Tables and Timetables

Google Classroom at 9:10 for the first 15 minutes. Please attend.


As you have spent time getting to grips with time, converting between minutes, hours, seconds and between 12 and 24 hour times it is time now to apply this learning to questions related to a real life context that you may need later in life.


When we look at time tables we need to take in all of the information as there is quite a lot presented in one table. Again when we are using time tables you will need to use your knowledge of finding the difference between two times.


To be able to do this you will need to take the first time and find out how many minutes you need to get to the next hour. Once you are at that hour you can then add on any additional hours and any additional minutes to find the difference, this is also the same calculation when you are asked to find how long a journey is.



Find the difference between 10:45 and 12:24


Starting at 10:45 I know there are 15 minutes to get to the next hour which is 11:00.


Now I am at 11:00 I can look at how many more hours I need to get to 12:00 – this is 1 hour.


Now I am at 12:00 I need to get to 12:24 – this would mean I need to add on 24 minutes.


Now you have worked your way from 10:45 to 12:24 you need to put all the times together: 15 minutes + 1 hour + 24 minutes = 1 hour 39minutes


Completing tables


When you are asked to complete a table, you will need to use the information that is already presented there and work from the clues to help you fill in the missing gaps.  


If you are told that one digit is 6 smaller than a number that is already presented in the table you can do the calculation to find the missing information. We have touched on this previously but we will go through this during our live session.



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.

Linking Ideas in a Paragraph.

Google Classroom live lesson at 10:50 – Please attend


For today’s lesson you are going to focus on how ideas link across paragraphs and what we use to make your writing flow. A lot of the time we use adverbial phrases to make these links – they will tell when, how, where or how often something happens. As these make your writing flow smoothly, we call this cohesion.



In ten minutes, we’re going to the park. We’re having lunch after that.

Both the red areas are adverbial phrases – they both tell you when something is going to happen.


When you change paragraphs you normally have a change in time, place or number to ensure your writing continues to flow.



Time – Tomorrow, we will be going out in the woods.


Place – In the middle of the table, Curtis lay down the bones of the bird he had found.


Number – Secondly, I started to collect the items I needed for the task ahead.


We will discuss the different uses of adverbs and adverbial phrases to help your paragraphs flow during our live lesson.


11:50 – 12:30


Charanga Yumu


Today’s lesson is focused on you accessing Charanga Yumu, if you follow the link below it will take you to the login page.


Please use your Yumu login to access Step 2 of the Will Smith work this week. Today you need to listen to and appraise the song ‘Me, Myself and I’. Take some time to listen to it a couple of times to become familiar with the song.


Answer the questions on the page once you have listened to it, make sure you jot these down somewhere – whether it’s in your blue lined books or on a word document that’s up to you.


Once you have appraised the song, take a look at the ‘flexible games track’ activities, you can choose the bronze, silver or gold challenge and see how you get on. When you have mastered the movements, have a look at the signed version – it’s a little bit slower than the Will Smith version so you can pick up the signs that are being used for the rap. 


After you’ve practised your signing you can take a look at the activity labelled ‘Replacement activity’ this asks you to create your own rap lyrics for the Fresh Prince of Bel Air tune. Some of you did this last week and made it relevant to your experiences through lockdown and growing up. Perhaps you want to try and write some rap lyrics about how you are feeling about the return to school.


1:15 – 2:35


As this is your last enrichment time before you come back to school, I would like you to take some time spending it with people at home. You might want to have a film afternoon or do some baking or get outdoors or play some board games together. Don’t forget to send some photos over of you enjoying your time together.


Enjoy the afternoon spending time together and make the most of it.

A different session today, Mrs Hodgetts will be online for this one to answer any questions you may have about the return to school on Monday. Remember there is no such thing as a silly question so please ask her anything you want to know about it. Parents feel free to jump on too if you have anything you would like to know.
