 Good morning everyone!

Work Week GIF by Denyse® - Find & Share on GIPHY

I hope that you are all well and I am really looking forward to seeing you on zoom today. Please make sure you come along with any questions you have about previous learning or today's learning. 

We are now moving forward in our learning about measurements to measurements of time. We are not focusing solely on telling the time (although this is definitely helpful) but more about converting between units of time. Today we are starting with converting between 12 and 24 hour times. 

Don't forget to send me your amazing work!

Have a lovely day
