Children will now be confident reading the time in 5-minute intervals. In this lesson children will draw the hands on analogue clocks. They will be reminded that the hour hand moves as the minute hand does and be able to judge approximately where the hour hand will be positioned from the minutes past or to. 

Ask questions such as:
How can our 5 times table help us when counting around the clock?
Why do we use the terms ‘to’ and ‘past’?
What time is being displayed on the clock?
Show __ past __. Show me __ to __.

You’re going to use your notes from yesterday to write the second section of Bolt’s Space Report about living on The International Space Station.




Here’s my WAGOLL:

Life on the ISS is definitely interesting! It’s similar to being on an aeroplane except that everything that isn’t fastened down floats because there is no gravity. Food can be great fun especially when the astronauts catch it in their mouths. Drinks becoming wobbly balloons is really weird! Keeping clean is tricky as water is very precious so must not be wasted. Giant wet wipes are used for washing and wee and poo are sucked down the toilet with air! Exercise is really important to keep the astronauts fit and healthy and when they’re tired, did you know that they sleep standing up or floating around!?


Remember to write in full sentences using capital letters and full stops for each one. You may also need to use commas, question marks or exclamation marks. The questions make it really interesting and engaging for your reader because they make them think about what they are reading.




Lunch time: Am sure you are all ready for lunch!!! I will go an have comfort break as I am fasting.


Guided Reading

Here is your next task linked to the book Beegu. Today, you have to imagine that you are Beegu and write what he would be saying and thinking at different times in the story.



Remember, there are no right or wrong answers. You can use your imagination, though there are clues in the story and pictures, of course.




Today we are going to think about what we have learnt about materials. Look through these slides and discuss the different materials.




Isn't this story silly!? Can you change the words that are wrong on slide 9. Think carefully about the materials that the objects would be made from.

You might want to number the blank boxes and just list the words, or you could copy the improved story out in your most beautiful handwriting.



Or you could print it out and write on it:

Can you create your own mini story like this?


Story Time:

Are you ready to listen to another exciting story? Make sure you are sitting nice and comfortably. When you are ready click on the video.
