Tuesday

Handwriting

Tuesday

Today I want you to work really hard at joining on and off of the letter c. Page 23 encourages you to do this in the EXTRA section. Keep trying the words until you are happy with your joins.

 

Extension

If you feel you have done really well with your joins, you could move on to the EXTENSION section at the bottom of page 23. This section is demonstrating words within sentences that contain the letter c. Little and often is best to improve your handwriting. Keep working hard! I bet your writing looks amazing at the end of your practice.

English

Yesterday we looked at explanation texts. Can you remember what the features of explanation texts are?

 

Click on the link and watch the video to help remind you of the features https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zk69g7h

You may choose to do the quiz underneath the video in you own time as an extension. 

 

We are now going to learn about causal conjunctions and how these are used in an explanation text. 

Causal conjunctions are used to explain how things work or why something has happened. 

Watch the teaching video to find out more.

RE

Our over arching question this half term is to explore;

Why do people pray?

Last week we looked at Islamic Prayer.

This week we are going to look at Christian Prayer and our main question to try and answer is; How and why do Christians like to pray?

 

LO: To explore why Christians like to pray.

 

Thinking time -

What are the reasons why people pray?

Who are Christians praying to? Why?

How do you think a Christian prays?

Is that any different to how people from other religions pray? 

How can we learn about prayer by asking questions? 

 

Watch the video link below to find out more about Christian Prayer

Can you talk with an adult about what you know about how and why Christians pray. If you prefer you could make a poster about Christian prayer. Or you might have some questions about Christian prayer, you could write them down and try to find out the answers.
Keeping Fit and Active

Keeping fit is vital during this time. There will be lots of activities that you enjoy doing and you should aim for 40 minutes each day of fitness.

Below are a couple of documents with suggested activities and links that you can use if you are short of ideas. There are lots of apps and online activities but make sure you also get outdoors with your family for some fresh air when you can, staying safe and keeping your distance from others.
