Find a cosy, comfortable spot at home and if it is safe to do so, ask an adult to light a candle.
Place objects around it that you think are appropriate to the topic of Lent and Easter.
Gather people together around you – maybe play a calming piece of music.
Make the sign of the cross together. Think about all you have learnt about Lent and Easter –
After this quiet time of reflection and prayer:
Complete the comprehension in your pack. It should be either:
Martha’s Hedgehog Diary/ Great Garden birds
Sunflower Plant Lifecycle
The marking scheme for Martha’s hedgehog diary should be on Seesaw.
Play a game with mum or dad or another family member.
Next, I want you to play a game where you have to give someone directions to either find something or go somewhere in your house but they can only follow the directions you give them.
You could draw a treasure map for something hidden at home and give somebody instructions how to find it e.g. quarter turn clockwise, 3 steps forwards, turn right, 2 steps forwards, 1 quarter turn anti clockwise etc
Let me know how you get on!
Now that you have ordered your sentences and given them a number, re-write your sentences in your book to make your riddle. Start with the most difficult clue and end with the easiest clue. How will you end your riddle? Will you have a question?
Read your riddle to members of your family and video yourself reading it and send it to me. I will show Florence and Mr Schofield to see if they can guess!
Keep up with your reading and choose a new book from the eLibrary
Make a robot out of any 3D shapes you have at home – it could be junk modelling, it could be laying shapes on the carpet to make a robot – what-ever you think. Then draw a picture of your model and count and name all the 3 D shapes you have used.
When we write a riddle, we always save the easiest clues till last so that the riddle isn’t guessed too early!
Look at the sentences you wrote yesterday.
Read what you have written and decide which are your easiest and hardest clues. If you don’t have any really hard ones, write a few more using the information you gathered from the internet.
Then choose a number from the scale below to write next to each sentence.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Write down your subtraction and addition facts to 20. Only use 2 digits
e.g. 17 + 3 = 20, 20 – 3 = 17 etc
Watch the link from BBC Bitesize Seeds and dispersal https://vimeo.com/218127343
Make a spider diagram to show all the different ways that seeds can disperse including words and pictures e.g.
There are plenty of other good video clips on BBC Bitesize about plants – try the one on roots and stems. Let me know what you think.
e.g. kiwi fruit
The fruit was named in 1959 after the kiwi, a bird and the symbol of New Zealand. Before that, its English name was Chinese gooseberry. The kiwifruit is healthy and contains many vitamins and minerals. Kiwis are rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium, and fibre. The kiwifruit is produced in Italy, New Zealand and Chile. It has an oval shape. It is green on the inside with small black that can be eaten. The kiwi has furry brown that is edible but is usually removed. The skin is relatively thin.
Sentences using the words you have identified from the riddles:
I am named after a bird and I’m the symbol of New Zealand.
Sometimes I am known as the Chinese gooseberry.
When you cut me open, I am green on the inside.
If you want to, you can eat my skin
I look hairy and brown
When you touch me I feel furry
I taste sweet and soft
I am very healthy to eat because I contain lots of vitamins and minerals
My shape will remind you of an oval
Write your sentences in a list please as you will need it this way for tomorrow's work.

Good Friday was not the end. After Jesus had died on the Cross his friends came and took his body and buried it in a stone tomb and rolled a big stone in front of the opening. They had not got time to prepare Jesus’ body as it was the Sabbath.
Matthew’s Gospel tells us what happened next:
After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.
Now I have told you.”
So, the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell the others to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
Look at the picture. On Easter Sunday, people celebrate the Resurrection, the new life that God gave to Jesus. The church is decorated with lots of flowers, the priest wears a white or gold vestment and there is lots of singing, especially ‘Alleluias’, to show how happy everyone is.
SOME KEY QUESTIONS
Friday 27th March 2020
Write a book review of one of your reading books. Here is an example of how you could organise your work and the sub headings to use.
Complete these maths problems.
The Events of Good Friday
Shortly after the Last Supper Jesus was taken prisoner by those who were jealous of him. Read the account from Mark’s gospel (see text).
Every year on Good Friday, the day after Maundy Thursday, the Church remembers this sad time. Look at the picture.
At the Good Friday liturgy everyone listens to the Readings about what happened and then comes forward to venerate the Cross. Venerate means approach the Cross and offer a gesture of respect e.g. kneeling or bowing before the Cross or kissing it.
Often during Lent, Christians remember Jesus’ death by praying the Stations of the Cross (station means stopping place). In the church there are fourteen plaques around the church (sometimes fifteen if the Resurrection is included) depicting the journey of Jesus to His crucifixion and burial. Christians remember Jesus died for everyone.

Write the middle part of your story using your story plan. This is the part of the story that tells us what the problem is and how to resolve it. There should be lots of description(adjectives) and explanation that makes sense. Remember to use different sentence types - exclamations, starting with adverbs, using similes and your suffix words; -ly, -ness, -ment, -ful. Also the usual writing rules should still be there- capital letters, full stops, punctuation and spelling. Read what you have written and edit it too.
Practice counting in fives and learning your 5 times tables. Use Times Tables Rock Stars for this. This can be an on-going task for the week.
Look at the clock and count in blocks of 5 minutes from the o’clock position down to the half past position.
Make a clock out of paper with separate hands and practice putting the minute hand in different positions – only up to half past. Read the time and record in your book. Post what you have done/ take a picture and send it via Seesaw.
In the country where Jesus lived the roads were dusty and dry, so it was the custom to wash your feet before a meal, usually it was a lowly servant who did this. The disciples were very surprised by what happened at the beginning of the meal we now know as the Last Supper. The story is found in John’s gospel. Here is what happened: - see pictures
On Maundy Thursday during Holy Week a special Mass is celebrated. The priest washes people’s feet to remind everyone that Jesus washed the disciples feet. Jesus wanted to show his friends how they must behave towards each other – caring for and looking after each other.
Jesus showed us how to serve and do things for other people. Describe how you could take the opportunity to serve someone. Write and draw about it in your book.
