Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. To explain when events happen in a week we can use yesterday and tomorrow.

Common misconception

Pupils may struggle to name which day follows Saturday because it is the last day of the week.

In the lesson, the days of the week are presented in both linear and cyclical form. Having the latter displayed in your classroom, and using it regularly to recite the days, will help them to see that any of the days have a day that comes after them.

Keywords

  • Yesterday - The day before today.

  • Tomorrow - The day after today.

  • Today - The current day.
