Coming Soon: Time, the Metric System and tables.

monitor1By year 4 children are expected to know that:

1 week = 7 days
1 day = 24 hours
1 hour = 60 minutes
1 minute = 60 seconds

One of next week’s maths worksheets uses this knowledge to answer  some straightforward questions. It also requires a calculator so more detailed information can be found, such as the number of minutes in a week.

As we all know, practice makes perfect, and we are publishing a page next week which gives loads of practice for the 2x, 5x and 10x tables. This is the first stage in introducing the idea of filling in a multiplication grid, multiplying the numbers across and down to fill in the grid.

The Metric system is so much easier than the old Imperial system, but there are still a few problems which come up when converting larger units to smaller units.Look out for this great worksheet on converting metric units.
