I hope you had a lovely half term holiday! What did you do? I hope you did some fun things and also enjoyed some rest and relaxation time too!
I'm so looking forward to the term ahead when (we found out after the Prime Minister's announcement on Monday), we are going to be able to return to school and learn together in the classroom once again! It will be great and I am so looking forward to meeting you all properly in person!
So two more weeks of remote learning - today and tomorrow and then next week (and next week is Book Week so lots of fun activities next week) and then we will be back in school!
How have you been getting on with your moon observations homework? Have you been remembering to look up at the moon each night and record its shape? I wonder if you have been able to identify the different phases of the moon?

The theme for this week's Reflection is Strength
“The Lord is my strength and my shield.
In him my heart trusts.”
We have all had to show Strength during the Pandemic haven't we? - When so many things that we were so familiar with had to change in order to keep people safe. What did you find hard and how did you get the strength to deal with the challenges and get through?
As you listen to the music today, think of the things that you have found hard and times when you have had to be strong, think of those who you turned to and how they helped you. Feel proud of your strength and thankful to those who helped you.

French - Tell the Time to the Hour
Quelle heure est - il?
What time is it?
To tell the time in French you need to know your numbers in French - today practise saying the numbers 1 to 11 in French:
(you only need to practise up to 11 as you will only be saying the time up to 11 o'clock, there is a special word for midday and midnight!)
The video below will teach you how to say the time from 1 o'clock to 11 o'clock. How do you say 'It is midday' or 'It is midnight'? Listen carefully!
Watch the video up to 2:00 minutes only
How to tell the time in French: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hz2gOqBF_kI
Can you remember the key question?
"What time is it?"
"Quelle heure est il?"
And how do you answer?
"Il est (number) heure"
"It is (number) o'clock"
Il est une heure = It is one o'clock
Practise asking what the time is in French (Quelle heure est il?) with someone else at home. Can they ask you the time in French (Quelle heure est il?) and can you reply in French (Il est ..... heure/s).
After that maybe you could write down your conversation? Writing the question (Quelle heure est il?) and the possible answers. Can you remember how to say "It is midday" or "It is midnight"? Look back at the video if you can't remember!
Bonne chance!! (Good luck!)
