Further converting between units of time

  • Year group: Year 5
  • Term: Summer
  • Topic: Time
  • Duration: 1 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 9 to 10 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 10

In this chapter, pupils convert from smaller to larger units of time (eg, from minutes to hours).

Pupils use their knowledge of place value, multiplication and division to convert between standard units. They use all four operations in problems involving time, including conversions (eg, days to weeks, expressing the answer as weeks and days). At this stage, the numbers chosen should minimise the need for rounding.

Further converting  between units of 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 converting between units 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

Further converting  between units of time

Deepening pupils’ understanding of key mathematical ideas is a core element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

Our Key Constructs highlight the essential mathematical concepts all pupils are expected to grasp within each year group, with accompanying guidance for assessing pupil progress.

Our Key Constructs are closely aligned to the National Curriculum’s objectives. We know these can be tricky to evidence, so we’ve included an example task for each concept, as well as ideas to support slower-graspers and depth tasks to challenge higher-attaining pupils.

• Pupils should work through the tasks independently
• Teachers should incorporate the CPA approach to support pupils’ learning
• Opportunities for depth and scaffolding are built into each task

Measure Treasure Hunt

Put up these problems around the room. Pupils can work independently, in pairs or groups to follow the trail. This powerpoint includes the sheets for pupils, the challenge cards and the answers. I used this with my year 6 class but it would also be suitable for years 4 and 5. I apologise for the mistakes in this, the first time that I posted this. I have now corrected them.

KS2 Units of Time

Help your students to understand different units of time with this worksheet that asks them to fill in the blanks with the correct unit of time. The extended word problems will challenge the students to convert a unit of time to hours, days, or weeks etc. They can colour it and may use it as a Maths displays.
