Wednesday

English -

Today we will read the book 'My Dad' by Anthony Browne. This story contains some similes.

Task: 

  • Go through the PowerPoint below.
  • Think of adjectives to describe your dad/ grandad or other father figure in your life then write a poem with some similes about him.

 

Again, you can be as silly as you like.

 

Again,  you will find a modelled poem that I have written to help you.

You will also find some examples of similes to help you on the PowerPoint.

Remember: Try not to use too many similes.

 

We will be making a Father’s Day card on Friday, so you can use your poem as an insert for your card.  You don’t have to decide to use this one as we will be writing different inserts each day for you to choose from.

Guided Reading - Today we will continue reading 'The Little Gingerbread Fox' by Jean Evans. Again, you will find questions on each slide. Please discuss these with your adult/brother/sister. There is no need to write down the answers although you can if you would like to.

Maths -

Today we will begin our new topic - Time.

In this first lesson children will  begin understand o'clock and half past the hour.  

Today will be a practical lesson.  The children will make their own clocks.  However, before doing say they need to lesson to the two videos below to help their understanding.

Task: 

  • Listen to the two videos below.
  • Use the template attached below to help you make your clock.

Here are the instructions:

  1. Cut out the clock face and hands.
  2. Glue the clock face onto a paper plate (don’t worry if you don’t have one, your clock will still work).
  3. Use a split pin to put the hands on the clock.

Your clock face id now ready.  

Play a o’clock and half past game with your family. 

Some ideas:

Show them a o’clock or half past time and they tell you the time.  They then tell you an o’clock or half past time and you have to show the correct time on your clock.

R.E. - L.O. : To write in what a child and priest say during reconciliation.

Today we will learn about one of the seven Sacraments - The Sacrament of Reconciliation. It is important every day to think about if you have followed good rules and made good choices. This is called an Examination of conscience.

Your conscience is the sense of right and wrong that is inside you, and helps you to make good choices. Look at the picture below. Read it out loud.

Look at the picture.  It shows a very special Sacrament.

There is a very special Sacrament, sign of God’s love, that helps Catholics, to examine or look at their consciences and ask God’s forgiveness. It is called the Sacrament of Reconciliation. You think of the sins you are sorry about, the things you have done wrong on purpose, you ask God to forgive you, and tell the priest, who keeps it a secret and won’t tell anyone. The priest tells you your sins are forgiven in Jesus’ name and asks you to make up for them by being kind and by saying a prayer.

 Some questions: 

  • What  is good to do at the end of the day and why?
  • How do you think someone feels who has received the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
  • What  does this priest tell you in this Sacrament?
  • What kind of things do you think you would ask someone to do to make thing right, if you were a priest?
  • How can you show you are really sorry?

Task:

Look on the picture in the attached document below. In the speech bubble   write something that the boy is sorry for and how the priest replies.
