Good morning, Discoverers, 

In English today, we are going to be focusing on another line from Rain Before Rainbows:

‘Friends who will help us, courageous and kind. A rope to hold on to’ 

Here, the friends have been referred to as ‘a rope to hold on to’, which is a metaphor for their support. 

Today, I would like you to think of any metaphors that can describe the people who are special to you. 

For example, you may refer to your adults at home as: A quilt to keep me warm. This would suggest that you feel warm and safe when your family are around. 

Think of as many different metaphors as you can, and write them down however you would prefer.


Today, in maths, we are going to be converting minutes into hours. 

In order to do this, we know that there are 60 minutes in 1 hour. Therefore, we can divide the number of minutes by 60, and this will help us find how many hours there are. 



In science today, we are going to be learning about the water cycle. 

I would like you to watch this video:

Then, draw a picture, illustrating the water cycle. Remember to add key vocabulary to your picture.

Have a great day,

Mrs Taylor
