⏰ Tell the time ⏰

In Year 2, you should have learned how to tell the time to quarter of an hour at least, as this photo shows:

Check you can do this at least, then revise telling it to 5 minutes, e.g. 6:20 or 1:55.

This half term, we will be reading it to the nearest minute, e.g. 4:21 or 12:03.

Today, we also discussed a.m (ante meridian ~ before midday or before noon) and p.m. (post meridian ~ after midday or after noon). Is 12:00 midnight a.m. or p.m…?

🎄 Year 3 Christmas Concert 🎄

Mr Shepherd led a lovely Christmas concert today. Thank you to all who were able to come and support us and even join in!

The children sang and played so well on their ukuleles. They played Jingle Bells and sang along with two chord changes using the chords F and C7. They also sang Winter Wonderland, Somewhere Only We Know and Last Christmas.

Mr Shepherd did comment that it was some of the best singing he has heard this season! 😃 👍🏼 🎵

“The songs were sung loudly and clearly with marvellous actions!”

“Amazing performance on the blow-up guitar 🎸!!!”

“Brilliant songs like ‘Little Donkey’, ‘What have we got in our dressing up box’, ‘Tragedy’ and ‘Angels’.”
