Analogue and digital time

  • Year group: Year 3
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Time
  • Duration: 2.5 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 7 to 8 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 4b - 6

In this chapter, pupils read time to the nearest minute and record time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours.

Pupils use and record times on both analogue and digital clocks. They learn to tell and write the time from analogue, 12- and 24-hour digital clocks, using vocabulary such as “o’clock”, “am”, “pm”, “morning”, “afternoon”, “noon” and “midnight”.

Building on work from the previous chapter, pupils also know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year. As before, this understanding will help them to convert between units of time in later chapters.

Given start and finish times of events or tasks, pupils calculate and compare their duration by applying their addition and subtraction skills.

White Rose Maths

Reasoning - Problem Solving Questions - 30th March

Today's problems are ones that require children to think carefully about what they have to do. There are two problems for KS1 and two for KS2.

In KS1 problem children have to use information about two plates of food to work out the cost of a fried egg. They then have to work out time problems.

At KS2 children potentially need to use all four operations and the problems can be solved using bar modelling. The first one is similar to the train and football one from last week, except the picture doesn't make the approach as obvious.

Every day in March the White Rose Maths Hub is aiming to put out a question of the day.

Tweet us @WRMathsHub a picture of your children's answers for a chance to win a prize.

Mathematics Mastery

Analogue and digital 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 analogue and digital 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

Like what you see? Mathematics Mastery is a professional development programme for teachers with a mission to transform mathematics education in the UK.

This task is just a taster of the complete classroom resources we offer. We also provide in-depth development training, online CPD, specialist support and assessment tools.

We believe all elements of our programme are vital in creating lasting change – enabling every child to enjoy and succeed in mathematics.

Analogue and digital time

Select ‘View more’ for an accompanying video.

Enabling teachers to continuously develop their practice is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery Programme.

This CPD video provides step-by-step guidance on analogue and digital time.

Our videos aim to:

• Model teaching tips, techniques and clarify how to make connections between concrete, pictorial and abstract representations
• Support the teaching of different methods and concepts, rather than focusing on one method only
• Enhance subject knowledge and support non-specialists

Shapes, co-ordinates, symmetry, speed, line graphs, pictograms, bar graphs, perimeter, area, percentages, tally, problem solving, survey, money, budget and time.

Enjoy!!

Telling the time 5 mins

A set of three worksheets i have devised about telling the time to 5 minute intervals. Aimed at Y3 originally. First sheet (HA) is 9 clock faces where the children have to write the time in digital and wirte ...minutes past..... and 3 clock faces at the bottom to draw on the given time. The second sheet shows a clockface where the children need to count in 5s around the clock and then tell the time in digital to the 5 mins. The last sheet (LA) is telling the time the hour, half and quarter. Hope they are of help to someone! :)

Analogue Time Domino Activity

Two activities I made for Y2 children. The analogue to analogue dominoes for the lower ability children to include o'clock, half past and quarter past times. The 2nd activity for my more able children making matching analogue to digital times. The children write a digital time to match the hands they have drawn on the clock. This one to include quarter to times. Once completed the children can cut out the dominoes and play with their own game

Maths Y3 Spring Teaching Sequence M4

Time, reading digital and analogue clocks (minutes past and to) (three days).

Children revise the equivalent digital and analogue ways of recording times between the hour and half past the hour (minutes past), and are then introduced to how to describe analogue times as minutes to the next hour. They practise finding the equivalent digital and analogue times. Intervals are found between times, but not bridging the hour at this point. Chn work together to think of times 20 minutes, then 1¼ hours apart.
