Wednesday 25th March
Good morning from Mrs Shelley.
Phonics (15 – 20 mins): Choose some words from your spelling list and put them into a sentence. Remember to use capital letters and full stops. Challenge … Can you include co-ordination (and, or, but) or some subordination (when, if, that, because) to join clauses in your sentences?
Then, click on the link below and select 'Against the Clock' game. Listen to the sentences and try to spell the missing words.
English (30 mins): Look at the alliteration Powerpoint below to learn more about alliteration. Today decide which level of challenge you will complete. You only need to complete one (or more if you wish).
Maths (15 mins warm up) Use these links to click on the level your child requires to practise at telling the time.
If your child is confident with o clock, ¼ past/to and ½ past, then have a go at learning reading clock to 5 minute intervals. If not, repeat activities from previous days and then complete bronze activity from today.
R.E From Mrs Postlethwaite:Hi all, for the last couple of weeks, the children have been learning about the Easter story and Holy Week and thinking about why Easter is so important to Christians. Last week we started to think about how Jesus was a bridge between the people and God. The bad choices people were making had caused a huge gap between the people and God.
Jesus hoped to teach people that the way he lived his life and how he treated others was a guide for other Christians to follow. If they tried to live their lives like Jesus this would bring them back together and closer to God. The theme I want you to think about today is Forgiveness. Listen to this story on this video or mute the sound and read it yourself.
Now talk about these things: How did the brother feel before and after forgiving his sister? What might have happened if he hadn’t have forgiven his sister?
Why do you think he found it so difficult? Why should we try and forgive and forget? What is the hardest thing you have had to forgive? Now think back to Jesus and the Easter story. What did Jesus have to forgive?
Teaching point: Christians believe that Jesus was prepared to die on the cross and forgive the people who put him there. This was to prove to Christians that if people ask for forgiveness, God has this power to do this and will forgive them.
Once you have finished your work today, why not be like Monty and do something you really enjoy. If you are working hard then you deserve a break! Monty is climbing trees in my garden!
