The poems that Allan Ahlberg writes use a common feature in poetry: rhyme. Rhyme is one of the ways that the poems become fun to read! If words rhyme, they sometimes have the same spelling pattern. Today's spelling activity focuses on some of these types of words and have been taken from the year 3 spelling patterns. Open the activity below. Remember that you can copy the tables into your books.
Maths- Time- Hours in a day
There are 24 hours in a day. Look at the picture to see when noon, midday and midnight are.
Work through the powerpoint then answer the questions.
Using the following movements, can you create your own relay race?
In a space in your house (or outside if you have a garden), make a circuit and decide how many of each jump or movement you need to do and where you will do each one. When you have finished, time yourself completing your circuit. How long did it take?
Challenge yourself to try it again – can you complete it faster?
Could you challenge a member of your family to complete your circuit? Don’t forget to time them too!
