We’ve been looking at Time in our Maths sessions, and will be continuing in some sessions this week. Here’s a site which has some great links for time activities online. Have a go and add your comments about the activities to the post as comments. What top tips do you have for working out a time? What about digital or 24hr clocks?

As a result of all the snow we’re closed today. After you’ve made snowmen and thrown snowballs, what next? You could rehearse your part of the assembly. We’ll be practising more tomorrow, but any rehearsing of lines you could do will help.
In addition, why not create a poster advertising Barcombe as a Winter holiday location. Perhaps take photos and think of a snowy slogan, or pretend that you could do cross-country skiing through Knowlands Wood! Try to be imaginative and remember that advertising is often about exaggerating the truth! Alternatively, draw a picture of the scene outside your bedroom window.
Fancy a maths challenge? Why not measure the distance between your family’s footsteps in the snow! Who has the longest? Or try the spicy maths challenge linked to the picture.
Well done. You collected some great advert examples for your home learning task last week and we’ve been using them in class this week to develop our understanding of persuasive texts.
The holiday home learning task has two parts. The first is all about shape and the idea of symmetry. I want you investigate which letters have lines of symmetry? Look at the letter A next to the text. Can you see the line of symmetry down the middle? But which other letters in the alphabet have lines of symmetry? If you are confused about symmetry, have a watch of the video linked here.
The second task is to have a go producing a poster advertising a place you visit during the holiday. Think about a snappy slogan and using bright bold lettering. Use adverts around your house to help inspire you.
Home Learning this week is all about advertising. I want you to look around your home and collect examples of adverts. Bring them in to school, as we’re going to be using them next week to develop our understanding of what makes a good advert and how we can be persuasive writers.
In addition, we’ve been looking at addition and subtraction this week. Why not have a go at these money based problems. You can choose your level, then answer the questions.
