Thursday 21st May

Fact of the day:

Cadbury mini eggs have been produced since 1967!



Start your day off with some exercise. Choose either to follow the Joe Wicks live workout or a yoga routine from the Cosmic Kids Yoga link!



Reading for at least 20 minutes today, independently or to an adult. Don't forget, you can still quiz on books at home!



When we use the 12-hour clock, as we have been doing the last few days, we have to add am or pm to it to show whether it is in the morning or the afternoon/evening. 

So, we add am for the morning and pm for the afternoon. We MUST do this because otherwise, we don't know if we are talking about the morning or the afternoon/evening! 


7:15 and 7:15 look exactly the same! 

If you look at those times, you'll see that I didn't put a 0 before the 7. 


It is OKAY to do this AS LONG as there is am or pm:

7:15 am      7:15pm 


Activity 1:

Thinking about the 12-hour clock and using am and pm, write the following analogue times in digital. Read carefully whether it is in the morning or the afternoon. 


Follow this example:

Quarter past 6 in the morning = 6:15am


Now your turn:

  1. Half past 1 in the afternoon
  2. Twenty to 3 in the morning
  3. Ten past 9 in the morning
  4. Ten to 10 in the evening
  5. Five to 1 in the morning
  6. Twenty-five past 6 in the evening


Activity 2:

Have a go at this worksheet.


Today we are going to write the last paragraph of the book review. 

This paragraph will be: Who do I recommend this book to and why?


In this paragraph, you need to talk about 2 things:

  1. What age do you recommend this for?
  2. Why do you recommend this book?


Have a read of my paragraph:


I would recommend this book to children who are in year 3 and above because it is a long chapter book with lots of different adventures. I would recommend this book to children who like to read about lots of adventures and like to feel like they are also living through them. This is the best book I have read, so you should definitely have a read! It is full of magic, amazement and excitement and it takes you on a brilliant adventure. There are also two more books in the series, which means you can keep on reading for more adventures!



Today, you are going to practise drawing a self portrait. You will need:-


a pencil (if you have drawing pencils at home - 2b is best)

a mirror or a printed photograph of yourself

a piece of paper


Look at the powerpoint, which shows you the steps for doing this. First you must draw the face shape. Follow the instructions.

You might need to practise drawing several times before you get it right.

Remember to use your pencil to sketch, that means don't press hard, but just make the marks gently and if they are wrong, just redraw it, you dont need to rub it out. Its a sketch! We are practising.


This is the prompt that will remind you of the steps.

Have fun!
