Tuesday 12th May 2020

Have a terrific Tuesday!  Have fun and remember to email in your work and photos of you doing your work.  On Thursday you will need 3 empty bottles, so start saving them.



For the next 2 weeks we are going to focus on our Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling (GPS) and how we use this in our writing.  You will have some GPS tasks to complete and then a short writing task.  We are focusing on short writing, but we with the correct grammatical structures.


If you don’t know what the question is asking, use the grammar glossary below to help you.

Guided Reading

Read the text below and answer the questions in full sentences.  

You can also read a chapter of a book (you are year 4 you should be reading chapter books) or use a reading text on Purple Mash or Oxford Reading Buddy. 


Unfortunately, White Rose are charging people to use the daily lesson now, so we are using the White Rose work we would access in school.

Again, you do not need to print the worksheets, you can answer them in your books or on paper.


If you get stuck, use the BBC Bitesize KS2 maths section on measurement to help you.


LEARNING FOCUS 2:  The Holy Spirit gives courage to Peter and John.


Read Acts 4: 1-26, We cannot keep silent.  The apostles are witnesses to Jesus being raised to new life by God.  The Holy Spirit confirmed their faith in Jesus and gave them the courage they needed to speak out about the Good News of Jesus even when they were threatened.


Answer these questions:

Why were the friends of Jesus full of new life?

Why do you think the officials were annoyed?

What happened to Peter and John?

How do you think Peter and John felt when they were arrested?

What did they say to the council?

How did Peter and John show their courage to the officials?

What would you have done?  Why?


Then: Write a character sketch  (play script)of either Peter or John, giving reasons for their actions.


Purple Mash

If you want to do any extra work, then you can use Purple Mash.  When you log into Purple Mash click on the weekly activities on the right hand side.  Then click on ages 7-9.  When you go into this folder, click on week 6

Then you can complete the activities for Tuesday.
