Our maths lessons have continued to be focused on telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. We have also been learning about duration of time and solved some simple problems, such as, “Advait goes to the park at 10 minutes past 2. He spends 20 minutes there. What time does Advait leave the park?”. Please talk to your child and ask them questions about time regularly, as this will help them to deepen their understanding of this complex area of maths. Some games we like to play in class to support our learning can be found via the following link: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?q=time
We are really enjoying our computing lessons at the moment because we are learning how to make our own computer games using computer code! This week, we were learning how to use the ‘repeat’ command. Remember that pupils can access PurpleMash from home, should your child wish to have a go over the weekend. In class, we have been using ‘Free Code Chimp’ on PurpleMash.
