chapter, pupils use the language of time and tell the time using “o’clock” and “half past” throughout the day.

Pupils are introduced to the concept of time and use language such as “earlier”, “later”, “quicker” and “slower”. As they begin to sequence events in chronological order, especially in relation to their daily routines in the classroom, pupils develop the language used to include “before”, “after”, “next”, “first”, “today”, “tomorrow” and “yesterday”.

Through both planned and spontaneous learning opportunities over an extended period, pupils learn to tell time to the hour and half past the hour. Ideally, this is done at home, as well as in the classroom, as frequent practice and reinforcement is vital in supporting pupils as they get to grips with the concept.

Later, pupils start to recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week and months of the year.

Introduction to time

Mathematical discussion is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Talk Tasks are a brilliant way of enabling pupils to develop their mathematical language, thinking, understanding and confidence.

This activity explores the concept of time.

• Talk tasks are best completed in mixed attainment pairs, with pupils taking turns to listen and construct arguments
• Emphasis is on discussion rather than the solution, encouraging pupils to use key language and talk in full sentences
• Ask pupils to prove their answers in a variety of ways, using the CPA approach to support mathematical understanding and number sense
