Tues 9th


Today we are moving on to calculate the duration (how long something takes).


(It is important to remember that when we add times that we can't use our column addition because that only works when we are using 1's 10's,100's and 1000's, but when we are working with time, we have 60 seconds, 60 minutes and 24 hours and it won't work because we are not always counting up to 10!)


Please login to your MyMaths and select the task that has been set for you called 'Time Between', then complete the lesson and the homework task.



Our Grammar work this week depends on whether you have the red grammar book (Group 1) or the green grammar book (Group 2).



Group 1 are continuing their work at looking at paragraphing and when we start a new paragraph. Last week was about paragraphs in non fiction and this week it paragraphs in stories and accounts. Remember, we change paragraphs when there is a new event or a change in time or place. When we start a new paragraph we often use a phrase or an adverb to show that we have changed, such as 'After a while', 'When we got there' or 'Eventually'. When we start a sentence with one of these, they are called 'fronted adverbials' and we need to use a comma after them.


After a while, we arrived at the station.

When we got there, we had an ice cream.

Eventually, we got to go into the museum.

Group 2 are looking at 'Longer noun phrases'. This is were we add more description and information about the object that we are writing about.

This week we are starting a series of lessons in PSHE called 'CHIPS' which is about including everyone and making them feel welcome in our school and our lives


First of all, look at this picture and think about the different children you can see on the playground. I wonder what each of them are feeling?

I would now like you to watch the following clip, a story called 'This is Our House', which you might have read or heard when you were a little younger? Think about the feelings of the children in the story as you hear it.

This is Our House by Michael Rosen

This is "This is Our House by Michael Rosen" by Candlewick Press on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

George gives many reasons as to why children are not allowed in his house. Think about what they are.

George is being what we call discriminatory. That means that he is choosing something which is different about somebody and not treating them fairly because of it.


George makes the other children feel like outsiders and thinks it is 'ok' until they do it to him and he realises how he has been treating the others and it feels.


It's not nice to feel like an outsider (someone who is not let in or accepted by others). We want our school to be a place where everyone is accepted for who they are and there are no outsiders and no discrimination.


Create a poster called 'This is Our School' which can welcome people as they arrive. On it write who is welcome in our school. Think about groups of people and types of people that are welcome. Perhaps you could also write some statements such as 'We believe...' or 'Your child should come here because...'
