When learning about time most people think about reading clock faces, but there is much more than this with young children. Getting a clear concept of amount of time is important for young children. In other words, what is it realistic to be able to done in one second, one minute or one hour? This page challenges children to complete a number of tasks in one minute, such as how tall a tower can be built using blocks/lego etc.
An important part of this is to make sure that they make an estimate/guess before starting which shows how realistic they are about time. This resource can be found in our Year 2 measurement section.
