Well welcome to Week 8! This will hopefully be our last week of online learning and I am so looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 8th March. I have missed you all so much.

On Thursday it is World Book Day, I would like you to decorate four small wooden spoons as Book characters, but please do not do this until Thursday. You need to come into school to collect your spoons and then we can look at what you have created during the Google Meet on Thursday afternoon. I look forward to seeing your creations.

As usual, the Timetable for the week is below, again it may be subject to change but I will try to keep to it as much as possible.

Have a good week of learning, try to do as much as you can but do not worry if things need to be changed round due to circumstances at home.

Maths: LO Written Method     

We are continuing with Master The Curriculum this week but we will also be using YouTube videos to explain Grid Method Multiplication. There will be PowerPoints for each lesson and I will include the answers for each lesson as well. Today’s lesson is Maths Day 6.

Literacy: This week we are looking at some SPAG activities. We will be using Power Points, the BBC Learning website and The CGP English Activity Book.

Watch and complete all the activities on the BBC Learning web page and then complete pages 10 and 11 in the CGP Book. (Parents, the answers for these pages are at the back of the book)

Click here for BBC Learning Prefixes Page

RE 1: LO To identify ways in which people follow and serve Christ

Look at the information pages in the “Special Roles and Responsibilities Booklet”, these are roles and responsibilities that can be found within the Church Community.

Then complete the table in the booklet RE Session 6. Writing The Role within the Church and then writing some information about what this role and responsibilities include.

RE 2: Virtues Attentive and Discerning (Father Hudson)

These are the Virtues that we are looking at this half-term. First we need to look at what Attentive and Discerning means.

Attentive: We are attentive when we listen to our calling from God to love and serve one another in all that we do. We are attentive to our experiences and can see where they will take us in our future vocations.

Discerning: We are discerning when we decide to do the right thing in the interest of the needs of others because we know the positive impact that will have on their lives.

How can we be discerning?

Why is making the right decisions so important?

Example answers: Sometimes we decide to use our time to help others who are in need. We discern that this is the right choice as we are using our gifts and talents to help those who are in a less fortunate position than ourselves.

Write a prayer asking God to help us to discern the decisions that we have to make in our lives.

Who knows what being attentive means?

Talk about the idea of listening to the needs and concerns of those around us and knowing what we can do to help them.

Why is being attentive so important?

Often people who really need our help won’t come and ask for it. We have to be attentive to people so we can work out what they might need from what they tell us. Being attentive is a bit like being a detective; we listen to people and then find the best ways to show that we love and care about them.

How could you use your gifts to be attentive to others?

Example: Be a good listener; help a friend who may be struggling; give time or money to charity.

What does the Bible say about being attentive? Read the story of Samuel below and see where the Lord called Samuel to be attentive to him.

God Calls Samuel (1 Samuel 3:1-10.)

The boy Samuel was Eli’s helper and served the Lord with him. At that time the Lord did not speak directly to people very often. There were very few visions.

Eli’s eyes were getting so weak that he was almost blind. One night he went to his room to go to bed. The special lamp in the Lord’s temple was still burning, so Samuel lay down in the temple near where the Holy Box was. The Lord called Samuel, and Samuel answered, “Here I am.” Samuel thought Eli was calling him, so he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.” But Eli said, “I didn’t call you. Go back to bed.” So Samuel went back to bed. Again the Lord called, “Samuel!” Again Samuel ran to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.” Eli said, “I didn’t call you. Go back to bed.” Samuel did not yet know the Lord because the Lord had not spoken directly to him before. The Lord called Samuel the third time. Again Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, “Here I am. You called me.” Finally, Eli understood that the Lord was calling the boy. Eli told Samuel, “Go to bed. If he calls you again, say, ‘Speak, Lord. Your servant is listening.’” So Samuel went back to bed.

The Lord came and stood there. He called as he did before, saying, “Samuel, Samuel!” Samuel said, “Speak, Lord. Your servant is listening.”

Topic To understand the different types of Government in Ancient Greece.

Watch Power Point below. Do you know what a government is? How would you describe it?  Explain that a government is in charge of a place: they are responsible for making the laws and rules which people in the area must live by.

Explain that in ancient Greece there was no central government. People lived in city-states, which were completely independent from each other, with their own form of government, usually a monarchy, oligarchy or democracy. Have you heard any of these words before? Can you explain what they mean? Check in a dictionary or by using Google.

Use the following slides to explore and discuss these three types of government and how they worked in ancient Greece.

Look at the Advantage and Disadvantage Cards B and worksheet 2B (Week beginning 01.03.21). Then read and write each card into the correct part of the table. Encourage children to think of any more advantages or disadvantages for both types of government.

To watch the PowerPoint and read the information about Rembrandt. Look at the different styles of painting that he has done. Looking at particular at the fact that he played with light and dark tones in his paintings.

In their European Artist Booklets, using pencils, the children will draw/colour the darkest colour that they can at the top of the paper and the lightest at the bottom. Can they then, using their pencils only, match up the colours so that you can see the tone from dark to lightest? (See example below)

On the next page in their booklet, the children draw all over their paper with broad pencil strokes until it is covered with pencil. There should be no white paper left on the paper. The children then take their rubbers and use them to draw a picture of themselves.

Example of the colour tone activity
