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

Monday 1st March


GPS Starter:

Look at these words:-

watch                              want                       

wand                               wasp                     

wander                            was     

wash                               wallet


What do you notice about all these words? They all start with wa but make a 'wo'. Most words in English that sound like they start with 'wo' actually start with 'wa'. Copy these words into your workbook. Use a colour pencil to write the 'wa' part of the word or underline the 'wa' part. Then choose 3 of them and put them into a sentence.

L.O: To create a persuasive poster or leaflet.

This week, we are looking at persuasive writing and we are going to create a persuasive poster or leaflet. Talk to your grown up about what persuasive means. It is when you try and get someone to do something. So if your friend was trying to persuade you to eat one of their home made cakes, they would say and do things to try and get you to eat one. What might they say? It's delicious, chocolate flavoured, freshly baked, looks pretty etc. What would they not say? It tastes disgusting, it's really old and gone mouldy, it looks horrible etc. So when we are trying to persuade someone, we say the nicest things and use really positive language.

Today, as your 'cold write', I want you to think of your favourite place to go. It could be the park, the beach, a funfair or somewhere you have been on holiday- you choose. Then, you are going to create a poster to persuade other people to go there. Talk to your grown up about what sort of things you are going to include on your poster. You can use words and pictures.


Mental Maths Starter:

Have another session on your Times Tables Rockstars game (TT Rockstars). The more you go on and practise, the better and faster you will get at your times tables and this will help you in other maths work.


L.O: To use number bonds within 20 for addition

Follow the Oak Academy lesson and complete the worksheet in the lesson, which I have attached separately.


Play the number bonds to 20 game. You need 2 players. Choose 1, 2 or 3 stars.

L.O: To reflect on our Eucharist topic

Our topic has been remembering, celebrating and responding to different ways to say thank you and the Eucharist: the parish family thanks God for Jesus.

Today, we are going to reflect on what we have learnt and think about what we want to take away from the topic.  Talk to your grown up about:-

  • How you feel when you give thanks to others.
  • How you feel when you are thanked.
  • Why we thank God our Father.
  • How the parish family can spread the message of thanksgiving and peace.

Reflect upon we have covered in our learning:-


  • The story of the Last Supper.
  • The four parts of the Mass.
  • The Eucharistic Prayer.
  • Some of the Mass responses.
  • During the Eucharist, the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.
  • The parish family go out from Mass in peace and thanksgiving to love and serve God.

Put the heading 'What I want to take away'

Write about what you want to remember from this topic and why. You can draw a picture to go with your writing. You may want to write a Eucharist prayer like the one below.
