'With Jesus, we learn as a joyful family and flourish to be the best that we can be'

# Monday 25th January

Good morning,

Welcome to the start of a new week.  I hope that you are all well.  Thank you for sending pictures of your work last week, it is lovely to see how hard you are all working and seeing you trying hard.

Remember that you can email me on Purple Mash if you need help or to check anything.

:)

Next Steps: Use our No Nonsense spelling methods to practise this weeks words - these are the last words on the sheet.

This week we are going to be looking at time. We will be revisiting analogue time which we have already looked at in class and moving on to other time objectives during the week.

Remember our previous learning to help, and also that you can annotate (write around) the clock faces to help.

The analogue clock face is split into 2: 'to' on the left hand side and 'past' on the right.

The numbers on the clock face are the hours

On the clock face when you write the minutes they should be symmetrical: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 then back to 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 0

The minute hand is the bigger hand (remember the word minute is bigger and the hand is bigger) so has a bigger job - it tells us the side of the clock (to/past) and the minute it is pointing to.

The hour hand is the smaller hand (remember the word hour is smaller and the hand is smaller) so it has a smaller job - it tells you the hour it is going to/or the hour it has just gone past (depending on what side of the clock the minute hand is on)

Remember the hour hand slowly moves between two hours as the minute hand moves around the full clock face, so if you are drawing an hour time take care that you are accurate.

Today we will be starting our new unit which is Poetry.  The poet we are going to be looking at is John Lyons. We will be watching clips of him reading poems.
