Help support your child's maths learning at home with a practical, targeted eBook. Time topics covered include learning to tell the time to the hour, half hour, quarter past / to the hour, analogue and digital time, calculating time intervals and reading timetables. As well as parents' notes on the theory your eBook contains lots of practical activities and games to help your child practise what they're learning at home.

Teach your child time is a reference guide and home-teaching kit which will help you understand exactly what time-related skills your child is expected to have mastered in each year of the primary school curriculum. Primary school teacher and parent Alice Hart has compiled information, tips and activities to ensure that you have the right information at your fingertips so you can quickly make sure your child has fully grasped and achieved each and every skill for their correct year group and using the same methods that they are taught (rather than confusing them with the one you were taught at school!). You'll be able to print off highly targeted and child-friendly fun worksheets to help them master each of the essential skills as they progress through school – in fun, five-minute sessions.

In Teach your child time, you’ll discover:

  • The vocabulary/terminology your child is being taught at school, so you can use the same concepts at home.
  • An explanation of the methods they’re taught to use so you don’t end up doing more harm than good by trying to teach them in a different way.
  • Why it is so important to talk to your child about their learning so that they understand that feeling nervous or confused about maths is normal and something you can overcome together.

'What I found best [about Teach your child time] is the description of what we should expect a child to learn in every year from Reception to Year 6. My son had some time struggling with the topic of Time previously, mainly because I had no idea that telling time to 5 minutes is not year 1 topic. I was worried when he was not able to grasp the concept. However this eBook perfectly describes and with the help of activities and worksheets, everyone will have a fair idea of the topic of Time. The worksheets are detailed and cover the topic very well. After going through the activities in this eBook, my son has become very confident.' – Musfirah, Kent
