Please can you send me your report about your African animal and your art work from today. Please could you add a little message to let me know how you are getting on with telling the time. 

Information For Our Focus Day Next Monday
Mrs Patrick has planned our focus day and one of the CHOICE activities will be baking! She has given you the links below to lots of cake recipes from the 'Phunky Foods' website, so you can get the ingredients beforehand if you wish to bake! You can of course use your own recipes but why not try a new healthier recipe instead!  The phunky foods website has a great range of recipes and meal ideas, have a search through the recipe section and try some out at home!

If you have time listen to Miss Wilkinson's story ....


Today I would like you to spend some time finishing off your report about your animal. Please can you send me a photo of your completed report.


Time: telling the time to 5 minutes

Please watch the video. Download the clock from the file list underneath before you begin the lesson. Then last of all complete the activity. We will continue this objective on Monday, so don't worry if your child is struggling with this to begin with.

Writing: Non-chronological report

Today I would like you to use your notes that you have made about your African animal, to begin to write your report. 

Remember to include the following:
Facts that are written in the present tense.
Include photos that are linked to your sentences
Extend your sentences by using conjunctions.


You should have thought of 5 sub-headings yesterday, so do the introduction and the first two

subheadings and then leave the other sub headings until tomorrow. You should have collected some

photographs yesterday to use in your writing.


If you are unsure, read the reports I have uploaded about Giraffes and Crocodiles. This should remind

you how to set out your report and give you a few ideas.

Time: O'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to times    (recap)

I would like you to use the lesson today to revisit what we have learnt in the first two lessons. 

I have uploaded some matching cards for you to use. You can cut the cards out, separate them into clocks and written times and then match the written times to the clock.

You can also play snap with the cards

I would also like you to spend some time practicing reading different times by playing this game online:
