Learning Focus- Years, months and days.

Remember to:

 Children recap the concept of a year, month, week and day from Year 3. They use this knowledge, along with their knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to convert between the different units of time.  Leap year: In a leap year, there are 366 days. In a non-leap year, there are 365. The reason for this is because the Earth actually takes 365 days, 5 hours, 59 minutes and 16 seconds to orbit the Sun. These extra minutes, hours and seconds are rounded to produce one quarter of a day. Every fourth year, the quarters are added together to produce an extra day that is added to the shortest month (February). This occurs once every four years and is referred to as a leap year.

2. Work through the 'Years, months and days' PowerPoint attached below.                                                                          Have your workbook ready to work through the examples.

3. Complete the 'Years, months and days' worksheet which can be found in your home learning pack.       Answers will be provided shortly via Parent Hub App.

4. Challenge: As a bonus challenge, children can complete the WRM extension.                                                                    The challenge is not in your home learning pack and should be completed in your workbook.
