Phonics: In phonics this week, we are looking at the ‘i’ sound.  It can be spelt in different ways.  These include i, ui, e, y.


We are looking at The Smeds and the Smoos in Literacy. There are lots of aliens in this book! Can you draw some aliens (these could be characters in the book or different aliens) and name them with as many ‘i’ sounds as you can think of? Don’t forget alien names can be silly names! For example ‘Pimpet’ or ‘Mypsy’.


Maths: Count forwards and backwards in 3’s starting from 0.

  • We know that when the minute hand (the long hand) is on the 12 and the hour hand is on a number the time is ‘o’clock’.
  • We know that when the minute hand (the long hand) is on the 6 the time is ‘half past’ the hour and the hour hand will be half way past the hour number.
  • We know that the minute hand will be on the 3 when the time is quarter past the hour and the hour (shorter hand) will be just past the hour number. (Not quite half way past).

Can you remember when the hands are for quarter to the hour? That’s right. The minute hand (the long hand) is pointing to the 9 and the hour hand will be pointing just before the next hour. (For example, when the time is quarter to 6 the minute hand will be pointing to 9 and the hour hound will be just before the 6.)

Watch the video below for a lesson on telling the time to quarter to.


Activity 1 – Have a go at the task sheet attached.

Activity 2 – Draw a set of clocks on some paper/card. Draw your own times on the cards (include o’clock times, half past, quarter past and quarter to. On a second set of cards write the times to match the clocks you have drawn. Have a go at playing a game of matching pairs or a game of snap! You could play both!


Say your playground promise and sit and have a snack outside. 


This week we are exploring different characters. We are looking closely at the books written by the author Julia Donaldson. Have you read any other books by Julia Donaldson? (Zog was a focus for home learning a few weeks ago.) Today I would like you to create a Mind-map of any characters you can think of which are in any of Julia Donaldson Books. Write their names and a brief description. Decide which is your favourite character? Why is that your favourite character?



Wash your hands and help your grown up to prepare your lunch.



Have a go at drawing or painting your favourite character from Literacy. You can use any media you would like. This could include collage also to add texture to your artwork.
