2) It is necessary for a shirt to have 1 collar and 2 sleeves. (i.e. necessary has 1 c and 2 s). This is a way I remember how to spell necessary. Come up with your own explanation for how to remember the spelling of one of the other 7 words.

3) ‘muscle’ has the –cle ending. Can you think of or find 6 other words with –cle at the end that you might use in everyday language?

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 3

God gave Moses some commandments and rules for his people.  These helped the people to love God and live in peace with each other.  In the Book of Deuteronomy 6: 4-9, which is part of the Torah, God gives his people a special reminder of their responsibility to love God. It is a prayer called the Shema.  It helps the Jewish people to focus on the day ahead and on the day that has just gone.  It is a commitment to belief.  It shows belief in God.  The Shema is recited twice a day by Jewish people and is a special prayer in the synagogue. 


Listen Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is one.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your souls and with all your might.

These words which I am commanding you today must remain in your heart.

Teach them to your children and speak of them when you are at home, when you are travelling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Tie these words as a sign on your hand; let them be a sign in the centre of your head.

Also write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6: 4-9


What does God want? (based on Mark 12:28-31)

The chief priests and scribes heard about the work and teaching of Jesus. They tried to find some way of getting rid of him, but they were afraid because the people followed him. So they sent some Pharisees and scribes to ask him questions and try to catch him out. One of the scribes asked him, “What commandment is the most important of all?”

Jesus replied, “The most important one is this, ‘Listen, Israel! The Lord our God is the only Lord. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength’. The second most important commandment is this: ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself’. There is no other commandment more important than these two.”


If you want to be my friend - Mark’s gospel tells us that three times Jesus told his friends about how he must suffer and die. They found it very hard to understand.

 Jesus began to speak to his disciples about his suffering and death. He told them that the Son of Man was to suffer greatly and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the scribes and that he was to be put to death. Peter took him aside and began to protest. But Jesus turned round, looked at his disciples and said to Peter, “You are thinking in the way people do, not in the way God does.” (based on Mark 8: 31-33)

Jesus made his way through Galilee with his disciples. He did not want anyone to know where he was because he wanted to speak to them for a second time about his death. He told them, “The Son of Man will be handed over to those who will kill him.” But they did not understand what he said and were too frightened to ask him. (based on Mark 9 : 30-32)

Jesus and his disciples set off for Jerusalem. The disciples were afraid and so were the other people with them. For a third time Jesus took the Twelve aside and spoke of the things that were going to happen to him. “We are now going up to Jerusalem and the Son of Man is about to be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes. They will condemn him to death and hand him over to those who will make fun of him, spit upon him, whip him and put him to death.” (based on Mark 10: 32-34


  1. Why do you think the Pharisees and scribes ask Jesus what commandment is the most important of all?
  2. What do you think it means to love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength?
  3. What has Jesus added to the Shema and what difference does that make?
  4. How do we love our neighbours as we love ourselves?
