Mental and oral starter activity: Consolidate O’clock and half past times.



Click on the PowerPoint  lesson 2

In today’s Math’s lesson we are going to tell the time to quarter past and quarter to.


Children should now be confident how to correctly manipulate the minute and hour hands on clocks to show times: o’clock and half past. They will build on this knowledge to read quarter past and quarter to times from given clocks. They will use their knowledge of fractions to understand quarters on a clock. They will recap that the hour hand moves as the minute hand does and in turn, understand that quarter past will show hour hand a quarter of the way past the hour and that quarter to will show the hour hand a quarter way to the next hour.

Ask questions such as:
How can fractions help us when finding quarter past / to times?
Where will the hour hand be positioned for quarter past / quarter to?
Why do we use the terms ‘to’ and ‘past’?
What time is being displayed on the clock?
Show me quarter past __.
Show me quarter to __.


Independent Maths Activities:

Practical activity: click on the website to practice o’clock and half past.


Activity 1: – Children will read time on clocks for quarter past and quarter to. They will complete stem sentences when writing the time. Children will draw time on the clocks provided.

If you have a printer, you can print out this template. If not, don’t worry – just will just be able to write each section on paper with the headings.




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


Here’s my WAGOLL:

The International Space Station is like a floating laboratory in space where astronauts live and work together. It has been orbiting the Earth since 1988. Do you know why it is called the INTERNATIONAL Space Station? It’s because sixteen countries worked together to construct it because it would have been too expensive for one country to do on their own. Russia built the living quarters for the astronauts and the countries of Europe built the vehicles. The best part is the amazing observation deck so the astronauts have the best view of Space and Earth! Rockets carried the ISS bit by bit into space and they were joined together by computers and astronauts. How clever is that!?


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. Make it really interesting and engaging for your reader.



Guided Reading

When you make a prediction, it's okay to change your mind when you get some more information. In today's task, you might have a different idea when you see another picture of Beegu. There is never just one correct answer when you make a prediction, but you must be able to say why you think that.





We have already looked at how different materials are best suited for different objects. You're going to LOVE today's task because you can do a science investigation to find out which materials are waterproof. You should have all of the materials (or something similar) at home.


Before you do an investigation, it's always great to make some predictions (just like you've been doing in your Reading work on Beegu).


Fill in the first column. Do you think each material will be waterproof? Yes or No?

As you do the investigation record what happens and decide if each material is waterproof or not.



 This PowerPoint will take you through how you can do the investigation. You may need to make slight changes depending upon what you have at home.



Were your predictions correct?

Which material would you use to patch up an umbrella? Why?


It's time for a story so when you are ready just click on the video.
