Read and enjoy the poem Nut Tree by Julia Donaldson. Look at Rhymes in Nut Tree. Highlight the rhyming words.


Nut Tree tells the story of a tree from a tiny nut to a full-grown tree making more nuts of its own. We call this story a tree’s ‘life cycle’.


  • Look at Life Cycle of a Nut Tree.
  • Pick any box you like. In it, draw a picture of the nut underground.
  • Follow the arrows round, drawing a picture for each stage in order, using the details in each verse to tell you what to draw. 
  • Add a descriptive label to each box: Nut underground; Tiny shoot; Small tree, etc.

Today we will be learning again about time. 

When the time is o'clock the long minute hand will point towards the 12 and the short hour hand will point towards the hour. Here we can see it is 2 o'clock.

When the time is half past the long minute hand will point towards the 6 and the short hour hand will point in between two hours. Here we can see it is half past 2.


For today's task can you draw the correct time on the clocks? Remember to look very carefully which number the short hour hand is pointing to and which hand the long minute hand is pointing to.


Enjoy the video below.
