Converting Hours to Minutes/Minutes to Hours

Google Classroom at 9:10am for the first 15 minutes. (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


Continuing our work with time, today we are going to be concentrating on converting hours to minutes and minutes to hours. Knowing how well you answered yesterday’s questions on minutes and seconds I know you will be amazing at today’s tasks.


Converting from hours to minutes, you will discover that you will be using exactly the same skill set that you have gained from converting minutes and seconds. You now know that 1 minute has 60 seconds, so I know you can work out questions using this knowledge. Hours are the same, 1 hour has 60 minutes.


Your questions today will be looking at converting hours into minutes and minutes into hours, I have included some examples to help you.


Example: Hours into minutes:

1 hour = 60 minutes

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

3 hours = 180 (60+60+60=180 minute)


Trickier questions:

1 hour 45 minutes (60+45=105 minutes)

2 hours 10 minutes (60+60+10=130 minutes)


Minutes into hours:

75 minutes (60+15=75) = 1 hour 15 minutes

125 minutes (60+60+5=125) = 2 hours 5 minutes

270 minutes (60+60+60+60+30=270) = 4 hours 30 minutes


If you break down the time given into minutes by using your knowledge of 1 hour = 60 minutes you will be able to work out the answers to all the questions. I will go over this in more detail during our live lesson today. If you are unable to print off the sheets, write your answers in your workbooks. I look forward to seeing how you have got on. I know you can do it!

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.


10:50 – 11:50
English – Continue to Chapter

Google Classroom at 10:50am for the first 15 minutes. (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


For today’s lesson I would like you to think about the following paragraph, 


‘Then came the howling again from the trees, and the hackles went up on Stella’s neck. She charged up the beach barking and barking, until she was sure she had silenced the last of the echoes. It was a musical, plaintive howling this time, not at all menacing. I thought I recognised it. I had heard howling like it once before on a visit to London Zoo.’


I want you to put yourself into Michael’s shoes today and write from his perspective. He thinks he recognises the sound as something he has heard at the view. 


Take this information and continue Michael’s writing. Think about the following things in your continuation of this paragraph. 


1. What animal in the zoo does the howling sound like?
2. Where on an island would this animal be living? Where might you and Stella find it?
3. Do you find any evidence of this animal as you run through the forest trying to find them?
4. How does Stella react when/if you discover these animals?


Once you have written your paragraph to detail the animal Michael thinks it is read through it and check your spelling and punctuation to make sure it reads well. 


I look forward to seeing what you think the animal is and where Michael will find it (if he does).


11:50 – 12:30

Key Question: Did God intend Jesus to be crucified and if so was Jesus aware of this?  

Title for your blue book: Easter
What was God’s plan for Jesus’ life?  
Christians believe that Jesus was sent to the Earth to show people how to lead good lives, to die to save the day and come back to life again to prove to Christians that they could also have life after death.  
What do you think of this plan? What does it tell us about God?  Do you think Jesus was aware of God’s plan?  


Click on the video link below to watch The Beginners Bible - The Story of Easter


Discuss the main events of the Easter story with someone at home. Why didn't Jesus save himself? Why didn't God save him?


Activity: Put these events in the order in which they occurred and write sentences explaining what each one is about.


  • The Last Supper
  • Palm Sunday
  • Easter Sunday
  • Good Friday
  • Jesus in the Temple
  • Judas's Betrayal


1:15 – 2:35



Today for our PSHE lesson I want you to think about how you have felt about lockdown.

Nobody alive today has lived through a pandemic like this. The whole world has had to stay indoors because germs spread so easily and people get very ill.


The Coronavirus has affected everybody and our lives have changed so much compared to how it was before the virus broke out. Today I would like you to write down how you have felt during the pandemic, I would like you to say how your life has changed, what is good and what is different. I also would like you to write about what you would like to go back to the same as it was before the virus, how you have felt about not going to school or being one of the few children that has been into school. Describe how you are feeling about going back to school and being allowed to see you friends again?


Once you have completed that I want you to write down the advice you would give to someone in the future to help prepare them if there was going to be another pandemic. Would you advise them to go and buy lots of food and toilet roll or would you tell them to find things to do because it gets very boring at times staying in the house?


I look forward to reading about your feelings and the advice you would give.

Join me today for the rest of Chapter 4, let's see if we find out more about where Michael and Stella have ended up. I wonder if they will find out what is making the howling sound and where it is coming from.
