Thursday 30th April

Fact of the day:

The average yawn lasts 6 seconds!



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!


Today we are going to start our new maths topic which is telling the time. 

This is a very tricky thing to learn, and I am sure that it will become frustrating. I am going to start this off slow, by recapping what you will have learnt last year. We are not going to rush onto new things, but it is important that you practise telling the time all the time! You might find that your parents start asking you 'what is the time?' lots...that's because I am asking them to do this! The more you practise, the easier it will get!


We are going to start today by making ourselves a clock which we can use over the next few weeks in activities I will set you, where you will need to show the time on a clock. This will save you from drawing out lots and lots of clocks!


You will need: 

  • A piece of paper
  • A plate
  • Scissors
  • A pen, coloured pens if you want
  • A ruler


Look through the PowerPoint below and follow the instructions to make your clock!

You are now going to use this clock to play a game. Today, we are only focusing on o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. These are ones you should already be able to identify. 


I have created a PowerPoint called 'show me the time'. I have given you a time, you need to show it on your clock. When you think you have got it right, click to the next slide to see the answer. 

See if you can get all 10 right!


We are now going to swap this around. The following worksheet has pictures of clocks telling the time. Your job is to write down what time the clock is saying. 

These clocks all show, o'clock, quarter past and half past. 


You can draw these out in your books and write the time next to it. 

The answers are in this document too.


If you could have one superpower, what would that be?

Have a think about this. There needs to be some reasons why you choose this superpower. 


Today and tomorrow you are going to do some more creative writing. I would like you to write 3 paragraphs to explain the following, you might want to write a short plan first to help you:

  • What superpower have you chosen?
  • Why have you chosen this superpower?
  • What would you be able to do if you had this superpower? Give some examples. 
  • How would this superpower change your life?
  • Would it change the lives of people around you? Would you superpower be able to help others or is it only you who would benefit from it?
  • Will you tell people that you have this superpower? Why / why not?


Do not rush to get it all finished today, you can finish writing this tomorrow. 

I am very interested to see what superpowers you all choose and the reasons you have chosen it! 


Success criteria (try to include all of these):

  • Capital letters
  • Full stops
  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs
  • Interesting sentence starters
  • Exclamation marks
  • Conjunctions
  • Alliteration


I have seen some of your lovely smoothie designs, and they all look very tasty. Its a shame I cant pop round to your houses to taste them!!

Now I want you to evaluate the smoothie, which means thinking about what was good about it. Did it taste good? Would you change any of the ingredients next time.

If you don't manage to make the smoothie today, wait until you do and then do this evaluation sheet.
