Here are some more details if required:

Maths – time: Overall, everybody who completed it did really well on the My Maths task based on time – well done!

Today, there are some recapping activities to make sure you’re happy but then we will move on.

Here are some online tutorials and quizzes from the BBC: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkfycdm/articles/zcrmqty

How could you display this learning? Could you create your own clocks using materials from the home? Could you create a presentation? Could you make a video of yourself teaching it?

Topic – food chains: By the end of these activities, you should be able to explain what a food chain is and give some examples whilst using scientific language.

Watch the lesson tutorial through, just listening and watching. Then, watch it again and take some notes. You may want to watch it a third time to make sure you haven’t missed anything: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/science-ks2-ks3-food-chains-and-food-webs-in-animals/zn7g92p
