Tick..tock...tick..tock! This week in maths we practised telling the time to the hour, half past, quarter past, quarter to and in minutes. We used mini clocks to make the time as well as drawing hands on clock faces. Later on in the week we converted 12-hour times to 24-hour times. Have a go at keeping a diary for a week and write down the time you do things. Write the time in digital time. Encourage your child to tell you the time on an analogue clock as well as digital as this will help consolidate their learning.
In English we looked at a range of newspapers and articles. After discussing and picking out the features of newspapers, we read and retrieved facts to help us answer questions. We will be using our knowledge of newspaper features to write our own news article in the coming weeks.
During our science session we continued learning about classification keys and animals. We worked together to answer yes and no questions and then used that to create our own questions for our classification key. Next week we will be learning to recognise the positive and negative changes to our environment. Have a look around your local area and see if you can see some positive or negative changes.
In Geography, we studied how an earthquake happens and how earthquakes are measured. You can have a look at this video and make your own seismograph at home. Find out what happens when you shake the box harder.
Have a good weekend and remember that there is no school for children on Monday 25th November 2019. Enjoy!
