cheekyBonjour les enfants!cheeky

Hope you are keeping up with the daily PE session with “The Body Coach” at 9.00am each morning at The Body Coach TV, on youtube. I am enjoying it so much that I did it twice yesterday, at 9.00am and again just before lunch!

It’s time for your spellings test today, so show the list of words below to an adult and ask them to test you on them, just as we do each week in school.

decide, describe, difficult, different, disappear, early, earth, eight

I have attached your 5 a day maths in a powerpoint for today.

For today’s maths, I would like you to access the Oxford Owl website link that I have put on our class page (scroll down to find the link).

In the games section you will find Circle Fractions. You need to match the equivalent fractions and copy them down into your exercise book. Why not make it even more interesting, and impress your adults, by finding some other equivalent fractions to add to them!

In the games section of Oxford Owl you will also find Equivalent Fractions. This is a game where you need to find and match the equivalent fractions. You can reset both of these games and play them as many times as you like!

In addition to these tasks, please spend around 15 minutes on duolingo French, bug club and times table rockstars.

English tasks for today:

Red group: Read the extract, Waiting, from the text book Focus on Comprehension, page 6, and examine the picture. Answer the questions from the red and green sections on page 7. If you are feeling really enthusiastic you could have a go at the yellow section questions as well!

Blue and green groups: Re-read the extract, Stories From The Past (again), from the text book Pupil Book 4, page 4 and 5 and examine the pictures.

Complete task 4 which you will find on page 7. Remember to set your informal letter out correctly, use interesting and informative paragraphs and think about your punctuation. Impress me by including some fronted adverbials and some direct speech.

You also have another RE task to complete today.

Read the text below and then answer the questions in your exercise book.

Lent offers Christians the opportunity to make changes in their lives to become more like Jesus. There are three particular ways that the Church recommends: firstly, prayer and reflection, through reading scripture and spending more time each day speaking to God. Secondly, fasting, that is giving up something and thirdly, almsgiving, that is doing good for others.

If Christians want to be followers of Jesus, then they must become aware of the needs of other people and be prepared to see what they can do to help. In order to help them be self- disciplined during Lent, Christians make Lenten promises, saying what they hope to do during the six weeks of Lent.

If you have a bible at home, read the scripture, Matthew 6: 2-4 About giving.

QUESTIONS

  1. What opportunities does Lent offer the Christian and why?
  2. What three things does the Church recommend to Christians to practise during Lent?
  3. How do you think prayer helps a Christian to follow Jesus and prepare for Easter?
  4. How do you think fasting helps Christians?
  5. Why do you think Christians give alms?
  6. Why do you think that Jesus advises people not to go around boasting about their giving?
  7. What do you think it means to be self-disciplined and how is it achieved?

 

Have a good weekend and I will post your next lessons on Monday morning!

Don’t forget to create your avatars and leave your messages on the school blog. I am looking forward to hearing from all of you and finding out what you have been doing!

winkBonjour year 4!wink

Wow what a lovely sunny day we had yesterday. I hope you all managed to spend some time in your gardens having some fun.

Hope you are all ok.

How did you make an adult smile yesterday? I can't wait to find out all of the wonderful ideas you had.enlightened

Hope you are all enjoying PE with the body coach each morning and are remembering to spend some time on Bug Club and Times Table Rockstars.

I thought I would give you a little bit of RE today. You need to read the text and then answer the questions in your exercise book.

Lent is time set aside to focus on spiritual growth which prepares Christians for Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday.  They strive to be more faithful to the Gospel by living in God’s way.  It is a time when Christians practise self-discipline in order to grow in God’s way.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday when Christians go to church to receive ashes. The ashes are made from burnt blessed palms used in the Palm Sunday celebration of the previous year. The ashes are blessed with Holy Water.  While the ashes symbolise penance and contrition, they are also a reminder that God is loving and merciful to those who call on Him.

As the priest blesses the ashes he prays: -

Dear brethren (brothers and sisters), let us humbly ask God our Father that he be pleased to bless with the abundance of his grace these ashes, which we will put on our heads in penitence.  O God, who are moved by acts of humility and respond with forgiveness to works of penance, lend your merciful ear to our prayers and in your kindness pour out the grace of your + blessing on your servants who are marked with these ashes.

The priest sprinkles the ashes with holy water, then places ashes on the heads of all those present who come to him, and says to each one: “Repent, and believe in the Gospel.”

  1. When does Lent begin?
  2. What is Lent a time for?
  3. What happens on Ash Wednesday?
  4. What does the priest say when he places the ashes on a person’s forehead?
  5. Why do you think Lent is celebrated every year?
  6. What do you think you can do in Lent in order to live in God’s way? 

yesKeep those hands sparkingly clean!yes

Missing you all and looking forward to seeing you all back at school in the not too distant future!
