Tuesday 7th July Home Learning Tasks

English- Recap your learning from yesterday. What can you remember about tankas? Read through the following tankas:

Silently, snowflakes
fall cold and wet on my tongue,
a flavourless ice cream,
making me wish for summer
and the taste of pink lemonade

Crash at two A.M.
I opened my bedroom door
A white cat ran by
Startled by the clanging fall
Of the treat jar’s metal lid

Beautiful mountains
Rivers with cold, cold water.
White cold snow on rocks
Trees over the place with frost
White sparkly snow everywhere.

Choose your favourite tanka and copy it out. Illustrate it to show your understanding of the poem.

Special places in our world

RE- REVEAL – God has forgiven you

God is always loving and forgiving. There are many times in the Gospels where Jesus tells us this. Here is the story of the Prodigal Son, a parable that Jesus told that explains how God forgives us. Sometimes this parable is called ‘The Prodigal Father’ as the father in the story is prodigal in his love for his son: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfDfMZ6MTJs

Look closely at this picture below. It is called ‘The Return of the Prodigal Son’ by Rembrandt. Can you see each of the characters: the father, the prodigal son and the older son. Which part of the story do you think this shows? Can you see what each of them are doing? What might they be thinking?

Think about these questions: – What did the younger son choose to do with his money? – What were the consequences of his choices? – What does the story tell us about the father? – Who is the father like? From listening to the parable, we know that God is full of mercy and compassion. He always forgives us even though he does not like sin. God always loves you.

Look at the picture below. This is ‘The Prodigal Son’ by Kristi Valiant. It shows the father who still loves his son, just like he did when he was a baby. Create your own image that shows part of the story of the Prodigal Son. Think about what your picture could show.

Tuesday 16th June Home School Tasks

 

Today we say goodbye to our beloved Mrs Sillitoe, but we know that she will always be with us in our hearts. Please keep her husband Phil, son Michael and daughters Caitlin and Charlotte in your thoughts and prayers.

Maybe light a candle and say this poem and prayer together again.

A Prayer to Share
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
Console my sorrow, grief and fear,
Ever this day, be at my side,
To light and guard,
To help and guide.
Amen.

A Poem for Mrs Sillitoe
I give you this one thought to keep,
I am with you still – I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond shine that glints on snow,
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain,
I am the gentle, autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not think of me as gone –
I am with you still in each new dawn

Monday 15th June Home School Tasks

EnglishWith a different colour, read through last week’s writing and correct any punctuation or spelling errors.  Using your plan, write the fourth paragraph of your non-chronological report (Gods and goddesses). You will need to write a subheading under your last paragraph. Please write your information in full sentences with capital letters and full stops. You could challenge yourself by adding commas in lists and apostrophes for possession. Use a word book for any spellings you are unsure of. See our example below:

Gods and goddesses

In Ancient Egypt, the people believed in over 2000 gods and goddesses. Each god or goddess had an important role. The Ancient Egyptians built temples for their gods and goddesses and prayed to them. Some significant gods and goddesses were Amun, Ra and Isis. Amun was the lord of the gods and sometimes wore a ram’s head. Ra was the sun god and believed to be the creator of all living things. The goddess of love was called Isis.

Spellings – New spellings today. As usual, make sure you know the meaning of the words!  Spellings – Summer 2, Week 3 

Reading – Today, after you’ve read, tell an adult about what you have read. You might want to act it out!

DT– Think about the food you are planning to make. Can you think about food items you have tried in the past that are linked? For example, if you are making a fruit salad, you could evaluate some different fruits that you have tried. 

Draw a picture of the food items and a sad, straight or smiley face. You could record some key words to explain your decision e.g. juicy, bitter, sweet, crunchy, smooth etc. This will help you to decide which ingredients will be tasty in your concoction!
