L.O: T o write the build up to an explorer story
Today, we are writing the next part of our explorer story. We are thinking about your character finding something and then getting a reward. Look back at your plan and think about what your character finds. Use lots of adjectives to describe the setting (place) they are exploring and then after a while, say what they find. Was it underneath a prickly bush in the jungle? Was it behind a big rock at the back of a cave? Describe the object they have found. (I have seen some great ideas on your story plans! ) Then explain how they take it back and that they get a reward. Describe the reward and say how your character feels. Then stop. We will carry on tomorrow.
Remember- think, say, write , check your sentences. Remember -punctuation, conjunctions adjectives, adverbs, handwriting.
Can you use a different sentence starter? After a while,.... When.... Suddenly,.........

L.O: To know that the Gospels contain the word of God
Watch the video below and talk to your grown up about what is happening. Think about these things as you watch the video.
In your books, draw a picture of the priest standing at the lecturn and reading the Gospel. Next to that or underneath, draw 3 little pictures of where we make the sign of the cross with our right thumb (forehead, lips and heart) as we say the words "Glory to you, Oh Lord." We say and do this before the Gospel reading. Write at least one sentence underneath your pictures, to explain what is happening.
