Week beginning: 04.01.21

Theme:  New Year




This week we are learning to:

To tell the time.

To learn the days of the week and months of the year fluently.


This week we are going to focus on learning about time! You will be assigned three activities throughout the week.


Wednesday – Look at your first ‘time’ activity on Seesaw. We would like you to first remind yourself of the days of week and the months of the year. If you aren’t sure of them, you could make yourself a poster to display in your bedroom. Then complete the challenges and make your own clock to help you with the activities for Thursday and Friday. Look at the slides on Seesaw to help you with this.


Thursday – Look at your ‘Day 2 time activity’ on Seesaw. First you will need to make labels for your clock that you made in yesterday’s activity and then write the times for the clocks on the template attached to the activity.


Friday - We will be recapping our learning from this week. Then you will need to match the correct time to the clock or you will be assigned an activity where you will have to work out durations of time using your knowledge that you have learnt this week.

This week we are learning to: sequence an event using a beginning, middle and ending.


This week we would like you to tell us about one of your favourite days from the Christmas break!



We would like you to think back to your Christmas holiday/ break and think of a few of your favourite days! Can you make a mind map of these favourite days, outlining what you did, who you did it with and how it made you feel?



 Using your mind map of your favourite days, pick ONE day to focus on. Was it a day you stayed up late? Was it a family film day? Whatever it was, I’d like you to now make a story board of your special day. You will need to draw pictures of what you did in the day and using full sentences, write down what is happening in the picture. Once you have completed your story board, you could write down a list of adjectives to describe the events of the day/ how you felt.



Now that we have done the preparation; I would love for you to write a recount or diary entry of your favourite day. Remember to use full stops, finger spaces, capital letters! Try your best to use connectives and adjectives!
