Thursday 21st May
Morning all, just a quick note to say that me and Ms Mair will be starting our weekly phone calls today. As always, we'll be happy to answer any questions you might have and will probably be in a position to answer more questions relating to June 1st than last time! Don't be afraid to ask anything, we're here to help
For our English lesson today, we are going to revise Nouns and Adjectives.
Remember what the words mean!
Nouns: Name a person, place or thing.
Adjectives: Describes a person place or thing.
We can also sort nouns into different groups!
Common Noun: names a person, place or thing in general. For example, girl is a noun but doesn’t tell us what one girl’s name is! It's the name for all girls!
Proper Noun: names a specific person, place or thing. For example, Tom is a proper noun because it tells us a specific person’s name! (Big clue: proper nouns always have a capital letter!)
Use the attached worksheet to have a go!
Maths - Money - Counting Coins 2
Today we are going to build on yesterday’s learning by using our time tables to help us count coins.
At this point it would be a great idea to familiarise yourselves with the 2x, 5x and 10x tables! I’ve attached a few songs to help.

I would like you to work through the worksheet together. This involves counting in the above times tables to work out the value of a set of coins. For example, if there are five 5p coins, you should encourage your child to count: 5p, 10p, 15p, 20p, 25p!
Last week we introduced our new topic, Pentacost. We learnt how Jesus promised his disciples that he would send down the Holy Spirit, and he kept that promise! To learn more about what happened when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit down, have a watch of this short cartoon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwJJJoSGw84
For your activity, I would like you to retell the story of Pentacost through creating a comic strip! An easy way to lay this out would be to take a sheet of paper, fold it in half, fold it in half again and fold it in half again! This will give you 8 'panels' that you can use for your comic strip. Then, you can draw little pictures (with some words if you would like, but you don't have to!) to retell the story - for example, the first picture would be Jesus making his promise to the disciples. You can add speech bubbles and use lots of colours to make your presentation beautiful, but make sure that you think carefully about all the important parts of the story! Which part of the story do you think is the most important?
Every morning Joe Wicks is hosting a live PE lesson on his YouTube channel at 9am. Don't worry if you can't wake up that early, they are on YouTube all day!
