# P3MB Friday 27.11.20

Hello everyone

This is what we have been learning this week:

NUMERACY AND MATHS

Our mental maths warm ups have included using different subtraction strategies.

We have continued to learn about time this week and our focus has been linking analogue times to their digital equivalent.

We counted in fives and linked that to a clock face to help us remember:

60 minutes = 1 hour

30 minutes = half an hour

15 minutes = quarter of an hour

45 minutes = three quarters of an hour

Our written work involved writing times on analogue and digital clock faces.

Some of us challenged ourselves with word problems involving time.

THINGS TO DO AT HOME

Keep talking about time with your child, look for digital times around the house. A number of children found quarter to in digital time challenging. Count in fives around the clock face to help them think about minutes.

LITERACY

We wrote about a personal experience or event to help us put full stops in the correct place.

In grammar work we discussed putting a or an in front of a word and the reasons for this.

THINGS TO DO AT HOME

Ask your child to explain when we use a and when we use an. You could put some words in a pile, ask your child to read each one and decide whether an or a should go in front.

We were practising writing f cursively this week. Many of us found this tricky. You could practise forming f correctly at home.

We watched the Green Cross Code video and practised crossing safely in the playground as part of our outdoor learning.

MUSIC

We started reading The Nutcracker and listened to the Dance of the sugar Plum Fairy by Tchaikovsky.

ART

We spoke about the trees being stripped of their leaves and how you could see the different sizes of branches more clearly now. We sketched some of the trees in our woods trying to draw the way the branches grew.

PE

We are continuing to improve fitness levels through running and games.

HANGING DECORATIONS

Thanks so much to everyone who made a hanging decoration for us, they are so imaginative and creative. Our classroom is looking very festive now. Further contributions still very welcome.

Have a lovely weekend,
