Hello Robins and Pareants/carers.


Here is a picture of me and one of my 3 dogs, his name is 'Tereno' and he always cheers me up when I have been feeling sad. Do you have any pets and what has been making you smile over the past few weeks?

Well as another week of lockdown begins we continue our learning at home. We are still missing everyone very much, so many of you will have grown in many ways over the last few weeks. Keep up the hard work and make sure you are having lots of fun. 


Mr Grimshaw will be telephoning parents and children on Wednesday just to see how you all are and have a chat. 


Todays learning will consist of learning a new sound in phonics, listening to a new story and looking at some different o'clock times. 



Watch Mr. Thorne and Geraldine learning the new sound 'ur' and see if you can sound out the words with them.

Now use what you know about the sound 'or' that you learnt last wekk and the new sound 'ur' to sound out and write the correct words for these pictures. If you find it tricky then you can find the words at the bottom to help you. The use one of the words to write a sentence, try and include an adjective (a word that describes another word) for example huge, round, strong. 


Now watch this video of the story 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird' by Eric Carle. Eric Carle is an author that we may know as he also writes the book 'The Hungry Caterpillar'. Both these books are about minibeasts. Once youve listened to the story have a chat with you mum, dad or other adult about your favourite part of the story. Can you retell the story in your own words? Why do you think the ladybird is bad tempered? Did you hear any words in the story that told us what time it was?

Now that you have read the story of 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird' we would like you to explore time. In the story we heard about different times of the day... 1 O'Clock, 2 O'Clock etc. But how do we know what time it is? how do we read the time? Well we are going to find out all about O'Clock.  Firstly you need to know that the clock has a face (the part with all the numbers on) and it also has two hands, one long hand and one short hand. When the long hand is pointing to the number 12 it is O'Clock and we know which O'Clock it is by looking at the short hand. So if the short hand is pointing to 1 and the long hand is point to 12, it is 1 O'Clock. 


Now watch the video and see if you can learn all the O'Clock times and then complete the task by drawing your own clocks and labelling them with the correct O'Clcok times. 


Can you write down the times shown on each of the clocks?



Can you draw a clock and draw the hands in the correct place to show the correct time?
