Today’s Time Table
Times Tables Rock Stars result!
Well, we put you guys to the test yesterday morning with your times tables. A battle between the Year 3 and Year 4 class went down a treat. You couldn’t make up the result… A DRAW!!! The chances of a draw is really slim and it’s only right that we have ANOTHER battle later in the week so stay tuned!
Maths: Analogue and digital times
Today, we are going to be converting the time from digital clocks to analogue time. You will be using the words:
o’clock (if the digital time ends in :00)
quarter past (if the digital time ends in :15)
half past (if the digital time ends in :30)
quarter to (if the digital time ends in :45)
First, let’s see if we can match the digital time to the correct analogue time. We are going to use IXL again but we now have an account to sign into:
You will need to type the correct one of these in today’s second challenge so have a quick practise at spelling them correctly!!!
Yesterday we looked at using time fronted adverbials to use in our sentences about trains and train timetables. Today we will be looking at conjunctions in a sentence as part of our recap of literacy skills this week!
Here are some slides with a focus on conjunctions:
Can you complete the worksheet below either in your book or on the sheet?
For an extra challenge, could you try to include some of the time fronted adverbials into your sentences that we looked at using on Monday? Look back at the Monday page on the blog if you need a little recap on this.
Remember to make your handwriting as neat as possible as we will be looking out for people for pen licenses when we return back to school!
The Tube Map
You’ve just found out all about the genius design that is the London Underground map! Well, we would like this to inspire to design your own Birdwell Line. What stops will you include? What are the important stations?
Now, what other lines can you add to your map that cross the Birdwell line? Could you add in a Hobby line? Where the stations are the different activities you do! Maybe some of your activities are the same as you do at school, such as football. This may mean that you have a station called Football Field where both lines cross! This may mean that you have more than 1 station where the Hobby Line and the Birdwell Line cross! All of a sudden, the Birdwell line might need to have twists and turns in it!
The more lines you add to your map, the more stations will overlap and the more complicated it will get! Here are some suggestions of other lines you could add…
- The family line
- The hobby line
- The healthy line
- The treat line
- You could even do different train lined for each member of your family and the points that they cross are the things you like to do together and the stations on their own are things that they do without the rest of you.
This is a very creative and imaginative activity. We want to get you thinking about things that are important to you and others in your home. It’s also nice to start thinking about some of the things we are looking forward to after lockdown!!!
You will keep thinking of new things as you go and keep changing your mind about where things need to go so do a few rough versions before you do the best one in your Topic book.
We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with…
