Maths (Task 1)


This week we are going to be learning about time. Today we will be focusing on a minute. A minute is 60 seconds. See if you can count to 60 slowly. This is about a minute. Today’s challenge is to see whether doing these tasks takes longer or shorter than a minute.

Investigate some other tasks and see if they are longer or shorter than a minute.

Storytelling (Task 2)


Watch Mr Carter retelling the story of the Three Little Pigs and try to learn the actions and the words to the story map by following along or using the picture of the story map. You will need lots of practice little and often.
