L.O. To understand what a second is

Watch the clip below to find out more about seconds.

After, see if you can estimate one minute by counting '1 elephant, 2 elephants, etc, ' How accurate can you be? Can you think of a different word?

Try choosing a simple activity, such as writing your name. How many times can you do the activity in one minute?


L.O. To use headings and subheading

Work through the powerpoint below. Follow the instructions to write some headings and subheadings which could be used to organise a non-fiction piece of writing about animals. Write them in your yellow book. 

If you have non-fiction books at home, see if you can find any other examples of headings and subheadings. 


L.O. To start observing plants growing. 

Look at the sheet below. You can either print it out, or create a similar table in your yellow book. If you don't have any seeds, I will try to leave some outside the main school door. Help yourself, but leave some for other people!

We are going to plant seeds, bulbs or small plants and watch them growing over the next few weeks. If you can't plany anything, see if you can find a young plant to observe.
