English Task

Today, we are going to start our planning to write a newspaper report. 


You need to come up with:

- A name for your newspaper

- A catchy headline


We are also going to interview these characters. You need to come up with a suitable question and a response for each. These quotes can then be used in our reports later. 



Lila and Max's mother- Penelope Smith



Fred's Dad- Brian Jones



Con's Aunt- Tracey Peters



You could lay your work out like this: 


Q: Mrs Smith, your children are currently missing- have they ever been on their own before?


A: No, Max and Lila have never been on their own before. Max is only little and I don't know how they will survive in the wild by themselves. Every time I think about it, it brings me to tears. I am praying that they come home to me.



So, in today's lesson we are starting to use the 'area model' or you might have heard me calling it the 'grid model'.


This is a tricky one to do at home, so just try your best. You don't need to draw it all out, just put the numbers in that you need. If you find it too difficult, we can discuss it this afternoon. 


If you find it easy peasy- move on to a mastery task! 

Multiply 2-digits (area model)



Today we are learning about the Eucharist as a memorial. 


Watch the video of consecration below, then my video :)

The Consecration

The Eucharist

Watch the video clip of the Consecration from the Come and See website.  Every time the Eucharist is celebrated, Christians are keeping the memory of Jesus alive.  The Eucharist is a memorial of Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross and makes that present and real, similar to the Jewish people the events of their freedom from Egypt are made present to them each time they celebrate the Passover. 


During the part of the Mass called the liturgy of the Eucharist, in the Eucharistic prayer, the priest holds the host and says the words:


“Take this, all of you, and eat of it: for this is my body which will be given up for you.”

and when he holds the chalice he says:

“Take this, all of you, and drink from it: for this is the chalice of my blood, the blood of the new and eternal covenant, which will be poured out for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in memory of me.”


At that moment the memory of Jesus’ actions at the Last Supper are called to mind and made present and real for Christians.  These are called the words of consecration, consecration means made holy.


Catholics believe that at this point in the Mass, through the power of the Holy Spirit the bread becomes truly the body of Christ and the wine the blood of Christ.  The server will ring a bell as the priest holds ups, elevates, the host and then the chalice.  People will look up and make an act of faith and pray in their hearts something like ‘My Lord and my God’, affirming that they truly believe in the words of Jesus, when he said at the Last Supper ‘this is my body, this is my blood.’  This is the real presence of Christ.




Your task: 

  • Imagine you are writing a guide for people who want to become Catholics and are going to Mass for the first time.  Describe what happens at this part of the Eucharistic prayer giving reasons for the words, actions and symbols used.
