Morning everybody. Today, share some of the things you have been doing this week on our blog.

Have you done a handwriting sheet yet? Go on get one done.

Nearly finished my book about a time travelling spy. What are you reading?

Tell me on the blog.

(You might detect a theme here - blog!)

Good morning Y5.

 

Today, as well as the usual subjects and reading a book, have a look at the class blog. Create an avatar, tell us how you are getting on and, perhaps write a paragraph of our new story?

 

Keep doing some work online and in your book (writing) plus read a bug book.

Greetings Year 5.

 

Good to see you have been using TT Rockstars - have challenged you all - come on you can beat Mr Leather!

 

Glad to see you having a go at Education City - it has had a few problems but should settle down now.

 

We should be able to blog very soon...

 

Keep reading and doing some work online.

Hello everyone!

I hope some of the activities on Education City make sense. I know there have been problems with sites crashing but hopefully everything will work from now on. One thing you could do is keep a diary of what you do and how you feel while school is shut. Just put the date and a few lines of writing in your book, each day.

I am reading a new book about a time-travelling spy. Try to read every day and if you use Bug Books I will  look at which ones you have chosen and how you got on with the quizzes.

Good morning Year 5. It is strange saying that when I can not see you all but we can still work together using the website. Scroll down the page for instructions and reminders about how you can work from home. There are some great pictures of our last day in school as well - so take a look. 

Now, listening hands while I tell you what to do. 

 

It is still Lent - we might have to change our promises a bit but being kind to others, sharing and saying prayers should not be stopped by a virus. I am going to say a prayer every morning, before lunch and in the evening  - just like we always do in school. Perhaps you could do the same so we are still joining together?

(Our school prayer book

 

Use some of the sheets in your folder each day.

Work online - start with Education City Homework, but remember Bug Books/TT Rock Stars.

Come and See work - do one or two activities each week- they will be further down this page.

 

If our blog is set up soon, I will explain that to you and send passwords.

Read every day - real books, online books, comics, magazines, instructions for things, ingredients on food labels, recipes, the tv guide - whatever you can find. 

And remember if your pen runs out...

Good Friday (based on Mark 15:1-15)


Early in the morning, the chief priests, the elders, the teachers of the law and the
whole council had their plan ready. They tied Jesus’ hands and led him away to hand
him over to Pilate. Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?”
Jesus said, “The words are yours.”
The chief priests were accusing Jesus of all sorts of things so Pilate asked him again,
“Aren’t you going to say anything? Listen to all they are saying about you.”
Again, Jesus refused to say a word and Pilate was amazed.
At every Passover festival Pilate usually set free one prisoner. At that time a man named
Barabbas was in prison. He had committed a murder during a riot. When the crowd
gathered Pilate asked, “Do you want me to set the King of the Jews free or Barabbas?”
He knew that the chief priests had handed Jesus over because they were jealous of him.
But the chief priests stirred up the crowd and got them to ask for Barabbas to be set free.
Pilate spoke again to the crowd, “What do you want me to do with the man you call
the King of the Jews?”
They shouted back, “Crucify him!”
“But what crime has he committed?” Pilate asked.
They shouted all the louder, “Crucify him!”
Pilate wanted to please the crowd, so he set Barabbas free for them. Then he had Jesus
whipped and handed him over to be crucified.
 

  • How does Pontius Pilate try to find the truth about Jesus?
  • Why does Pilate call Jesus the King of the Jews?
  • Why do you think Jesus does not answer him?
  • Why do you think the crowd shouted for Barabbas to be released and for Jesus to be crucified?
  • Do you think this is the same crowd who greeted Jesus on his entry into Jerusalem, if so why have they changed their minds?
  • What do we learn about Jesus from his attitude at his trial?

 

Write a report from Pilate to Caesar, the Roman Emperor, informing him of the trial of Jesus. Describe and give reasons for the actions of Jesus, the High Priest and the crowd.

Read both texts - answer the questions in your book then try the activity.

The Thieves

(based on Luke 23: 26-43)


The soldiers led Jesus away. On the road they met a man called Simon.
He came from Cyrene. He was on his way from the country into the
city. They forced him to carry the cross behind Jesus. A large crowd
of people went after them. Among them were women who cried
when they saw Jesus. Jesus turned to them and said, “Do not weep
for me. Weep for yourselves and for your children.”
Jesus was nailed to a cross outside the city walls. There were two
others put to death with him, one on his right and the other on his
left. When Jesus was dying he said, “Father forgive them. They do
not know that they are doing.”
The soldiers played a game of dice to decide who would have his
clothes. There was a notice nailed to the cross of Jesus. It said, “This
is Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews!”
One of the men on the cross made fun of Jesus saying, “If you are a
real king, why don’t you save us all?”
The other man told him to be quiet because Jesus had done nothing
wrong. Then he said to Jesus, “Please remember me. Don’t ever
forget me.”
Jesus said, “I will remember you today and you will be with me always.”

 

The Death of Jesus
(based on Mark 15:21-41)
People passing by insulted Jesus. They shook their heads and said, “Come down from
the cross and save yourself.”
The chief priests and the teachers of the law jeered at Jesus, saying to each other, “He
saved others but he cannot save himself. Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down
from the cross now and we will believe in him.”
The two who were crucified with him insulted him too. At midday the whole country
became dark. This lasted three hours.
At three o’clock, Jesus cried out, “Eloi, Eloi Lama Sabactani,” which means, ‘My God,
my God, why have you abandoned me?’
Some of the people there heard him and said, “Listen, he is calling for Elijah.”
Someone soaked a sponge in cheap wine and put it on the end of a stick. He held it to
his lips saying, “Let’s see if Elijah will come and take him down from the cross.”
Then Jesus gave a loud cry and died.
When the centurion, who was standing opposite saw how he died he said, “This
man really was the Son of God.”
Some women were there watching from a distance. They were Mary of Magdala,
Mary the Mother of the younger James and of Joseph, and Salome.
They had followed Jesus and had helped him when he was in Galilee. Many
other women were there who had come up to Jerusalem with him.

 

  • What do Jesus’ words from the Cross tell us about him?
  • How does Jesus’ death help us to understand his humanity?
  • Why do you think the repentant thief asks to be remembered? What do you think he must have believed about Jesus?
  • What does the centurion mean when he called Jesus the Son of God and why do you think he said this?
  • What do you think Mary and the women felt?

Write a prayer or reflection which gives thanks for Jesus’ sacrifice. Draw a picture to illustrate what was happening.
