Monday Challenge – we are learning to use a calendar.


The Romans named June after Juno, an ancient Roman goddess.

Task– use the calendar to find the answers.

What will the date be 2 weeks today?                                                                                                          How many Tuesdays will there be in June?                                                                                                 If Tom’s Birthday is two weeks on Thursday, what date will that be?                                                     Our Summer holiday begins on the 26th of June. What day will that be?                                              Anna’s birthday is on the 14th of June. Which day of the week will that be?

Now, write down 3 more questions that you can find the answers to, using the calendar.
