I hope you had a great first day of this term. I find the weather certainly helps although it was very hot yesterday. We had the paddling pool out which ended in a water fight! It helped to cool us down.
I have updated the 'suggest weekly tasks' with this week's focus grid and more information about our new topic for this term.
Instead of setting PE challenges each week, below I have a monthly challenge. It is called 'Active June' and that's because this challenge requires you to be active for just a short period every single day! Some of you are very active and will find this very easy but for others this will be a challenge but I would like to see you have a go at it. I hope you enjoy it and it might inspire you to design an 'Active July' challenge that you and your family could take part in.
See you tomorrow!
Objective – I can tell the time to the nearest hour.
Today we are going to carry on learning how to tell the time to the nearest hour, but also how we can show o’clock times. Can you remember what the longer hand is called? Can you remember what the shorter hand is called? Can you remember the name of the hand that ticks around quickly and is usually red? Have a look at the clocks below, with an adult see if you can read the time on each clock.
We are now going to learn how to write o’clock times. When drawing the hands on a clock it is important to use a ruler because clock hands are straight and it is very hard to draw straight lines without a ruler. It doesn’t matter which hand you draw first, but I usually start with the minute hand. This is the longer hand and it should be pointing at the 12 to show o’clock. Line your ruler up with the centre of the clock face (there is usually a dot there to help you) and the other side of the ruler at the 12. Draw a line from the dot to the 12 so that it is just touching or just before. Next you need to draw the hour hand. Line the ruler up so that it starts in the centre again but this time the other end of the ruler needs to line up to whatever the hour is. For example, 1 for 1’clock, 2 for 2o’clock, etc. Remember this hand doesn’t touch the number and must be smaller than your minute hand.
Task -To show the o’clock time on these clock faces. If you do not have a printer, you could draw around something round and make your own clocks to show different o’clock times on.
Objective – I can use adjectives to describe.
We have arrived! Today we are going to imagine we are at our holiday destination, but where that is, is up to you! Below are different photographs, you can decide which is our holiday destination. Have a look at photographs and talk with an adult about which you prefer and why. Start to think about how you could describe that location using adjective – what it looks like, smells like, what sounds you can hear, what is above/below/in front and behind you and as many other describing words as you can.
Task – To write a descriptive paragraph about your chosen destination. Remember you are writing it as yourself so you can say things like ‘I’ ‘My’ and remember to include anyone who came with us on the journey!
Challenge – To have at least three sentences in your writing that have conjunctions (but, because, and, then).
Today we are going to continue our work on 'tch'.
