Thursday 7th May

Fact of the day:

Human teeth are just as strong as shark teeth.



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!


There are 2 different types of clock. The analogue clock - the one we have been looking at this week and the digital clock. 


A digital clock tells us the time in numbers. They look a little bit like this:

We are going to learn how to convert from analogue to digital time. 

We are only looking at the 12-hour clock today. We will do the 24-hour clock another time. 


We know that there are 60 minutes in an hour. Have a look at this clock:

The numbers in blue are the numbers we see on the clock. 

The numbers in red around the outside are the numbers that would appear on a digital clock.

Let's have a look at some examples. 

Today we are only going to think about o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. We are starting off slowly. 

When we think about digital time, the minutes part is always telling us how many minutes past the hour it is. 


Your activity today:

I have listed some times. They are either written in words or are shown on an analogue clock. Your task is to simply convert the times into digital time. 


Remember, we are only looking at the 12-hour clock. So all hour numbers should be between 1 and 12. 



Today you are going to continue and finish your diary entry. 


A reminder:

You are imagining that you have flown to space in a rocket and landed on a brand new planet! Nobody has ever landed on it before...


This is your chance to be really creative! I would like you to think about:

  • What does this planet look like?
  • Are there any particular smells?
  • Does anybody live there?
  • Are there any buildings?
  • Is your planet deserted?
  • Is it full of your favourite things?
  • Is it a ginormous playground?
  • If there are people there, what do they wear?
  • What is the food like... if there is any food?
  • Are you going to stay there? 
  • How are you feeling?


Don't forget to read it back when you are finished and check the success criteria:

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



This term our art focus in Portraits. Over the next few weeks we will be looking at artists work and forming opinions about it, finding out about an artist, learning how to draw a portrait, and using your own style to create one or more masterpieces!!!!


Do not worry about art resources. If you have paper, a pencil, a biro and some colour pencils then you will be fine. If you have anything else then that's a bonus!!!

I have attached this week's work, which you can do when you are feeling in the mood!!
