Maths – Measurement- Time

Days of the week song – sing/listen to daily



Reception – Watch power point – Talk with your adult about what you do before or after school. What you do soon after you wake up. Next draw 2 columns in your exercise book, label one side day time, and one side night time. Can you put the events/activities in the corresponding column? Some might go in both. You might want to draw them. EXT – Can you add any other activities that are not on the power point? (I’ve highlighted language you might want to familiarise your child with, also you might like to use: later, now, after, next)







Reception – Can you write the order of your day today using positional language? Here is my (Mrs Wiltshire’s) example: Today after my breakfast I am going to school. Before that I will get dressed and brush my teeth. Now that I am at school I am going to order a hot dinner for lunchtime. After lunch I will do some exercise outside. Later when I get home I will cook spaghetti Bolognese. At the end of my day I will look forward to bedtime! Please scribe for your child if needed.


Year 1 – As independently as possible, write the days of the week then please answer following questions. Q1, What day is it today? Q2, What day was it yesterday? Q3, What day will it be tomorrow?



Reception – Adult please use following language to talk about time with your child: second(s), minute(s) and hour(s). Now for some challenges (link to PE), you will need some form of timer (watch, clock, mobile phone timer, sand timer).

Challenge 1 – Arms stretched out to the sides, how many big circles can you do 15 seconds?

Challenge 2 – How many neck rolls can you do in 10 seconds?

Challenge 3 – Stand up straight, deep breath, can you touch your toes for 12 seconds?

Challenge 4 – How long does it take to do 20 star jumps?

Challenge 5 – How long does it take to throw 13 teddies into a hoop?

Challenge 6 – How long does it take you to run around a safe outside space?

Please do adapt if necessary. Children to record their answers using correct terminology … ‘It took me 1 minute and 3 seconds to run outside.’


Year 1 – Months of the year (link to science) – Listen to/sing song -

Discuss with your child, that there are 12 months in a year, you might have months that are extra special to you and your family (birthdays, weddings etc), discuss these too. You might want to talk about which months fall into which season and the weather associated with it. Watch power point and read aloud months of year, encourage your child to join in. Next see how many they can write from memory. Again tell your child that months of the year start with a capital letter.



Reception – Remind your child of yesterday’s last 3 challenges. Which one did they complete in the fastest time? Which one were they slowest at? EXT If you had 2 minutes to complete those challenges, do you think you would get a higher or lower score? Why?


Year 1 – Recap yesterday’s learning, sing song, then have another go at writing the months of the year.



Reception – Recap and consolidate any of this week’s learning. Sing/listen to

Practise number formation, how far can you write upto? EXT – time yourself doing an activity this weekend, baking a cake? Cleaning out your hamster? Having a bath, the list is endless!
