Maths

Converting Time

This week for our maths lessons we will be looking at, ‘Time.’ We are all used to seeing time displayed on a digital phone or laptop and we have all heard someone say things like, ‘in a minute’ or ‘just a sec’ but do we really know all about time?

I know that you all have learnt about time in the past so this week I am going to refresh your memories about hours, minutes and seconds.

Today we will be concentrating on only minutes and seconds. We are going to be converting minutes to second, seconds to minutes and working out the new time when minutes and seconds have been added to a particular time. Your knowledge of the 6 times table will help you when converting, for example  1 x 6 = 6 therefore 1 x 60 = 60 also 2 x 6 = 12 so 2 x 60 = 120, hopefully you can see you are making the answer 10 times bigger.

Converting minutes to seconds,

Example:

1 minute = 60 seconds

2 minutes = 120 seconds     (60+60=120)

5 minutes = 300 seconds        (60+60+60+60+60=300)

Converting seconds to minutes,

Example:

60 seconds = 1 minute

90 seconds = 1 minute 30 seconds      (60+30=90)

160 seconds = 2 minutes 40 seconds     (60+60+40=160)

New time when time has been added - converted from seconds to minutes and seconds,

Example:

Starting time: 55 seconds, add 5 seconds = 1 minute (60 seconds)

Starting time: 120 seconds, add 20 seconds = 2 minutes and 20 seconds (140 seconds)

I will go through this in more details during our live lesson this morning. I have attached the worksheets below, remember that 60 = 1 minute I know you will be able to work out the answers. If you are unable to print off the worksheets, write your answers in your books.

Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.
Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

Travel Leaflet

As we have been reading Kensuke’s Kingdom we have found out more about Michael and his family along with the different places he has visited on their trip so far. They have been lucky enough to visit the following countries:

Spain

The Azores

Cape Verde Islands

Recife, Brazil

Rio, Brazil

The Canary Islands

St Helena

South Africa

Perth, Australia

Sydney, Australia

Taking one of these places that Michael, Mum, Dad and Stella visit I would like you to produce a travel leaflet. Please select one of these places and include information about it based on these questions below:

1. Where is it in the world? What countries border it (if any)?

2. What language do the natives speak?
3. What currency is used there?

4. What is the population of this place?

5. What key landmarks are there?

6. What is traditionally eaten/drunk in that country/place?

7. Are there any historical things Michael and his family would be interested in?

8. Where are the key places to visit in this area of the world?

Once you have gathered all of your information, put it together in a leaflet – you might want to create this in your blue book or on a plain piece of paper, it’s up to you. Remember most travel leaflets that you will come across will have pictures of landmarks or a small map of the country/island so help you navigate your way around.

I have attached a template that you could use if you wanted to.

Geography

Oceans of the World

This week our lesson is focusing on the oceans of the world. You may already now that there are 5 oceans in our world.

The word, ’ocean’ means, a very large area of water and most of our world is covered in water. I have attached below a presentation which you need to read through - it tells you all about the world’s oceans. As you read through you will find out where all the five different oceans are located in the world.

Once you have read the presentation your task today is to write in your books at least 2 sentences about each of the oceans describing if they are hot, cold, calm or rough, you will find this information in the presentation. You could say what countries the oceans are next to or even why they have their particular name.  When you have finished that I would like you to, (if you are able) to print off the attached world map and write on where the different oceans are located and if you really want to impress me you could even write on the continents the oceans are next to.

If you are unable to print off the map I would like you to draw the outline of the world in your book, it doesn’t have to be perfect, mark on the oceans so you know where they are in the world.

I look forward to seeing your work.

PE

Circuit Challenge

This week in PE I’m giving you the chance to do some circuit fitness activities. I have attached the circuit activity cards below – I would like you to choose at least 5 of the activities from the cards and have a go at these. You might want to set up a circuit in your garden where you move from one station to the next and complete each activity as you go. Some do require you to do them with a buddy – this could be a parent/carer, sibling etc. Don’t forget to send over some photos of you completing your circuit of activities.
