In Year 4 we learn to read, write and convert between analogue and digital time (12hour and 24hour), including converting between hours/minutes, minutes/seconds, years/months, weeks to days.
It is expected that children already know how to tell the time to 1 minute intervals by now.
We are listening to a song to help us with this:
Please help us by asking your child to convert between different units of time, how many days in a month etc.
We have been learning the 6 and 9 times tables this week (15-10-18). Please keep asking us different multiples of 6 and 9 to help us remember them.
