First News and practising time

Woodpeckers very much enjoy reading the children's newspaper, First News.  The school has a subscription for lots of copies of the paper so we are lucky to be able to read it regularly.  We also practise our reading skills by answering questions in the Words and Pictures quiz.  We are getting faster at finding the facts!  It is good fun to share the information with each other - the articles are really interesting.
Woodpeckers have been learning to read the time from analogue and digital clocks, using am and pm, as well as 24-hour times.  It takes a lot of practise, so we need to do this at home as well.  Here is a BBC activity which will test our knowledge.
