Stop the Clock!
We love playing Stop the Clock in Second Class Red. Try to beat your best time at home!
We have been learning about time in Maths. Games like bingo and Stop the Clock during stations are helping us to become more confident reading the time. This is a tricky area so please practise as often as possible at home!
