11.5.20- Work for the Week

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well and have enjoyed your Bank Holiday.

This week, in Maths, I thought we would look at time (o’clock and half past).

I have included 5 steps for this week, one for each day.

Step 1- Make your own clock.

At this stage, children need to know that a clock turns clockwise and be able to turn clockwise and anti-clockwise themselves.

Step 2- Telling the time to the hour.

You can use the guidance in Step 1 to help with telling the time to the hour. This does take a lot of patience- the main advice I can give is it takes children a lot of practise and encouragement!

Step 3- Telling the time to the hour (extended).

Step 4- Telling the time to the half hour.

Step 5- Telling the time to the half hour.

I have set Mathletics tasks related to this also.

Telling the time games- some of these are very challenging!


In English, we are going to be looking at comprehension skills. Around this time of year, we introduce the Comprehension Canines of which there are 5. This week, we will be looking at ‘Rex Retriever’ and ‘Iggy Inference’. These activities can be spread out throughout the week. In addition to this, I have included a question mat that you can use when you are reading with your child.

In addition to this, I would like you to have a go at these Phase 5 home learning tasks.


For your wider curriculum task, I would like you to research a famous artist or painting. I would then like you to recreate it. If you are looking for some examples, please look at the Year 5 blog. There are some excellent examples! It looked so much fun, I thought we just had to give it a go. You can use objects, people, photo editing software and apps to achieve your final piece! Please submit them to me by sending them to my e-mail: year1@standrews323.herts.sch.uk. I will put up the entries on a blog post next week.

Have a lovely week,

Miss Muncey
