In order to prepare your child for Year 6 and beyond there are a number of life skills that your children need to become secure in. These are best practised in real life situations, when cooking, shopping, travelling e.g.
- Telling the time on an analogue and digital clock
- Reading bus timetables
- Understanding units of measure: mm, cm, m, km, g and kg, ml and l
- Converting currency
- Calculating totals and change in shops
- Calendar skills: days in a week, months in a year, hours in a day etc
Have a lovely summer and post on the blog what you have been up to!
