Maths vocabulary for Reception: Time

When we think of teach time many of us think just in terms of telling the time on a clock or watch. However, much work must precede this as is shown by the vocabulary list for reception (4/5 years old) below.
Start with which day of the week it is, what day will it be tomorrow/ yesterday etc. There are certain times of the day they need to know, such as morning and afternoon and the order that these come in.
At this stage do not worry about telling the time on a clock: some children will find this hard and get very frustrated if it is introduced too soon.
