SPaG RWI Maths Break Times Tables Practise English Lunch Art Story Time Art Reading

Good Morning!

We hope you have had a great in the snow yesterday. We loved seeing all of your snowmen. .


8:50 – 9.30



In SPaG today we would like you to get your Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling books out and turn to page 7.


Today we are going to be looking at Adverbs. An Adverb describes a verb (a doing word) and tells us how the action was done.


For example;


I ran quickly to the shops.


The adverb here is quickly as it is describing how I was running.


The dog barked loudly in the garden.


The adverb in this sentence is loudly as it describes what the bark was like.




Your first task for today is to complete the RWI lesson for Set 3 sound ‘ear’. Click on the link below and select Set 3 sound ‘ear’ lesson.

Make sure you click on Set 3 sounds on the playlists and then on Set 3 speed sounds with Rosie. When you have finished watching the Set 3 sound video please feel free to watch the Set 3 spelling video too.




Today in Maths we are going to continue looking at time. You will need your yellow Maths book. On our class page on the website there is a worksheet to complete. If you can’t print it off do not worry you can complete it in your yellow Maths book.


Today we are going to look at 5 minute intervals from half past to o’clock. Telling the time from half past to o’clock we have to use the word to. When the minute hand is anywhere on the clock between 6 and 12 this is to the hour.


When we are looking at 5 minute intervals it is important for us to know our 5 times table. Every number is 5 minutes.


There are 12 numbers around the clock face, and each interval is 5 minutes, so there are 12 × 5 = 60 minutes in an hour.


So we are going to be concentrating on to the hour,

7 – 25 to

8 – 20 to

9 – 15 minute to or we call this quarter to

10 – 10 to

11 – 5 to


When counting to the hour we count how many intervals of 5 there is to o’clock.


The small hand on the clock counts the hours and is called the hour hand.

The big hand on the clock counts the minutes and is called the minute hand.

We are going to look now at the minutes to the hour.


If the hour hand (small hand) is in between the 12 and 1 on the clock this shows us it is 12o’clock.

If the number of minutes past the hour is more than 30, we say how many minutes to the next hour.

So instead of saying '50 minutes past 3 o’clock' we say ‘10 to 4’.



Let’s look at another example. If the hour hand (small hand) is pointing between the 12 and the 1, the hour is moving towards the one.

If the minute hand (large hand) is on the 9 this is 15 minutes to.

There are 3 x 5 minute intervals before o’clock do 3 x 5 =15. We also say this is quarter to.

Now we would like you to have a go at the time questions on the class page. If you finish these before Maths is over please go on to Mathletics and practise 5 minute intervals to half past.


10.55 – 11.10



11.10 – 11.35

Times table Practise


Today we would like you to go to the link below and play ‘Mental Maths Train. Remember to concentrate on your 2, 5 and 10 times tables and that you are confident before moving on to any of the other ones.


11.35 – 12.25



In English today we are going to carry on with our Talk for Writing on ‘The Magical Teaching Box.’

I have attached the booklet to the class page for today. We are going to start by looking at page 17.

Let’s look at what 8 things we would include in our own magic box. These can be objects, people, animals or places that are special to you.


For example,

I would include:

My daughter (people)

My husband (people)

St Lucia (place)

New York (place)

Wedding ring (object)

Photographs of my family (objects)

My Mum and Dad (people)

My Dog (animals)


Once you have written your list we would like you to listen to the poem The Magic Box by Kit Wright.

Then you are going to turn to page 16 and design your own magic box. You could use a shoe box or just draw and label it. It is up to you. This magic box design will help us begin to write our poem on Wednesday.


12.25 – 1.25



1.25 – 2.05 (this task will continue at 2.20)



Today in Art we are going to finish our Chinese wall hanging.

Using the spider diagram of ideas you created two weeks ago and your name in Chinese last week, we would like you to design and draw your own wall hanging.


You might want to put your name in the middle in Chinese and then draw items that remind you of China around it, for example the Great Wall of China.


Once you have designed your wall hanging you can then colour it in. Remember they use a lot of red and gold in their art work.


We have put some ideas of wall hanging on our class page along with the Chinese alphabet.
