It has been lovely to hear how you are getting on at home and how hard you are all working - please keep it up! I'm very proud of you all. Some days will be harder than others but if you give it a go, that's all we can ask
Today I have not included phonics because I want you to have a go at the second Music lesson. The link is below and please get in touch if you have any problems and I will try to get back to you as quickly as I can.
Do you like our new topic? I know some of you were due to go on holiday and now can't but hopefully you will enjoy all the activities over the next few weeks instead.
See you tomorrow!
Objective – I can tell the time to the nearest half hour.
Today we are going to learn how to tell the time to the nearest half hour. When the minute hand (the longer hand) is on 12, it is o’clock, but when it has only travelled a half of the way around the clock and it is pointing at 6, we say it is half past. The hour hand will now be half way between hours so this is sometimes slightly harder to read but look at the hour it has just gone past. Telling the time to the nearest half hour is slightly harder than o’clock times. Here is a short clip to help you.
Task – Look at the clocks and write the time (some are o’clock times and some are half past times).
Challenge – Working with someone, use the link below to make different o’clock and half past times. Take turns so that one person makes the time then the other person has to say the time and swap over.
Objective – I can write questions with question marks.
I hope you enjoyed describing your holiday destination and I’m sure you were able to think of some fantastic sentences. Today we are going to imagine that we are on holiday, at your destination and we are going to write a post card to one of our friends or family members. A postcard is a short message that tells that person what you have been doing and asks them questions. Below is some more information about how to write a postcard. Read through it and talk to an adult about what you could include in your post card.
Task – Use the template (or make your own!) to write a post card for one of your family or friends. You will need to include a sentence about your holiday, a sentence (at least, about what you have been doing – use your imagination!), usually a sentence about your thoughts (likes or dislikes) and some questions (remember these need question marks). At the end you will need to say who the post card is from.
Challenge – On the other side of the post card, draw your holiday destination so the person you are writing to can see where you are. Maybe you could include yourself and don’t forget to colour it in to make it bright and colourful.
