We are focusing on telling the time at the moment. We are revising o’clock, half past and quarter to/past and learning to tell the time on an analogue clock at 5 minute intervals.
We have been using the interactive clock in the link below and using 3 steps to identify the time: Is the minute hand on the past or to side of the clock? What hour has the hour hand has gone past or is coming up to? Finally we have been counting in 5’s to identify the minutes?
This Maths Frame game is a fun way of working on this at home too.
This week’s spellings are:
Health and wellbeing:
We have been thinking and talking about disability. This was explained to the children: A disability is when a person finds it difficult (or maybe impossible) to walk, see, hear, speak, learn or do other important things. Some disabilities last forever, some just last for a while. A disability can be something a person was born with, or it can be because the person has been ill or had an accident.
We are learning and talking about disability because we want our school and our class to be a place where every child is welcome and learning and has friends. We watched some short films to help us learn. Here are the links. Your child might be happy to watch them again with you.
