Hello again year 4 (and parents),
This week it’s all about mythical monsters!
Other reading opportunities
Chapters 4, 5 and 6 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone are now available at the Hogwarts at Home hub.
All the talks from the Hay Festival are available on the Hay Player. Watch talks by lots of great children’s authors and be inspired!
This week we’re continuing to think about time.
The year 4 expectation is that children are taught to read, write and convert time between analogue and digital 12 and 24 hour clocks. If your child is not yet confident telling the time on an analogue clock (one with hands), it is going to be difficult for them to reach the year 4 expectation. Now is an ideal time to practise telling the time with them at home. It is a life skill that all children need to learn and is best practised on a daily basis. Please talk about what time the clock shows during the day and there are also lots of online games and apps available which could help with further practice.
Choose a level of activity to suit your child. Don’t try to work straight through it all! Lots of practice at the right level is more beneficial than a quick rush through!
1. Telling the time to 1 minute intervals.
2. Converting between digital and analogue times.
3. Introducing the 24hr clock.
4. Using 12hr and 24hr times on analogue and digital clocks.
Work through the activities on the powerpoint and then try the activity sheet.
