MYMATHS

Thursday 1st April 2021

Please Note: There in no Zoom Session today.

The final day before the holidays – Happy Easter everyone. I have set you a few more challenges to complete when you can. Enjoy a wonderful break with your families, make sure you keep safe and we can’t wait to see you after the holidays.

THE CRUCIFIXION


Today we will think about the final part to the story this week. The Crucifixion a really sad but crucial part of Jesus’ story as we know he died to save us all.

Take some time to look through the stations of the cross reflections on the Lent page and look at the image for Class 5...

Using a cross template write a pray for someone that you know that has died.  Think about the wonderful things that you did together and all the special memories and then write them down on the cross as a way to thank them for being such a special part of your life.

PE


Gymnastics


Here is the next lesson for Gymnastics on Oak Academy, remember stay safe and have fun.

Dance challenge


If you don’t fancy gymnastics, why don’t you try the Jersualema Dance challenge? I think St Gerards could do better than this school – what do you think?

MATHS


Keep practising your times tables using TTrockstars. I have set you some more work on Mymaths as well to keep you busy. But please don’t forget to complete your own games, I can’t wait to play them when we all get back together.

Wednesday 31st March 2021

As we talked about yesterday, there will NOT be any Zoom Sessions today.

Wow what beautiful weather we are having, please make the most of it. Any activities that we include on our web page can be completed any time. We still want to see what you have completed but do them at a time that is best for you.


Today we would have been making our special journey around school to celebrate Holy Week. Have a look at the pictures on the Lent Page on the website, can you recreate some of the areas in your own home? Perhaps you could use the pictures to help you imagine walking around school and reflecting on each part of Jesus’s story.

GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE


Today we focus on the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus had just finished his meal and was very tired and scared. He knew that God had a special plan for him but he wasn’t sure he was strong enough so he went out into the garden and prayed.


Take some time today to write a prayer to God. Maybe you need to ask for God’s help to do something, maybe you can pray for others or ask God for forgiveness for something you have done wrong. Listen to your heart as you write your prayer and don’t forget to say thank you to God and finish with Amen.

Make your own Garden scene.


Why don’t you get outside and have a go at making your own Easter Garden as you think about the story?
Watch the video to give you an idea. We look forward to seeing all your creations.

LAST SUPPER


Have a look through the presentation below with all the different ways that artists have shown the last supper. Choose your favourite and have a go at creating your own version. Think about the lesson you learnt yesterday about the size of the body compared to the head. If you don’t want to draw can you different types of materials to create a collage?

MATHS


Have another go on TTrockstars, which times table are you the best at, which one do you still need to practise. Have a go in the soundcheck area and see how many you can get right.

Tuesday 30th March 2021

Today we have a special message from Miss Green.  She would love to find out more about you all and has asked you to write to her using the class 3 email.  Please watch the video to find out more.

REMEMBER ME MATHS


I have put some more times table activities on Mymaths to help you practise but today I would love you to design a game to help children in class 2 to practise their 2x 5x or 10x times tables or the bonds to ten. Maybe you could make a jigsaw matching questions with answers, perhaps you could make a snap game or a board game like we have in class. Be creative and have fun.

RE: THE LAST SUPPER


Today we are thinking about the next part in the story of Jesus, when he had a special meal with his friends. He wanted them to all remember him by eating the bread and drinking the wine and we still do this today thousands of years later. 


Jesus chose something that people would remember and that Priests would be able to copy so that millions and millions of people would always remember him, which was a very special thing to do.


As you read the scripture, try to imagine that you were one of the disciples sat listening to your best friend. How would you feel? What would you see around you? What would you hear? 


After watching the video and reading the scripture add another entry into your diary. Make sure you describe in detail what the room might be like, what Jesus looked like and how you felt as he spoke.

FLAT BREAD


Have a go at making your own flat bread at home. All you need is some flour, oil and water. Read the instructions carefully and get a grown up to help you cook the bread – it really doesn’t take long to cook. You can make them into wraps, sandwiches or just eat the bread on its own – it tastes lovely while still warm. I look forward to seeing your delicious creations.

ART


This week we would have been looking in more detail at the pictures of the last supper and creating our own versions. Today have a practise learning how to draw a human figure, its quite tricky to get the right proportions but watch the video and have a go.

Monday 29th March 2021

Zoom Sessions today will be at 9:30 and 2:30

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. This week starts with the exciting news that Miss Green is returning after her maternity leave. Unfortunately that means we are going to have to say a fond farewell to Miss Mountain. We would all like to say a huge thank you to Miss Mountain for all her hard work, I know you are all going to miss her. Hopefully, when we are all back in school, we will be able to say a proper goodbye in person but if you would like to send any messages this week please use the class email address.


MARK 10 MISSION

Today they will celebrate Palm Sunday, using the scripture that you looked at last week.  Have another look at your diary entry after watching the episode, do you want to add any more information?

REMEMBER ME


Our theme for Holy Week is Remember Me. Today we will look at the beginning of Jesus’s last meal with his friends when he decided that he would wash their feet. This story shows us that although Jesus was a very important person, a king, he wanted everyone to remember that looking after each other and serving others is the most important thing.


Read through the scripture and watch the short video. How do you think the disciples felt when Jesus washed their feet? How would you feel if Fr Des washed your feet? It must have felt really strange for them but Jesus wanted to share a very important message about serving other people. What can you do to show that you are helping or serving others?


Write down a list of ideas in your book. Think of ideas you can do at home, at school and for the wider community – we will talk about them this afternoon.

Scripture: Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet

MATHS


As our theme for this week is Remember Me we will be looking at maths number facts that it is important to remember. Today I want to you to start with your times tables. Pick one that you are not very confident at remembering. (For me it is the x7 times table.) 


Practise it several times by writing it out on paper, look at the patterns that you can see. Can you make up a song to help you remember it? Then have a go on TT rockstars, can you get quicker by practising in different ways. Get someone to test you to see how quickly you can answer.
There are lots of songs that will help you to practise if you type in times table rap.

EASTER CARDS


Spend some time this week making an Easter card for your family. There are lots of interesting ideas on the internet. I have included one design below...


You could make the cross using the computer programme you used in class with Miss Mountain (Wordart.com).

Choose the cross template then type in words that really celebrate the sacrifice that Jesus made, for example Love, serve, Servant King, Christ, Lord, Alleluia.  


If you cannot access the computer program, try writing the words on the blank crosses using different coloured pens and different size writing.  


After you have made your cross think about the background you want to use, this one is using cheerful colours to show that although parts of the Jesus’ story are sad we know that he died to save us all.

PE


It was brilliant to see so many of you joining in with the PE lesson. Take some time to get some exercise today, out in the garden if you can. Have lots of fun jumping and building your controlled sequence but make sure you follow the safety instructions carefully.

Friday 26th March 2021

Please Note: There will be no Zoom Sessions today. 

We have made it to the weekend with quite a bit of sunshine! Hope you are all feeling well and staying safe.


LITERACY


Make sure you have completed your script. Check the success criteria, look back the pages from Wednesday, can you make any improvements to make it even better. Remember to check your spellings and your capital letters and full stops. Every author always finds a way to make his or her work even better. Read your script out loud, does it sound like an argument? If you have someone in your house that you can act with, put on the play for an audience (maybe you could use teddies).

MATHS

We will continue to look at time but today we are thinking about how long it can take us to do things. Hopefully you will have a little fun working out whether to measure in seconds, minutes or hours. Perhaps you could time yourself completing different activities like round the garden or watching a tv programme?

SCIENCE


We have had a look at the bones in the human body but today you can find out more information about the organs in the body. Listen to the lesson and then work through the worksheet information and quiz below – what will you be able to teach me on Monday?

REFLECTION TIME


Last week we started to look at the powerpoint about feelings and what we can do to help ourselves make better choices. Remember emotions can be really complicated and mixed up but there are some good things you can to help yourself feel better. Spend some time today writing down a list of things you can do when you are feeling fed up, grumpy, angry or sad. It might be to eat your favourite chocolate bar, talk to a friend, have a bath, listen to some music, whatever you think will work for you. Be creative with your list, use pictures as well as words to make a poster of ideas that anyone else can use. Let’s see how many interesting ideas we can find.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, get lots of fresh air and stay safe and well.  I look forward to seeing you all on the Monday zoom.

Thursday 25th March 2021 - ZOOM Sessions today will be at 9:30 and 2:30

It was really lovely to see so many of you yesterday and it is important that we get some time to talk to each other. Hopefully you will have finished your diary entries from Palm Sunday – please remember to send your finished work to our class email : class3@stgerardsprimary.org


LITERACY


Today is script writing day. Use your planning to write the argument between Fib and Lucy. Remember to set the scene at the beginning by writing a sentence showing where the characters are. The layout is important with the character’s name clearly at the side next to the words they say. Put your stage direction in brackets to share how the characters are feeling or what they are doing. Once you have written it (in your very best writing) check the steps to success to see if you need to make any improvements. Maybe you could test your script with someone in your house to see if it would work.

Image description

MATHS


We will try Oak Academy Maths again, hopefully it is slightly better than listening to me talk for ages! You will need to look at the clocks carefully to work out the time to the nearest minute. What types of clocks do you have in your house? Do they all say the same time? My computer clock is slow, what do you notice?

PE


Its Thursday so it’s a PE day, make sure you get some exercise, it will always make you feel better. I have included a link to gymnastics do help you get more ideas creating sequences in the hall. Make sure you are careful where you exercise and follow the instructions.

If you don’t fancy gymnastics get out into your garden and plan a different fitness routine that we can share with everyone – make sure you email it to the class email address.

READING DETECTIVES


"Skyscrapers"


Read the text out loud at least twice. Make sure you understand what you are reading, ask a grown up if there are any words that you are not sure how to say or what they mean. Then have a go at answering the questions, keep going back to the text to check your answers. Remember some answers will be easy to find and some you will have to think about.

Wednesday 24th March 2021 - ZOOM Sessions today will be at 9:30 and 2:30

Hello Class 3 I really did not expect to be setting up work for you at home so soon. Hopefully it will not be for long and everyone will stay safe and healthy. Remember to log on for our zoom meetings at 9:30am and 2:30pm today.


LITERACY


We will continue with preparing our script about the fight between Lucy and Fib. Read through the attached sheets they will give you a few more ideas to add to your planning...


The discussion continues between the two characters until it becomes a big argument that Sam and Amy start to hear. 


Spend today reading through the ideas and add to the planning sheet so that you are happy you know exactly what the two characters will say. Add on your ideas for stage direction too – maybe you could use a different colour on your planning sheet to show it.

MATHS


Over the next few days, we will look at time starting with an Oak Academy Lesson use the link button. This is the first time we have used Oak Academy for maths lessons and I would be very interested in what you think. Remember to listen to the teachers instructions carefully. As well as the worksheets and questions throughout the lesson, I have also set you a task on MyMaths so you have plenty to do. There is a link to that at the top of this page.


As always take your time, work through the lesson before you complete the homework.

GEOGRAPHY


Unfortunately, we will not be able to work on our group communities for a while so why don’t you have some fun at home and make your own version? Remember it needs to be community for the future so be as creative as you like. If you don’t want to make a whole community maybe you could focus on just one of the buildings using any materials that you have got around you. Have some fun.

RE

Next week we will be celebrating Holy Week, a chance to reflect on the last week of Jesus’ life. Some of you will remember the Journey through Holy Week where we visited different classroom for thinking stops – can you remember what was in each classroom?


The first stop was Palm Sunday, which we will celebrate this weekend. Read the scripture and watch the video clip. Imagine that you were in the crowd watching Jesus arrive. How would you feel? What might you see around you in the noisy crowd? Imagine you were lucky enough to spend a few minutes meeting Jesus, what would you say to him? What might he say to you?


Your task is to use your imagination and write a short diary entry describing everything that happened and how you felt to be there. Try to include as much detail as you can.
