'With Jesus, we learn as a joyful family and flourish to be the best that we can be'

Friday 12th February

I hope you've all had a great week. Well done for making it to half term! Make sure you all enjoy yourself and rest up! Hopefully it won't be too long until we're back in class together again. If you haven't already, please can you make sure to take a picture of one piece of English and one piece of Maths from the week (only 2 pieces altogether, not one each day) and email it to me on purple mash. I will set 2Do's for you to complete too.  Missing you all so much!

LO: To hot write a rhyme


GPS Starter:

Write two sentences with adjectives and conjunctions about what you are going to do over half term. For example my sentence would be:

It is Miss Khan's birthday in half term so she is going to get lots of exciting presents! (Hopefully)


Main Task:

Today we are going to look again at the rhyme you have chosen. Have a look again at the language pattern and the words that rhyme. Change these to your own words to write 3/4 verses of a rhyme. Remember to include: 

  • Capital letters
  • Punctuation
  • Finger spaces
  • Neat handwriting 
  • Adjectives


Check your work to make sure you have included everything on the list and edit it if you can. 


Go onto phonics play and look at phase 5. Play tricky word trucks and go onto phase 5A tricky words. Then you can choose some other games. 

Write down the tricky words and use them in sentences. 


LO: To recognise halves and quarters


Mental Maths Starter:

Molly has 12 sweets. She splits these into two groups. How many sweets in each group? Now she splits the 12 sweets into 4 groups, how many sweets in each group? What do you notice?


Main Task

Today we are looking at understanding halves and quarters. 



Can you find half of 20?

Now can you find a quarter of 20?


LO: To recognise Mass as a special meal for the parish family


Use the picture from Church’s Story 1 pages 26 – 27 as you read the following story:


Last Sunday, when I went to church with Dad and Grandma, Mr Sheridan asked my friend Clare and me if we would take up the gifts of bread and wine to the altar in the procession of gifts. I had never done it before and I felt quite excited. When the time came, I held the dish with the altar breads, which are called hosts, and carried it very carefully. Clare carried the wine and Mr Sheridan and Grandma took up the collection. Father James smiled at me. “Thank you, Clare and Tom,” he said.  When I returned to my seat, I watched Father James offer the gifts and listened as he asked God our Father to bless the bread and wine that would become Jesus for us. We all replied, “Blessed be God forever.” 


Think about and discuss these questions with an adult:


  • What is the food and drink for the special meal?
  • What did Father James do with the gifts of bread and wine?
  • What did the people reply?


Now can you write your own prayer to say thank you to God for the gift of food.


LO: To move with skill
