Maths- What time is it?
This week we will be learning about time and practicing telling the time to the nearest minute on an analogue. We would like you to spend some time every day practicing telling the time on an analogue clock. If you don't have one at home you could use an online interactive one here https://www.topmarks.co.uk/time/teaching-clock or make your own. There is a template below if you need help (don't worry if you don't have a split pin at home, you can just place the hands on top). You could also colour the hour and minute hands different colours to help you.
To start, have a go at the flashback 4. The answers are on the second slide of the powerpoint.
How many seconds are in a minute? Ask an adult to set a timer for 1 minute. Close your eyes when they say go and open your eyes when you think a minute has passed. How close were you to a minute? You could also try setting a timer for 1 hour and list all the things you can do in an hour.
Now have a go at the 'Hours, minutes and seconds' worksheet.
Let us know how you get on on the blog.
Over the next two week we will be working on the unit 'Impossibly Possible Bookshop' by Kat Pennington.
To start, you need to read the story on pages 3-6. There is also a link to an audio recording of the story. To help you remember what happens in the story you may want to draw a story map or create actions of key events. The more you read the story the more it will help you to remember it.
Next, we would like to you think about and answer the questions on page 7 (Let's chat about the story).
Firstly, we would like you to think about how you are feeling today and think about what has made you feel this way. It is important to do this regularly. You might like to do this every morning and night or at the beginning and end of the week.
Remember it is okay if you have had a bad day or week because there may be positive things too. Below is a positive thought diary which you may like to fill in.
One thing we probably all are missing is our friends. None of us have ever been in this situation before but it won't last forever and we will be able to see our friends again. Lots of things are different and we need to remember our friendship skills. Have a go at the activities below and think about what makes a good friend.
