L.O: to tell the time to the minute     


Today we will be looking at clock faces to tell the time to the nearest minute. Look carefully at each clock, it is important to remember that there are 60 minutes in an hour and that you can use your 5 times tables to help you. If you find it helpful, you may want to write your 5 times tables around the clock like I have done on the guided practice. Begin by watching the video below which goes through how to read clocks to the nearest minute.

To start with answer your ‘In Focus’ question which is on the first page. As we would normally discuss this with our partners at school, see if there is an adult or older brother or sister to talk to about it. Please use the box on this page record your answer and methods.


Next look at the ‘Guided Practice’ which shows you some of the different style questions. I have left the answers on the worksheet so you can see the setting out and how to go about answering these types of questions.


Now it is your turn! Have a go at the ‘Independent Practice’ which is a copy of the worksheet that you would have completed in your MNP workbooks at school. If you feel up for it, have a go at the challenge! I have also included an extra time worksheet if you would like to practise more.  


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


L.O: to look at different types of poetry


To begin with today, look at the slide showing the different features of poetry and their definitions. Read these through carefully and see if you can spot these techniques being used in the poems we looked at yesterday.


The second slide is an example of a kenning poem. Practise saying this out loud and see if there is a rhythm to it.


For your task today, read the two poems carefully and answer the questions below.

Although we are in lockdown, the expectation is for the children to still read 3 times a week for 10 minutes. Below is instructions and a link to oxford owl where an account has been created to provide the children with some ebooks.

For reading we are going to be reading chapter two, ‘A Brush with Crime’ of our book ‘My Clueless Dad’ on Fiction Express. At the end, vote on what you think she should do. If you would like to, complete the multiple-choice quiz.   


I have access to the amount of time it takes for you to read the chapter and scores for any of the online quizzes you complete.


Today’s questions are from reading domain 2d - Make inferences from the text/explain and justify inferences with evidence from the text

  1. Why is the storage room a good place to hide?
  2.  Why do you think Ms Brush vanished without a trace?
  3.  How do you feel about Ms Brush?


L.O: to recognise that we need light to see


For science this half term, we will be studying light. To begin with think about these questions: What is light? What is dark? Read through the slides which gives you some more information. Light is what enables us to see things. If we don’t have light, we can’t see. Dark is what happens when you don’t have any light.


There are lots of light sources that give us light. Can you think of any? Look at slide 9, can you find four objects that are not light sources? Check the next slide for the answers.


For your task today, I would like you to walk around your home and draw any sources of light that you find. This could be something important like a table light or something small like a light on your oven. See how many you can find.

Next, go through these slides, learning all about Mardi Gras!

Finally, have a go at learning this new French song!
