Guided Reading & Writer’s Notebook
Today we started our lesson with a warm up game. All the children were standing and a ‘unseen’ countdown timer was counting down 10 seconds. When the children thought 10 seconds was up, they sat down. We then repeated the game for 30 seconds, 1 minute and so on. Children then shared their strategies.
After discussing time and the pats of our day, organised by time, children created a clock face in their book using the language ‘o’clock’, ‘quarter past’, ‘half past’ and ‘quarter too’. They will refer to this clock later on as we continue to learn about converting units of time.
Children refreshed their learning by creating clocks and showing the times using to the hour, half past and quarter past with quarter too.
Health- Keeping Safe
Today we focused on problem solving strategies. Children used their 100 languages to create positive strategies for random scenarios that we created as a class and the children were instructed to use the new framework taught to them called the ‘Problem Solving Model’.
