Today’s Time Table
- Maths – Time
- Literacy – Persuasive writing – asking the right questions
- Topic 1: Automobile timeline
- Topic 2: Where in the World?
This morning, is the first session in telling the time. Over the course of the week, we will be developing our knowledge of time and building up to reading time tables in week two.
Today, we are going to start basic and tell the time to the hour, half past the hour and draw hands on a clock face to show these times.
We will go through this work in our live Team this morning.
Literacy Asking the right question
One of the tricks used yesterday, in the advert for the Monster Truck, was asking the reader questions. This makes the reader feel like you are talking to them and makes them feel involved. It also gives you the chance to get them to think about how good it would be if they agreed with you!
Here are some examples of adverts that ask a question…
Activity: Asking the right question can really engage your reader. Here are some products that I would like you to come up with questions to ask your reader, that we could use to lead into a paragraph of writing.
I’ve done a few examples for you…
Topic 1 Automobile timeline
Cars have not always looked like the ones you see on the roads today! I love messing around with old cars (you may even recognise my helper in the second picture…helping eat sweets by the look of him) and have always driven older cars…and that usually means having to do lots of work on them. I am always in trouble at home for sneaking off to the garage to have a tinker. My family think I’m mad but there is something really appealing about seeing how far cars have changed and improved even just in my lifetime! Here are some pics of me with some of the “old bangers” I’ve enjoyed building over the years.
Can you put the pictures of cars from different eras in the order you think they were made? Earliest to latest. Can you spot any of my cars in the mix? Which one would be the one you would choose to own?
Topic 2 Where in the World?
Take a look at the car manufacturer logos below…
How many do you recognise? Are there any you don’t know?
How many of the home country of these manufacturers can you identify? Can you add them to the World map below?
Try the quiz again from yesterday, see how many more of these brand locations you now know.
(Or a completely different one if you want to challenge yourself!)
How many British brands did you spot? There are lots of car companies from the U.K. We should be very proud of our motoring heritage. What can you find out about and present in your topic books, about car-making in the UK? You can use 2 pages for your information and keep adding to this piece of work through the week. Let’s really show off those handwriting and presentation skills!
