Maths - Time

Have you been thinking about time recently?

You could have look around your home to find various devices to tell the time. What could you use? A phone? A clock?

In year 3, we are looking at analogue clocks - these have hands and faces.

You could make a timetable of your day, drawing the clocks for certain times. Think about:

  • What time do you get up in the morning?
  • What time is lunch time?

If you have a paper plate you could try making your own clock!

Writing - The Robot Maker

 

You could have a look at this picture and think about:

  • What does this robot do?
  • Is the man building it or repairing it?
  • How does he feel about it? Is this one special?
  • Do you think he’s been a robot maker for a long time?
  • Is he good at his job?
  • What kind of person do you think he is? What are his likes/dislikes? Do you think he prefers to be around people, or be alone?

You could even use this picture to help you to write an interesting story about a robot maker and his robot!

Don't forget to share any work you've done with us on Twitter @GreenwaysPri
