Teaching and Group Activities for Understanding
Day 1 Teaching
Demonstrate how to tell the o’clock time on a large geared analogue clock. Move the minute hand. Show how the big hand goes round the clock once every hour. Play ‘What’s the Time, Mr Wolf?’ online. Then give a small clock to each pair of children and ask for o’clock times.
-- Play a game of ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf’ on boards or outside.
Day 2 Teaching
Draw a blank timeline on the Interactive Whiteboard. Discuss what has happened and is going to happen today. Label on the timeline showing the time and event (keep to o’clock times). Afterwards, ask questions about the timeline.
Use the in-depth problem-solving investigation ‘Time Line’ from NRICH as today’s group activity.
