English - To find out about a significant person in history. To make notes about him.
Over the next two weeks our English lessons will be linked to our History. Do you remember the name of the person that went to The Galapagos Island and studied the plants and animals on the island? There was a clue in our Geography lesson before half term.
Do you remember his name? Yes, that right his name is Charles Darwin. He was a naturalist who studied plants and animals. He was a great traveller who made discoveries, kept records and lived a long time ago. Here is an example of his notes and drawing:
You are going to become a naturalist just like Charles Darwin did so the first think you need is a note book. Please make or get a notebook. Everyday, during for guided reading you will learn something about Charles Darwin. You will write notes about what you've learnt in your notebook.
In the afternoon, you will get some suggestions of how to be a naturalist. This will be called 'get inquisitive'. Activities will involve cllecting plants, leaves and maybe animals. These will also go in your book.
Once you have made your book, (this could be as simple as getting some blank pages and stapling them together) reading the first chapter of 'Following in Darwin's footsteps' for guided reading. Answer the first three question in the notebook you have made. Discuss the other questions with your adult/brother/sister.
R.E. Monday 1st June: L.O. : To choose my favourite commandment then apply to my life.
Think back on some rules that you said you had at home and in our class. What are they? Discuss with an adult/brother/sister.
There are rules for the road. We may have rules about who and how someone plays with our belongings. God has a rule to help us live well with ourselves and each other. Here is what St Paul’s letter in Colossians 3: 10-17, has to say about us: God’s people.
Talk about what it means with your adult/brother/sister.
We also have the 10 commandments. Do you know what they are?
Below is a link with a song about the ten commandments. Listen/sing along. I have also upload a paper version for you.
After listening to the song/looking at the 10 commandments, write out all the 10 commandments then write which commandment is your favourite and how you can show this in your life. For example, I show that I honor my parents by listening to them and doing what they ask me to do. After this, write a prayer to God thanking Him for His rules.
