This week we will begin learning the story ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker. This is a lovely wordless tale which offers lots of discussion around moving on and provides lots of opportunity to be creative. Where would a magic crayon take you?

We will be orally retelling the story, writig speech bubbles to go alongside the story and then mapping the story.

We are going into our second week of focusing on telling the time.
This week we are focusing on:
-Telling the time to the nearest hour using o’clock on an analogue clock.
-Telling the time to the nearest half hour using ‘o’clock’ and ‘half past’ on an analogue clock.
-Using the vocabularly minute hand, hour hand, o’clock and half past.
-Exploring the difference between hours, minutes and seconds and knowing which is the longest/shortest unit of time.

Supporting at home

A lot of houses these days don’t have analogue clocks; it would be really benficail if your child had a analogue watch that they could practise telling the time with at home.#

Also please supoprt by talking to your child about different times of the day that things happen. What time do you have dinner? What time do you go to bed/get up?
