Monday 7th June – Maths

Time – Duration (Minutes)

I am learning to understand that 1 minute is the same as 60 seconds.

I know I can do it when I have completed activities that last 1 minute.

This week we will be looking at time in a variety of different ways. Today’s focus will be to develop our understanding that 60 seconds is the same amount of time as 1 minute.

Independent Task

What sorts of things can you do in 60 seconds?

Brainstorm/write a list of activities that you can complete around your house in about 60 seconds. Some examples might include: getting dressed, washing your hands, running to your letterbox and back.

Once you have written your list, test it out!

Using a stopwatch, write down the time it took you to complete each task on your list. For example: it took me 33 seconds to run to the letterbox and back.
