Wednesday 6th May

Wednesday 6th May

Fact of the day:

Sometimes, sea otters hold hands when they sleep so they don't drift apart.



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 check our knowledge of telling the time on an analogue clock. 

An analogue clock is a clock with numbers around the side and 2 hands. The clocks we have been looking at this week. 


I'm hoping that you have found the last few sessions useful and we are beginning to be able to tell the time. I know it is a very hard thing to learn but it is important we keep practising and not give up. 


Activity 1:

Write the time that the clock is showing. You can draw these clocks in your books and write the time next to it. 

Activity 2:

For each of the following times, draw a clock and put the hands on in the correct place. 


  1. Half past 6
  2. 9 o'clock
  3. Quarter past 7
  4. Five past 10
  5. Twenty five to 3
  6. Ten to 8
  7. Quarter to 1
  8. Ten past 2
  9. Twenty to 11
  10. Twenty past 4
  11. Five to 5
  12. Twenty five past 12



We are going to do another diary entry. However this week...


You are going to imagine 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?


Your diary entry is going to be about all of the things above. You want to write down as much as you can because you never want to forget what happened to you on this day!

You might want to write a short plan to get a few ideas down before you start writing. 


You have got today and tomorrow to do this. I would expect to see at least 3 paragraphs.


I hope that you enjoy writing these, this is an exciting piece of writing!

Success criteria (try to include all of these):

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

Computing / PSHCE:

This afternoon we are going to do something a little bit different!

I would like you to pretend to be a news reporter. You are going to prepare a news report telling people:

  • What has been happening in the world recently
  • What you have been doing
  • Give your opinions on the situation


If you want to, you could send these to grandparents or other family members - I'm sure they would be excited to hear about what you have been up to!


It is up to you how you go about doing this.

You might want to write a script and read from it.

You might not want to write a script, just sit in front of the camera and speak. 

You could get your siblings or family members involved - you might go to them for a special interview! 

You might have siblings to pretend to be a celebrity and they could say what they have been up to in lockdown. 


This is an activity I think you will have lots of fun doing! You can be imaginative - you could switch to a book character and ask them what they have been doing, or a pet, or a teddy bear! 


If you can't film it, don't worry!!

I hope you have fun!!
