Maths- What time is it?
To start, have a go at the flashback 4. The answers are on the second slide of the powerpoint.
This week we will be learning about time and practicing telling the time to the nearest minute on an analogue clock. Telling the time is an essential life skills so it's important to practice lots to help you feel more confident. When might you need to be able to know and tell the time? We would like you to spend some time each day practicing to tell 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 may want to colour the hour and minute hands different colours to help you.
What vocabulary do you know about time?
Can you name all of the months in order and list something that happens in each month. The first activity we would like you to complete is the Months and Years worksheet below.
Next, we would like you to think about what time you do things throughout the day e.g get up, have lunch etc and show these on an analogue clock.
Then complete the Hours in a day worksheet.
All of the answers to the worksheets are below. Let us know how you get on on the blog.
Over the next two weeks, we will be looking at the unit 'Lockdown Creative Writing' by Pie Corbett and Dean Thompson. Everyone's experience of lockdown has been different so we would like you to do some writing to share with others and also to look back on as a memory in a few years.
Remember to share on the Remote learning blog on Purple Mash
Each day we will upload a 'Word of the Day'. Practice saying the word. Have you heard this word before? What do you think it means? Underneath the word is a definition and an example of how it is used in a sentence. There are also synonyms (words that have the same meaning) and antonyms (words opposite in meaning).
Have a go at using the word in a sentence and share on the Purple Mash blog :)
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 are positive things too. Below is a positive thought diary which you may like to fill in.
One thing we probably are all 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.
