Telling the Time Book 1 (KS1 Maths, Ages 5-6) by Schofield & Sims
Telling the time is a complex skill that many children struggle to grasp. Schofield & Sims Telling the Time breaks this difficult topic down into a sequence of manageable ideas that young learners can approach at their own pace. Beginning with child-friendly explanations of times of day and units of time, it moves on to introduce telling the time on an analogue clock, before progressing to cover a wide range of related concepts, including different ways of measuring and representing time, time expressions and everyday time problems. Each activity book provides large, clear clock faces for easy counting and colour-coded hands to aid recognition of hours and minutes. 'Learn' panels help to explain time-telling in simple steps, while regular 'Did you know?' boxes provide fun general-knowledge facts to enrich learning. Answers to all the practice questions are included at the back of the book for easy marking.Telling the Time Book 1 supports the National Curriculum requirements for Year 1 and covers the following topic areas: times of day (morning, noon, afternoon, evening); basic units of time; comparing and sequencing events in chronological order (earlier/later; first/next; yesterday/tomorrow); telling the time to the hour, half hour and quarter hour; the days of the week and months of the year; calendars; and seasons.
