Time to warm up our brains!
Today we will be looking at finding the duration of something, e.g. a t.v. programme, a lesson or a journey. This is a concept that will be new to the children. Using a number line will help them to calculate the duration as using the column addition or subtraction method will not work for time.
When using a number line, it can be easier to go to the next half or hour mark first, e.g. find the difference between 10:20 and 11:30:
10 mins 1 hour
10 mins + 1 hour = 1 hour and 10 minutes
