  • Maths - New topic - Telling the time – How long is 1 minute? What can you do in a minute? How many times can you write ‘bug’? How many jumps/skips… can you do in 1 minute?
  • Can you order time? - How many seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour, hours in a day, days in a week…month, year, decade. Which is longest/shortest?
  • Writing – Think about our class reader ‘The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark’ and have a go at writing a description of Plop and his family and where they live (the setting). You could write about Plop meeting the different people and what happened. Check you writing carefully. Have you used adjectives? Is handwriting neat and joined? Have you used the past tense correctly? Can you draw Plop’s family and where they live?
  • Reading –There are some free ebooks from Oxford. Try the link to access them.

Texts could include the Jill Tomlinson collection. Wild by Emily Hughes was going to be the final book this half term. It’s an interesting take on the Jungle Book idea. Lots of inference opportunities if it’s read together and paused to think about what’s happening and why it’s happening.

  • D.T./science –Bug Hotels – see website photos. Can you describe the bug hotel that you made in the school garden? What materials did you use? What did you include to attract minibeasts? Has it been successful yet? Draw your bug hotel. You could have a go at making one in your own garden and record who moves in.
  • Science ‘Habitats’– check out

You can find out about different habitats and food chains. Create a model/draw a habitat. Working Scientifically – Can you find out what’s living around your home? Can you identify any minibeast? You could photograph or draw them then do some research about them and the habitat.
