Wednesday 23rd November – P1

Snack and water bottles

Please provide your child with a small snack and water bottle every day including Fridays as we do not have spare snacks.

Please note that fruit juice cartons and flavoured milk are not recommended. If you would like your child to have a carton of milk, please sign up through parent pay.

Take a moment

Our next Building Resilience topic is Take a Moment. Please see the information below.


Our new Maths topic is Time.

The outcome that we will be aiming for is to… Be aware of how routines and events in the world link with times and seasons, and to explore ways to record and display these using clocks, calendars and other methods.

We start with asking what phrases, objects or words we know…

  • “Enough time”, Mustapha
  • “One at a time”, Zoe
  • “Time for School”, Mohamed
  • “Cleaning your mess takes a long time”, Aiden
  • “10 o’clock”, Mohamed
  • “Watch” Sidrah
  • “Birthday, when I’m 5, then I’m 6…” Aiden
  • “In daytime I play with friends” Mustapha
  • What happens at night-time? “Hedgehogs, foxes, owls, Harry Potter fighting Voldemort” Aiden and Mustapha
  • “It is 9:59. One minute until 10 o’clock” Daniel

We covered what creates daytime and nighttime

…and brought in a dark tent and torch to move Pudsey into daytime and nighttime on the Earth.

Clock Work

To help space out the numbers when writing a clock, we write the 12, 6, 3 and 9 first, then fill in the missing numbers. We are writing and reading o’clock times on digital and analogue clocks.

Have a go at playing this o’clock matching game
