1. Do ‘look/say/cover/write/check’ to practise each word.

2. Note your mistakes and re – write. You could use coloured writing, pyramid writing and other strategies you have learned to help you.

3. Write each word in a different sentence. Make your sentences as interesting as you can. 4. Avoid starting each sentence in the same way.

Word Work

1) Use a thesaurus (real or virtual) and write down a synonym (same meaning) or antonym for each one of your spellings this week.

2) Look at the word ‘possession’. Using the letters in the word, can you come up with another 8 words using those letters? e.g. session

3) Have a go at creating a mnemonic! For me, ‘Tomorrow’ can be a tricky spelling. I always remember it by using a mnemonic: ‘Trails of my old red rose over window’. Can you think of your own mnemonics for this week’s spellings? Have a go at the ones you find difficult to spell and see if it works.

 

 

Over the next few weeks all of the KS2 class will be working on a new project – Anywhere Island.

During this project you will:

  • develop your problem-solving and creative thinking skills;
  • make decisions and choices;
  • use a range of geographical skills;
  • discuss your opinions on important issues;
  • let your imagination run wild and;
  • Have fun!

Each week tasks will be added to help you complete your very own ‘Anywhere Island’.

PSHE – Change

Over the last few months we have all had to make lots of changes to the way we live our daily lives.  Some of these changes have been very difficult whereas some changes we feel, in the long run, may end up being for the better.

 

Use the PowerPoint below to think about some of the changes that you have had to make recently and look at ways to help when we face changes in our lives.

LEARNING FOCUS 1: Everyone is loved by Jesus.

The Good Shepherd (based on Luke 15:3-6,7)

 One day Jesus said, “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. What do you do? You leave the other ninety-nine sheep grazing on the hillside and go looking for the one that got lost until you find it. When you find it, you are so happy that you put it on your shoulders and carry it back home. Then you call your friends and neighbours together. “I am so happy,” you say, “because I have found my lost sheep. Let’s celebrate!” “It’s like that with people,” Jesus told them. “If ninety-nine people stay close to God that’s good. But if one who has turned away from God and done something wrong says sorry and comes back to God, then that is a reason to celebrate. God is like the good shepherd, always searching for the lost sheep, looking out the person who has turned away.”

 

Imagine yourself as a lost sheep.  You hear Jesus calling you; you come out from a hiding place where you have gone because you know you have done wrong.  Like the lost sheep, you allow yourself to be led home. 

 

The Sacrament of Reconciliation brings us back to God, who forgives us and absolves us from our sins.  God’s mercy and love is like the tenderness shown in the story.  We can be sure God loves us.

 

 

  1. What did the story of the ‘lost sheep’ mean to you?
  2. Did it surprise you that the shepherd would go to find the one lost sheep?
  3. When are the times you might see yourself as the lost sheep?
  4. What does this story tell you about God?
