Learning for this week.

Below are the lessons/activities for this week. Although we are not in school we must continue to work as near normally as possible.

Please make sure you work through the lessons and activities below so when we are together again we are all in the same place in our learning.

Bug Club and Power Maths can be accessed using your Active Learn logins. Activities on Education City are updated weekly which you can also access using the logins for that site.

As always, I can be contacted via the school office or on my email – Don’t hesitate to email and let me know if you need anything to support your learning. I look forward to seeing your completed work.

When you send work please add any comments you may have about how your child/ren managed the activities. Your comments are helpful regarding what activities to use in future planning. Thank you!

Discussion –

What might a creator of these things be like? How do you know? Many people think that the world is created by God, though not all. From the images, what might God be like?  

What questions would you like to ask the Creator, if you could?  

What answers might the Creator give?

Record the answer to your most important question. 

Homework Grid:

Don’t forget there are other activities for you to do on the class homework grid.

Remember, your learning is your responsibility – work hard and don’t give up!

“I can and I will!” said the Little Red Train as it puffed up the hill.
