L.O: to tell time using both analogue and digital methods


Now we have spent some time practising telling the time digitally, today we are going to have a go at using analogue methods. Today I would like you to begin the lesson by watching an Oak Academy video. Mrs Behan takes you through how to read analogue time to the nearest minute. 

After watching the video then I would like you to have a go at your Maths No Problem pages. 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. I apologise that this is quite blurry, this was the clearest I could get it!


Next look at the ‘Guided Practice’ which shows you some of the different style questions. I have shown my working out and 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! Good luck!


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


L.O: to identify features in a poem


Think back to what we have looked at in poetry so far, see if you can remember any of the different types of poetry and their key features. The poem that we began to look at yesterday is called ‘Water-cycle’. Was your prediction correct? Read the poem a few times and practise saying it aloud. One of our objectives during this unit is reading aloud so it would be great to build up your confidence of this.


We will be focussing on three key features that are used in poems, alliteration, rhyme and repetition. Read through the slides to see what these are and examples of them. For your task today, I would like you to read through the poem and identify any alliteration, repetition and rhyme that is used.


I have made a worksheet with three columns for you to write up examples, alternatively you can label a copy of the poem or use highlighters to identify the techniques.


Please could you email this piece of work to me.


L.O: to use the suffix ‘ly’   


At the end of last half term, we completed a spelling lesson on the suffix ‘ly’. For your lesson today we are going to use a new website called Spelling Frame. I would like you to complete the practise and test modes for the suffix ‘ly’. You will need to listen to the sentences carefully and then fill out the spelling.


Work set by Mr Ashby:


For this weeks PE there are 6 challenges to choose from. You will need to use your skills of balance, speed, agility and co-ordination.


If you can take a picture of you doing the activities I would love to see them 


Work set by Mrs Entwistle:


This half term in PSHE, we are looking at the puzzle piece, 'healthy me'. I would like you to talk to your adults about what we can do to stay healthy.  


Once you have done this, I would like you to take some time to assess how you feel about returning to school. I know some of you may feel nervous, and some of you may be excited. It's possible that some of you may feel both nervous and excited! Whatever emotions you feel about returning are okay, but just take a moment to think about how you feel.
