# Maths Year 5/6 Summer Measures, Shape, Data

Each unit has everything you need to teach a set of related skills and concepts.

## It’s time!(suggested as 2 days)

### Planning and Activities

Day 1
Use and interpret the timetable for the North Yorkshire Steam Railway. Practise writing 24-hour times as 12-hour times. Calculate time intervals and solve reasoning problems.
Group Activities:
Y5/Y6 -- Plan itineraries using a railway timetable.

Day 2
Give fictitious train delay announcements, e.g. The 14:48 to Birmingham New Street is running approximately 37 minutes late as a result of sheep on the line near Worcester. Model counting on using a number line to find the new departure time. Repeat for different delay scenarios.
Group Activities:
Use the ‘Annoying clock’ in-depth problem-solving investigation below as today’s group activity.
Or, use these activities:
Y5 -- Use counting on using a number line as a strategy for adding a time duration to a start time.
Y6 -- Game adding hours and minutes, aiming to finish as close as possible to midnight.

### You Will Need

• ‘North Yorkshire Steam Railway timetable’ (see resources)
• Internet access
• Whiteboards and pens
• A3 paper
• 1–6 dice

### Short Mental Workouts

Day 1
Read the 24-hour clock

Day 2
Units of time

### Worksheets

Day 1
Y5: Interpret a fictional timetable, including reading times and calculating durations.
Y6: Interpret a fictional timetable, including calculating elapsed times.

Day 2
Y5/Y6: Given start times and an elapsed time, find journey end times.

### Mastery: Reasoning and Problem-Solving

Y5

• True or false?
13:40 is twenty to two in the afternoon.
Midnight is 00:00.
Midday is 12:00 on the 24- hour clock.
19:15 is quarter past 7 in the morning.
1 hour after 15:00 is six o’clock pm.
• Calculate how long it is between:
13:40 and five to 5 in the afternoon.
Quarter to midday and 17:23.
Five past midnight and ten to midday.
• If each bus is 40 minutes late, write its new arrival time.
(i) Number 31 bus due at 12:55.
(ii) Number 22 bus due at 13:04.
(iii) Number 15 bus due at 14:44.
• The number 4A bus arrived 27 minutes late at 00:14. What time was it due?

Y6

This unit has no separate problem-solving activities for Y6.

In-depth investigation: Annoying clock
Children apply their knowledge of time to solve a multi-step problem involving dates and organised reasoning.

### Extra Support
