Good Morning Everyone
I hope everyone is well this morning and gets on ok with all the work below. If you need help with anything, just ask. Please don't feel like you have to print the worksheets out, they are there as a guide and I'm more than happy for work/answers to just be written in your books and then just send me a photo of that. I know not everyone can access a printer so don't feel you have to print it. Do whatever you can.
Have a lovely day and I'll see you for both our zoom registers.
9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics. 'y' (says ee)
10:00 - 10:30 - English Writing
Learning Objective: To be able to use verbs and adverbs.
The next part of our story is where Plop flies down from the tree to ask a boy about the dark.
Given Sentence: "Go and ask that little boy down there," added Mum.
Sentence 1 - For this sentence we are going to be using an adverb to describe how Plop feels as he flies down.
What is an adverb? - it describes a verb so it tells us how something is done.
Gather adverbs to describe how Plop would be feeling. Remember they will be negative adverbs as he isn't feeling happy: carefully, cautiously, nervously, reluctantly, slowly, hesitantly...
What verbs could we use to help us describe how he would fly down? He took a deep breath. Stretched out his wings. Puffed out his chest. Swooped down. Flew down. Glided down.
Here is my sentence: Nervously, Plop took a deep breath and flew down.
Now write your sentence to tell the reader how Plop flew out of the tree.
Sentence 2 - This is going to be some dialogue between Plop and the little boy. What questions might Plop ask the boy? What do you think of the dark? How do you feel about the dark? Is the dark scary? Are you scared of the dark? Why do we need the dark? Are you afraid of the dark?
The boy likes fireworks so his reply is going to tell Plop this. Why might he like fireworks? He likes the bright colours. He finds them exciting. He likes the noise they make.
What do fireworks look like? Gather some adjectives to describe them: dazzling, bright, colourful, amazing, spectacular...
Here are my sentences: "How do you feel about the dark?" asked Plop.
"The dark is exciting because we can watch dazzling fireworks. Will you come to the display tonight?"
Now write your dialogue between Plop and the boy.
Sentence 3 - Plop goes back the nest to ask his parents to take him to the display.
Gather verbs to describe how he goes back to the nest: arriving, swooping, landing, gliding, returning...
Here is my sentence: Arriving back at the nest, Plop asked his parents to take him to the show.
Hopefully that all makes sense and you know what you need to write for this next part of the story. Get in touch if you need anything and I can't wait to read your work.
Plot Point 2 - Plop talking to the little boy about the dark.
Plop returning to the nest to talk to his parents.

1:20 - 2:15 - RE
Learning Objective: To understand the importance of the Bible to Christians.
Just before Christmas we started to think about books and why they are so special to us. We are now going to think about special books. The first book we will look at is The Bible.
The Bible is God's special book. It is all about how much God loves and cares for people. The Bible is the most important book that Christians use, because it is God’s Word, so it is always treated with reverence. Like all special books we take care of it, make sure our hands are clean before we use it and keep it in a safe place.
There are two main sections in the Bible. The Old Testament tells us about the time before Jesus. The New Testament tells us about Jesus and the beginning of the Church. Some of the books are called by the name of the person thought to have written them: Mark, Jeremiah, Peter. Some are named after the person the story is about: Job, Ruth, Jonah. One is called after an event: Exodus. Others tell you about the content of the book: Genesis (Beginnings), Psalms, Proverbs, Letters. The Bible is like a library of different books.
SOME KEY QUESTIONS
- What is the Bible?
- Why is it so important?
- How do you think we can show reverence for the Bible?
- What does the first part of the Bible tell us?
- What is the second part of the Bible about?
There are some attachments below to look at too.
- Design a front cover for the Bible that shows it is a special book for the People of God. On the back cover write a summary of what you would find inside.
