Y3 Maths

Year 3 Hours in a Day

This Year 3 Hours in a Day lesson covers the prior learning of how many minutes are in an hour and how many hours are in a day, before moving onto the main skill of looking at the different time periods within a day.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
