Challenge 3

Geography - Time Zones

It’s 8:30 Wednesday morning in Woking. You’ve just had breakfast, brushed your teeth and got yourself ready for another day of home learning. However, in New York, everyone is fast asleep as it’s the middle of the night (3:30 a.m.). If you were in Hawaii right now, you’d only just have gone to bed as it’s actually only 9:30 p.m. Tuesday (11 hours behind us!). For children in Dubai, they have already been learning for a few hours and will be counting down the minutes to Wednesday lunchtime. Although, if you were in Sydney Australia, you will have finished learning for the day and be asking your parents how long till dinner as it’s 5:30 p.m.

Timezonemap

Because the earth rotates around the sun, it can’t be light at the same time all around the world. To ensure we all get to be awake when it is light out and asleep when it is dark, the earth is separated into lots of different time zones. For your geography challenge today, you are going to investigate some of these different time zones around the earth.

Home-School Communication

We are thrilled with the children's learning which we have seen so far.

To make sure we are all on the same page, here are some guidelines on expectations with home learning and communication between parents/carers and teachers. 

1. Each week there will be three new challenges uploaded to this page by Thursday for children to complete and upload. 

2. Teachers will reply to children's work between 8:30-3:30 Monday-Friday (we will respond within 48 hours of submission) 

3. If your child is sending in multiple pieces of work in a day (great!), the teacher will respond to them all within one email.

4. Excellent work will be celebrated on our website and newsletter.

5. We will use Dojos to reward fantastic learning..prizes for the most Dojos in the class TBC!

As always, your family’s wellbeing is our priority. As we are not seeing you at the classroom door each day, an email check in every two weeks is a good way to reassure us that you are all ok. Please can you reply to this email to say you have received it. If you have any concerns or need advice, don’t hesitate to ask and we will do what we can to help.
