# Wednesday

## Good morning Troughton class!

I had some lovely emails yesterday and hope to see some more today at our class email:
troughton@greenfield.walsall.sch.uk

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I hope you were able to fill the gaps in your reading learning yesterday! Today's reading will use the same information text but you will be choosing the correct answer from different options.

## Maths: Red, Orange, Yellow and Green groups

Today we are going to move on to start to read the time.
We will be looking at o’clock and half-past times today.

Remember the minute hand is the longer one and when it is on the 12 it is an o’clock time. The hour hand is the shorter hand and points at what hour it is when it is an o’clock time.
Reading half-past times are a little trickier. The minute hand will always be on the 6 when it is a half-past time, the hour hand will be in between two numbers. If it was half past 1 the hour hand would be between the 1 and the 2 as it is on its way to 2 o’clock.

## Maths: Blue group

Today we are going to be adding equal groups. This is the same as the repeated addition we did a few weeks ago, it is good to revisit learning, it helps us to remember these skills.

Remember that 2 + 2 + 2 can also be written as 3 x 2 because there are 3 lots of 2.

## Literacy: All groups

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to look at a book that has a hero in it who is ready to save the day!

First we are going to find out about superheroes. There are many fictional superheroes that you see in comics and in films. Can you name any?

A hero does not just have to be fictional. They can be ordinary people who do amazing things for other people and make a difference.

Blue and Red groups – First test your superhero knowledge and match the name to the correct superhero. Then read the information about the superhero in the middle of the page and answer the questions about it.
