Monday 4th January

 

Good morning children,

 

I hope that you have had happy and peaceful Christmas, that you and your family are all well and that you are ready for the new year. I know that it is not exactly the return to school that we would have wanted but hopefully we will find ways to make home-schooling both rewarding and enjoyable.

 

If you scroll down this page you will find everything you need for today.

 

I have included two maths lessons for today. This is because we are ever so slightly behind schedule after all the work on our ‘Nine Lessons and Carols’ and we now need to catch up. You are beginning with a recap on dividing fractions which was where we left off before Christmas.

 

In English, we are going to continue reading Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. You will find a PDF file of the end of chapter six and the whole of chapter seven which you will need to read.

 

Alternatively, you could listen to the book by following this link:

 

https://playaudiobooks.com/philip-pullman-northern-lights-audiobook/

 

Scroll down the page, underneath the image of the book’s front cover there are arrows which, when clicked on, play different sections of the book. Click on the third arrow down and move forward to 40:57.

To listen to all of chapter 7, you will need to continue with the fourth arrow and listen until 24:15.

 

When you have read, or listened to, the end of chapter seven scroll down further to watch the video on ‘The Hero’s Journey’ by Joseph Campbell.

 

There is also a short video introduction to this term’s history work on the Anglo-Saxons, watch the video and follow the instructions that go with it.

 

Finally, there is a fifteen-minute workout video to help you keep active.

 

I hope you have a good day,

 

M. Price.

Reading for Monday 4th January

The Hero's Journey according to Joseph Campbell - video by Matthew Winkler and Kirill Yeretsky

Watch this video when you have read chapter seven of 'Northern Lights.'

When you have finished watching the video, make a mind-map showing how Lyra's journey mirrors aspects of 'The Hero's Journey.' You won't be able to do this in full as we have yet to finish reading the book (not to mention the fact that 'Northern Lights' is just the first book in a trilogy).

You could then try doing the same for one, or more, of your favourite books, films or TV shows. The 'Star Wars' films closely mirror 'The Hero's Journey,' as the creator of 'Star Wars' was heavily influenced by Jospeh Campbell's book.

Finally, you could think about, or discuss with someone at home, why stories that follow 'The Hero's Journey' are so popular. If you are not sure, try watching the full video at:
