📚 World Book Day 2020 📚

What’s your favourite story or information book..? Why do you like it..?

We had great fun thinking about our favourite book characters and dressing up for the day… Take a look at some pictures… Can you guess the characters and books..?

We looked at this book which was just like another book we had read about Vikings.

Later, we ‘threw some shapes’ dancing at our Celebration disco… Woohooo! 🎉🎉🎉

We looked at a picture and spotted ten anachronisms. An anachronism is something that didn’t occur, exist or hadn’t been invented then.

⏰ 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…?
