This week is national poetry week. Your English tasks this week will all be about writing different styles of poetry e.g. acrostic, limericks, haikus and shape poems.
Wednesday 25th March 2020
LO: To identify and discuss the structure of poetry in order to plan and write their own. (Shape Poetry)
Shape Poems are fun poems that are written around a theme. They are written to resemble the shape of the theme of the poem.
When writing shape poetry you need to remember:
- shape poems describe an object, person or animal and the words of the poem form the shape of the object, person or animal being described.
- shape poetry doesn’t have to rhyme.
- try to include alliteration and similes in my poem.
Look at the powerpoint below then try to write you own shape poem. Please send any complete poems to email@example.com and they may be included in this week's newsletter!
Mathematics- Friday 27th March 2020
Choose one of the activities below:
Time - matching digital to analogue
Maths activity mat - variety of different challenges.
Number detective - Can you solve the problems?
Maths- Thursday 26th March 2020
LO: Telling the time to five minutes.
Set up a large clock face on the floor/ground, numbered 1 to 12 in a circle, plus 5-minute cards below each hour number (5 past to 55 past)
Print and cut up the time cards on the resource sheet provided. Alternatively, read them out, one at a time
Pick a card at random
Make the time by using a jumper (or asking a partner to lie down) as the hour hand on your clock face, pointing from the centre of the clock, and arms stretched out. You lie down and be the minute hand
Ask an adult to check the time on the clock is correct
Continue until you have made all the times on all the cards.
Swap roles with a few of the cards, so that you are the hour hand and someone else, or your jumper, is the minute hand.
This week we are learning about time, you will learn the relationships between the units of time, and other key vocabulary involving time.
You will learn to tell the time (including on clocks where the numbers are Roman numerals) and on digital clocks, using 12 and 24 hour clock notation.
We will be looking at daily routines and time frames, which ties in perfectly with working out you new time table for home learning!
Wednesday 25th March 2020
LO: Tell and write the time from an analogue clock.
Look at the powerpoint to discuss what you already know about time and find out more about 5 minute intervals on an analogue clock.
Then please complete the sheet below in your Home Learning journal. Remember to number your answers.
