10:35 - 11:35 Writing

LO: To be able to write commands.

 

Read the second part of ‘Oh, the Thinks You Can Think’ by Dr Seuss.

Explain that this story is about the power of our imagination.

Discuss answers to these questions:

  • What is happening in the story?
  • What imaginary things can you see?
  • What would your imaginary swimming pool look like?
  • How could you have fun in your imaginary swimming pool?

 

Main Activity:

Draw and label a design of your imaginary swimming pool/water park like the one from the book.

Give your swimming pool/water park a fun name. 

It could be flouting in the sky or in a bubble under the sea.

It could have a very high diving board; a spiral water slide and an inflatable obstacle course.

It is your imagination so the possibilities are endless.

Write a set of commands to show people how to have fun in your imaginary swimming pool/water park.

You need to include imperatives, e.g. jump, slide, bounce, splash.

You should write in the 2nd person, e.g.  you should, you must, you need to.

 

Example:

How to have fun in Sky Water.

 

You should jump very high of the diving board.

You must quickly twist and slide down the water slide.

You need to bounce and tumble around the obstacle course.

You should wildly splash about in the water.

 

Warning:

Do not do this in real life!

 

Extra Support Activity: 

Label your design with simple command phrases,

e.g. jump high, slide fast, splash about, bounce around.

 

Extra challenge Activity:

  • Use joining words to add extra detail to your commands, 

e.g. You must twist and slide down the water slide. You need to bounce and tumble around the obstacle course.

  • Use adverbs to add extra detail to your commands,

e.g. jump very high, quickly slide, wildly splash, clumsily bounce

  • Write similes to add extra detail to your commands, 

e.g. You must twist down the water slide like a slippery eel.

You should splash about in the water like a hungry fish.

 

Key skills:

  • Think about what you want to write and say it out loud first. 
  • Sound out (segment) words when you are spelling them.
  • Write on the line.
  • Use finger spaces between words.
  • Use lead-ins and lead-outs. 
  • Use capital letters at the beginning of a sentence.

Please take this time to do some outdoor exercise.

13:15 - 14:15  RE

LO: To be able to reflect on how God helps us to be kind.

 

INPUT

 

Think about the story of Levi the tax collector.  Do you think he found it easy to change his ways and to be sorry?  It is not easy to do this by ourselves, but God is there to help us, just as Jesus helped Levi.

 

Read 'God’s promise' based on Isaiah 58: 9-11 (see below).  Isaiah wrote about God’s forgiveness, even before Jesus came to earth.  He made it clear what good choices we need to make to be kind and to make ourselves and others happy. 

 

KEY QUESTIONS 

 

  1. What is God’s promise?
  2. How do you think people feel when they hear Isaiah’s words?
  3. What kind things does Isaiah suggest that we do? 
  4. Can you think of any other kind things to do?
  5. What would the world be like if everyone followed Isaiah’s advice?

 

SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES (please complete at least one of these activities)

 

  • Draw a candle or use the template below. Write words that will show how you can be kind and ‘be a light that shines in the dark’.
  • Create a promise card. Write a message to explain how you will be kind to others like Jesus. Decorate your card with pictures showing kindness to others.
