English – Monday 8th June 2020

Welcome to your first lesson of week 9, I can’t quite believe it’s been so long! Today we are going to read the next chapter of Matilda using the audiobook below. The chapter starts at 26 minutes and 55 seconds and finishes on 35 minutes 30 seconds. Once you have finished the chapter, I would like you to try to summarise what has happened so far, this could be in a couple of sentences or you could explain it to a parent or sibling. Then, I would like you to create a story map of the chapter similar to the one you created for Fantastic Mr Fox. I have attached an example of a story map below so you can see an example. For an extra challenge, you could outline what is happening at each stage in the chapter using your summary sentences from the beginning of the lesson.

Maths - Monday 8th June 2020

Welcome back to another week of maths. This week you will continue to develop your understanding of time. 

Everyday you should also have a go on  Times Table Rock Stars. I am looking forward to seeing all the fantastic avatars you have created from all the coins you have earned. Also, of course, to seeing how much your times tables have improved. 


Today you will be consolidating your leaning on telling the time to 5 minutes.

First you need to watch the video. This was made by a little girl called Amber (but I think she looks a bit like Bea in 3K – what do you think?).  In this video, the numbers on the clock face are shown ‘stretched out’ on a number line. This is because clock faces are just a number line really bent around to made into a circle.

Telling the time in analogue (part 3) Reading minutes past and minutes to to 5 minutes

Activity. Pretend that you are teaching a lesson like Amber. If you have any soft toys, dolls or little figures of any type you could pretend to teach them a lesson, just like Amber does in the video. If the person looking after you has access to a video, you could ask them to record you and send it to Miss Thomas or Mrs. Karban. We could put it on Twitter if your parents give permission. In any case, we would love to see you being the teacher for once!

If you don’t want to teach your own class, you could do the activity set for you on ‘My Maths’, work through the lesson first remembering to look out for the ‘Next’ button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen so you do not miss any pages. When you have done this have a go at the activity set.

Today's Puzzle. Which one doesn't belong and why? Can you think of a reason why each of them may not belong?
