Measuring Time in Hours – Lesson 13

Today we will be counting back in hours. We will learn to read the time from a clockface and count back to find out the length of time spent on an activity. The first activity is counting back in full hours and uses a number line – the minutes do not change. There is one question that will need you to count back for the minutes as well.

Today you are going to write a diary entry as Charlie from Charlie and the Chocolate factory. Use the comic strip you created yesterday and the features below to help you write a good one. Remember that a diary entry must be in the first person. I have written a diary entry starter for you to use if you’d like to...

 

Dear Diary,

Well today was one of the best days of my life! I started the day walking to Willy Wonka’s factory with Grandpa Joe. It was freezing cold - the snow crunched under my feet as the icy wind nipped at my face but I didn’t mind because I knew I would soon be inside the factory. When we arrived at the factory we were greeted by a rowdy crowd of reporters and Wonka fans and amongst them all were the other 4 lucky winners. I couldn’t believe my luck - I was about to go inside Wonka’s factory!

Measuring Time in Hours – Lesson 12 

Today we will be using a number line again to work out time one hour or more after time shown on a clock. The time will be shown using a digital, analogue or Roman numeral clock face. Remember, we are counting on the hours, not the minutes! 

 For example, the time 3 hours after 11:50am will be 2:50pm.

  1. Augustus fell quickly into the chocolate river. 
  1. Willy Wonka excitedly led the group along the corridor to the inventing room. 
  1. Grandpa Joe wrapped his arms ecstatically around Charlie with pride. 

English 

You are going to pretend to be Charlie and write a diary entry tomorrow of your day at the Chocolate factory. Before you write your diary entry you need to plan the main events. Using the comic strip example and the key events below, create your own comic strip of what happened the day Charlie went to the chocolate factory. 

  1. Charlie waited outside the gates with the other children for Mr Wonka. 
  1. Charlie met Mr Wonka at the factory. 
  1. They went into the chocolate room and Augustus went up the pipe.

Science – Gravity and Air Resistance

Today we will investigate what causes things to fall, learning about Sir Isaac Newton – a very important scientist from history. We will also look at a force can act against gravity when objects travel through the air.

 

We have two short clips to watch which help us to understand gravity and air resistance before we experiment to see how some objects react when falling.

 

You’ll experiment with making your own parachute and seeing how your coat can slow you down!

 

Make sure you write up your findings using your knowledge and scientific vocabulary from your knowledge mat.

You can also copy the fill in the gaps challenge from the BBC Bitesize page into your exercise books.

Have fun!!

Measuring Time in Seconds – Lesson 10

Today we are using the second hand on an analogue clock to measure time in seconds. We need to watch it very carefully as it moves quickly!

Each time the second hand goes around the clockface is one minute, the minute hand will move one small line between the numbers on the clock – the hour hand won’t move very much at all. Key facts to remember are that there are 60 (sixty) seconds in a minute and sixty (60) minutes in an hour. We will be counting seconds (written as s) in blocks of 5 using the numbers as our guide. For the worksheet the second hand does not look like an arrow to help us know (there are now 3 hands on the clock face).

Measuring Time in Seconds Lesson 9

Today we will be looking at time in seconds. Use a stopwatch if you have one or a stopwatch on a mobile phone to measure how long things take. You can come up with your own activities to time, how long it takes for your dog to fetch a ball perhaps, or how long it takes you and other family members to run around the garden. Remember to record your times accurately and find out which is fastest or took the longest.

English - Adverbial phrases.

In this lesson you will be learning to use adverbial phrases. Look at the slides below and read them carefully. An adverbial phrase has a Subject predicate (must include a verb) adverbial phrase starting with a conjunction. I have written some sentences out for you with the conjunctions missing use the word bank on the sheet OR the word mat on the first slide to complete the sentences in your exercise books. For an ‘Aiming High’ move the adverbial phrase to the front of the sentence. Make sure you use a comma to separate the adverbial phrase from the subject and predicate.

Topic

 

Today we will conduct product research.

Take some time to think about what we did last week – taste testing chocolates. What were our favourite ingredients? E.g. caramel, nuts, wafer, marshmallows, nougat, honey, smarties, mint etc.

Your task today is to make a simple survey to find out what the most favoured ingredients are in chocolates.

Your survey can be in your book or online using a free trial on www.surveymonkey.co.uk

Think back to your reading lessons in English and come up with some multiple-choice questions. Get your family to answer them – ring your friends or extended family and get them to answer your questions. Try and ask about 10 people if you can!

You can use my examples to get you started – why not change some of the options to make it your own?

 

e.g. Which do you prefer?

  1. Milk chocolate
  2. Dark chocolate
  3. White chocolate

 

What is your favrouite flavour?

  1. Mint
  2. Vanilla
  3. Strawberry

 

Do you like nuts?

  1. Yes
  2. No

 

Which filling would you prefer?

  1. Honeycomb
  2. Smarties
  3. Caramel
  4. Wafer

 

As you ask your family and friends for their answers, make a tally chart to keep records of your findings. Decide which ingredients would make the best chocolate bar based on your answers to your survey.

Challenge: Can you make a bar chart to show your results?

Telling the Time Lesson 8.

 

In today’s lesson we are using a stopwatch to measure time in seconds. We find out that a stopwatch sometimes measure time in part of a second. Use a stopwatch on a grown-up's mobile phone to complete the in-focus task comparing the time it takes for two of you to complete simple tasks like counting and clapping. You could experiment by comparing other things like walking for a set distance or number of steps.

Worksheet 8 asks you to tell us the time recorded a number of stopwatches. You need to tell us how much time is recorded – more than and less than are required.

Telling the time Lesson 6.

We’re using travel as the theme in today's lesson for in focus and looking at analogue and digital clocks to help us understand when travel times are. We are learning about telling the time using 24-hour clocks. Remember, as we go past 12pm we count on each hour, so 1pm would be 13:00, 2pm would be 14:00 and so on. If the time is in the am (morning) you would write 09:45 for 9:45am.

Worksheet 6 asks you to tell us the time using am or pm and the 24-hour clock with examples to help you.

 

Follow the videos helping you to work out the time and use the pictures from our Maths No Problem books and complete the worksheet questions (sent in Dojo) in your exercise books. Don’t forget to Dojo your teacher your work and ask any questions too.

Science – What makes things float?

Today we are going to continue our investigation of forces. This time it is buoyancy or up-thrust (the force that combined with gravity, makes things float or sink).

This BBC Bitesize clip gives you a summary of what buoyancy is and Mocomi go into more detail. Our activity today is to use this knowledge to make your own floating vessel!

 

The experiment requires something that you can make into a boat (the clip will help you, as will your knowledge of what they look like). You can use play-doh, plasticine, bluetak or even kitchen foil. You must be able to shape it to look like a boat. You’ll need some passengers for your boat as well, I chose Lego folk! Don’t forget to take pictures of you making and testing your boats!
