Onthank Primary 3

Mrs Saxelby’s Thursday


Hope you are enjoying this week’s activities. I have a wee surprise for you today. I have been exploring technology during “lockdown” and have learned to do something new involving YouTube! OK, we will get going!

NUMERACY: Time – Duration

Do you remember adding and taking away hours on a clock? It was easy as we used the counting on or counting back strategy!

HINT: If we are adding or taking away hours it is only the hour hand that moves, NOT the minute hand!

TASK: Look at the times on these clocks and write:

             a) The time on the clock     b) The time one hour after     c)  The time one hour before

             e.g. 1a)  half past three, half past four, half past two    or     3.30, 4.30, 2.30

CHALLENGE: You can repeat this task again but instead of adding one hour before and after you can try 2, 3 or 4 hours!

LITERACY: ck joined phoneme

Remember digraph is the same as a joined phoneme!

Task:  Go round your house and garden to see if you can FIND any items that have the CK joined phoneme.

             WRITE all your findings down in a list and TAKE a photo of them to POST onto your blog page?

             WATCH this video and READ the CK words and CK sentences!        

Challenge: Can you write your own big sentence with lots of CK words in it.

                        I would love to see your BIG sentence on your blog!


 I hope you enjoy my story everyone! Sit back and relax!

Time to go and enjoy the rest of your day.

See you tomorrow for Catch Up Friday.

Love Mrs Saxelby and P2 Team!
