Butterflies and Dragonflies

Friday 15th January 2021

In order to keep up with our time telling skills, whenever you see “WHAT’S THE TIME MR WOLF?” on the timetable, you should stop and tell the time. Record it in your journal so that we can see how you are getting on – parents if you could write a comment to let us know how accurate they were, this would be very helpful. J

We are really lucky that we have a student teacher starting with us next week. If we were at school she would have been teaching in Dragonflies but as we are online learning Miss Robinson will be leading some of our video tutorials for both classes.


Please watch her lovely video where she introduces herself:




Dragonflies will get to meet Miss Robinson properly in our zoom catch up later this morning 😊

Mental Arithmetic - test


Complete the task set online as an independent activity. This means try to answer it on your own without any help. This will help us to see how you are getting on.

If you find something really difficult, have a guess. You can ask an adult if you are unsure what to do, but please don’t ask for help with the calculations. Remember, there’s nothing wrong with getting things wrong – this is when we learn best!


Once you have finished, you can mark your work as the answers are there and let your teacher know how many you got right. J








Breaktime - have a healthy snack and play.

L.O. To justify my opinion on a mathematical statement (evaluating)

SC1: I can explain why I think someone is correct or incorrect.

SC2: I can give more information about the statement.

SC3: I can prove my thinking with evidence.


Today’s maths lesson is a grow lesson – this is suitable for those pupils who feel very fluent and confident with telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes.


If you do not yet feel very confident with your time telling, please continue to practise with the tasks set online named ‘time telling practise.’ There are 3 challenges on the page. The first is the easiest and it gets progressively harder. Choose the one most appropriate to you dependent upon how confident you feel on telling the time. The answers are behind it so that you can self-mark and correct any mistakes you might have made. Think about where you went wrong, and learn from it J


If you are ready to have a go at the grow lesson, please watch this tutorial: 



Now have a go at the task on the class page which labelled ‘Evaluating task’.



2:15 – 2:30pm
