I hope you have had a good weekend despite the miserable rainy weather! Are you ready for a new week of learning? I am! Your Science learning today looks really fun! I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to send me an email to say hello or to send me some pictures of your super learning: email@example.com
I had some great ones last week! I am still so proud of all of you who are completing your learning, trying your best and listening to your grownups, well done!
For reading this week I have chosen a non-fiction text from my ninja book (those of you in my reading group know which book I'm talking about!) and we will spend the week completing different reading questions about the same text. The non-fiction text is all about the United Kingdom. I hope you enjoy learning some new facts or reminding yourself of things you already knew! Today's questions are matching ones. If you cannot print out then just write the words beside each other that go together.
We are continuing our learning on measurement this week.
This week we will be looking more closely at time!
Today we are going to compare and sequence intervals of time!
To start our learning today have a go at the ordering task below:
Did you order the times correctly?
Here are the answers:
second, minute, hour, day, week, month & year
Here is some information to help you with your learning today.
There are 60 seconds in 1 minute.
There are 60 minutes in 1 hour.
There are 24 hours in 1 day.
There are 7 days in 1 week.
There are usually 30 or 31 days in a month except in February where there is normally 28 days (apart from leap years like this year where there were 29 days!)
There are 365 days in a year, (or 366 when in a leap year like this year).
There are 12 months in 1 year.
For your first activity you need to match the time sentences to the time periods.
After that you will be comparing time periods to say which amount of time is the shortest or longest.
Today you are going to be counting in 10s. Watch this video to remind you how to do this!
Today you are going to practise using conjunctions.
We use conjunctions (joining words) to join sentences.
A useful joining word is and.
Mum made a cake. She put it in the oven.
You can make one sentence by using and.
You need one capital letter and one full stop.
Mum made a cake and she put it in the oven.
Look at the power point to find out more about using and to join words and sentences together.

If something contracts it gets smaller.
Contractions are words that are smaller.
I am sorry I’m sorry
I have lost a book. I’ve lost a book.
Watch the video to learn more about contractions.

When you have finished there is a challenge! Rewrite the sentences using contractions.
Last week you carried out a science experiment to see which materials were waterproof.
Today I would like you to find out more about different materials. You will need a grown up to help you.
My question today is: Which materials are absorbent?
See if you can get a dry sponge. What happens when you put the sponge in water?
Now watch this video to find out about the word absorb.
Now I would like you test some different materials to find out which will absorb water and which will not.
Here is a list of objects you could test. cotton wool, fabric, foil, plastic toy, cardboard, kitchen towel, fork, pencil, paper
You can choose which ones to test. You might even test some other things that are not on the list. Remember to always ask a grown up first!
Put one object in a bowl of water and see if it absorbs water. Sort the objects into two piles. Those that are absorbent (soak up water) Those that are non-absorbent (do not soak up water)
After, record what you have found out on the recording sheet.
