Here is the home learning for Monday 18th January

Joe Wicks ‘wake up’

Joe Wicks is continuing another week of PE with Joe. They will be every Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9:00-9:20am. A great way to start the day before a day of home learning. I have loved hearing how you have enjoyed taking part in these.

On the following days please log on to YouTube and search ‘PE with Joe’, it will be live from 9:00am on the days above.

English:

As it is Monday today’s home learning is to complete our weekly spelling test in test conditions. As it is the first week of spellings please test this week’s spellings in order as they are – to ease the children back into the spelling routine. I trust that you have been busy practising the spellings set last Wednesday. Please forward a message or an email with your score for our class records.

The second part of English is to complete a dictation exercise. The children should all be very familiar with dictation. Read the sentences from your child’s spelling group found in the attachment below. Write the sentences on paper underlining the spelling/spellings within the sentence learnt. Please note the focus of this activity is to reinforce the spellings learnt this week.

Watch the full video lesson below. It talks you through from the very beginning the key basics of fractions – what they are, how we write fractions, fractions vocabulary and models today’s activity. Please feel free to pause the video at any points you feel necessary to have a go at some of the questions within the video.

Extension of learning

 

Independent reading:

Please again continue this week with reading as much as you can at home. It can be a non-fiction, poetry or fiction book. Try and get your child reading for at least 20 minutes a day if you can. This can be at any time of the day.

 

 Times Table Rockstars:

We will be continuing with times table rockstars every day again to consolidate and secure those all-important times table skills. This week we are going to be consolidating our 8 times tables. Please use the link below to watch the 8 times table as practise.

RE:

We are continuing with our second lesson on RE, Gospel.  Gospel’, which means ‘good news’, and tells the story of the life and teaching of Jesus. It’s a kind of a biography, and the writers (disciples) made choices about what to include — they don’t tell everything he ever said and did.

I would like you to read the extract below taken from the bible. Read the extract carefully about Jesus calling his first disciples again. . What did James and John leave behind? Can you list some ideas. Although they have given some things up, what special new job have the disciples gained once they follow Jesus? What does Jesus mean when he says ‘fisher of people?’ Look at  the artwork below using the attachment provided. What do you see? 

Bible extract 

Fishers of men artwork 

Notes of the meaning if ‘fishers of people’ as translated below:

  • Matthew 4:19 is traditionally translated as ‘fishers of men’.
  • New Century Version has: Jesus said, ‘Come follow me, and I will make you fish for people.’
  • The Message contemporary (American) English translation says: ‘Come with me. I’ll make a new kind of fisherman out of you. I’ll show you how to catch men and women
    instead of perch and bass!’

Following Jesus and being fishers of people are actions that Jesus wanted people to do, which is why many Christians today still try to do them.

Activity 1:

I would like you to think about the qualities of a disciple Jesus would be looking for. Write a list of the characteristics Jesus would be wanting in a disciple. For example, loyal, trustworthy, gentle and giving. 

Activity 2:

After you have completed this list I would like you to create your very own list of 12 modern day disciples. These can be any person you know of famous or not! Once you have written your list for your modern day disciples I would like you to refer back to your list of characteristics. Do you think they would make a good disciple? Why? Why not? 

Take care, 

Mrs Wallis and Mrs Davidson
