Adjectives are describing words that are used to add more detail to nouns. In class we have been using adjectives to describe the characters in our stories and the animals we met at Marwell Zoo. I remember when we described the sloth as sleepy and the giraffe as ginormous!
Can you think of an adjective for every letter of the alphabet?
- You could think of a few a day.
- You don't have to write them all down.
- Maybe you could send in a video of you saying some of them!
A = amazing
B = brave
C = cool
D = dull
By the end of Year 1 children should be able to tell the time to the hour, half past the hour and begin to think about quarter past the hour and quarter to the hour. If you know these times, can you start to think about the five minute intervals?
Activity: Can you make your own clock using materials from around your home?
Don't forget to think about:
- how to write your numbers carefully
- how to space the numbers out around the clock

Challenge someone in your home to tell the time with a clock you have made or a clock you can find around your home.

Below is a step by step on how to create a paper plane. If you know another way then that is brilliant too!
