We are looking at the homophones -there, their and they're. Watch the powerpoint and talk to your grown up about the difference between them and when to use each one. Complete the activity sheet to practise using them correctly.

L.O: To edit and improve their animal riddle
Today, we are going to edit and improve our work. Begin by reading your riddle or riddles from yesterday. What do you like about it? Do the clues work- help the reader to guess the animal? Talk to your grown up. We are going to add some extra clues today and see if we can add some more interesting words, adverbs and maybe even some subordinating conjunctions!
First, I want you to think of at least two extra clues. For example, if you haven't said where your animal lives or what noise they make, you could include those clues today.
Decide where these clues are going to fit in your riddle. Are they easy, hard or medium clues for the reader. Give them a number like you did yesterday.
Look at some of the clues you have already written and see if you can improve them by adding extra words or changing words that are not very exciting. For example, if your riddle is about a snake and your clue says "I have smooth skin", you could improve this by saying" I have smooth, scaly skin"
Remember, adverbs describe the verb, so instead of saying " I roar" improve it by saying I roar extremely loudly!"
We have been looking at subordinating conjunctions in our GPS work this week. See if you can put at least one in your riddle. For example, I will curl into a tight ball if I get frightened. (hedgehog)
Copy out your improved riddle in your very best handwriting. Finally, draw a picture of your animal next to/underneath your riddle. I hope you are pleased with your finished riddle and you enjoyed writing it!

L.O: To interpret scales when weighing objects
Work through the lesson on weighing and interpreting scales. Complete the worksheet from the lesson, which I have attached below.
To reinforce your learning, choose some items from around your house and practise weighing them in your kitchen scales. Check with your grown up that you are reading the scales correctly.
Can you weigh 2 or 3 small items. Weigh each of them separately and write down their weights. Can you add up the total and see what they weigh altogether? Place the 2 or 3 items in the scales and see if you are correct.

L.O: To know ways we can spread kindness and peace after Mass has ended.
We have been thinking about Mass, the different parts of the service and why it is special. At the end of the Eucharist, the priest gives the parish family a blessing. He then will say “Go in peace” and the people reply, “Thanks be to God!” The Eucharist ends with the people being sent out to follow Jesus’ example by how they live their lives. Outside church, people will chat to one another and sometimes go to the hall to meet together and share some refreshments before they go home. People help by taking it in turns to make the tea and coffee. This is a good time for people to talk to one another and be friendly.
During the week, people try to remember to live in peace and friendship with others, to be kind and thoughtful just like Jesus.
Some key questions
Draw a picture and write about how you can spread the message of giving thanks and peace at home and school. (How can you be kind, show friendship, spread peace and love to others, the way Jesus wants us to?)
