Friday 14th June

In class you have been learning to tell the time using analogue, digital and 24 hour clocks. Please use the sheet of clock faces to create a timetable of a typical day making sure you write the time in 24 hour time as well as drawing the hands on the clock faces and writing the time in words (e.g. quarter past 8, 08:15 ). It can be a weekday or a weekend day. You can illustrate the different events if you wish.

Please login to the system at www.mathletics.co.uk, to access the tasks set for your child. Your child’s personal username and password are stuck into the front of their reading diaries.

Studies have proved that children who engage regularly with Mathletics do significantly better in heir assessments, so please take advantage of this wonderful tool. If you encourage your child to complete more tasks and they gain a certificate these will be awarded in our Key Stage Assembly on Thursdays.

Reading: In school we regularly talk to your child about their reading and monitor their engagement using our AR system which helps us to ensure that your children are reading regularly at home as well as at

school. Please help your child by listening to them read, discussing the stories and by making time to discuss any unfamiliar words they come across with you.
