I really enjoyed having the opportunity to go swimming this week. I was so impressed with you all. I can now understand why you are so tired when you return to school – it was hard work!!!

Mathematics

Our Math’s Starters have proved a challenge this week, particularly applying our knowledge into reading the time.

This week I would really like you to practise reading the time on both analogue clocks and digital clocks.

If you are confident with this, then try converting time between analogue and digital 12 and 24-hour clocks.

Below are this week’s starters if you would like to use these to help you practise at home.

English

This week we have started our poetry unit. We have been looking at poems by the same author and identifying similarities and differences between the poems.

I would like you to choose one of the tasks below to complete this week.

  • Choose a poem and practise reading it aloud so you can recite it to the class.
  • Choose a poem and illustrate it with the images it makes you think of.
  • Write another verse for ‘The Wind’ poem we looked at in class.

The Wind

Who has seen the wind?

Neither I nor you;

But when the leaves hang trembling

The wind is passing through.

Who has seen the wind?

Neither you nor I;

But when the trees bow down their heads

The wind is passing by.
