Learning together at home 25.3.20

Good morning everyone

Below you will find your numeracy and literacy tasks for today and tomorrow morning.  I have kept the learning grid attached just in case you didn’t see it yesterday. This has lots of tasks covering other subject areas.  We recommend that you try one or two of these tasks to complete each day.

Here is the learning grid for you to download.

Last week we started to look at Time as our new maths subject. Today we will begin by working on prior learning, we thought it would be useful to look at how people plan their lives using times and dates. Below are some activities for you to complete.  Some of these activities involve working with an adult.

Here is a link to a game with calendars for practice


Time Facts

Come up with interesting facts that you already know about time using appropriate vocabulary (for example second, minute, hour, day, week, weekend, fortnight, month, season, year, leap year, time zone, decade, century, millennium).  You could create a time facts poster in your jotter, remember the steps to being successful at this, for example using headings – sub headings, bold colours etc.

Different Days

Specify a day and a date in a calendar month and ask children to work out the day of another date. For example, If the 3rd of May is a Tuesday, what day is the 20th?

How old are you?

You could work out roughly how many days old you are. Remember that there are 7 days in a week and 52 weeks in a year. Try this using your multiplication and addition skills. You can use a calculator to check your answer. Choose whether you investigate leap years or not as part of your calculations. You could work with an adult and find out the age of other family members or find out dates of birth of famous people online.

Extension – If your parent remembers the time you were born, you could extend to working out how many hours, minutes or seconds old you are.

Keep practising your 6 x table and division switchers so it becomes even more automatic, why not play hit the button with your parents. Here is the link.




Today for your main literacy task I would like you to use the visualiser sheet that was in your pack. Please pick an important or interesting part of your reading that was due for today and illustrate your idea of what it could look like followed by a description. Your learning intention is below.
