Hello Fir Class
We hope you are well and we trust you are continuing to work hard. It seems as though some of you are really using this opportunity to acquire new skills - please see the PowerPoint presentation below as an example. It is also lovely to read your stories and admire your pictures and we have attached a story that we received this week.
It is so great to hear of the things you are doing with your families. There are now just three more weeks of work. Please push yourself to complete as much as possible so you can finish with a a sense of accomplishment.
We still miss you in class.
Wishing you all the very best.

Please watch the attached video on Christianity and then read the attached information below.
Judaism is the world's oldest religion. There are about 15 million followers who are called Jews. It is one of the oldest monotheistic religions, teaching the belief in one God.
Both Christianity and Islam are similar to Judaism. These religions believe in one God and the moral teachings of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), which includes the Torah.
The laws and teachings of Judaism come from the Torah, the first five books of the Hebrew Bible. Some stories were passed down through word of mouth and later written in the Mishnah, the Talmud, and other works.
The Torah is the most important holy book of Judaism. The Hebrew Bible is a collection of writings called the "Tanakh".
The most important teaching of Judaism is that there is one God, who wants people to do what is right and care for others. Judaism teaches that a person serves God by learning the holy books and doing what they teach. Judaism teaches that all people are made in the image of God and deserve to be treated with kindness and respect.
Members of this religion are called Christians. It is a monotheistic religion, meaning it has only one God. It is the largest religion in the world and is based on the life and teachings of Jesus.
Jesus was a carpenter and teacher in ancient Judea. He was killed by being nailed to a cross (or crucified), under Pontius Pilate, the local Roman leader at the time. His life and followers are written about in the New Testament - part of the Bible. Christians see the Bible, both the Old Testament and New Testament as very important. The Gospels or "The Good News" are the first four books of New Testament that are about Jesus' life, death and rising from the dead.
Christianity has been an important part of the shaping the world. As of the early 21st century, Christianity has approximately 2.2 billion followers, which is about a third of all people of Earth.
Have a look at the images below of past Sports Days. Answer the questions below and try to think of your own.
1. Choose one child from each picture. What do you think they are feeling? What is the evidence to support your point.
2. How old do you think these pictures are? Where do you think it is?
3. Do you think these Sports Day pictures look fun? How do you feel the adults who were those children feel about their old sports days?
4. What are the similarities and differences between the Sports Days that you have experienced and the ones in the pictures?
5. Can you think of a highlight or memory from a previous Sports Day that you will never forget?
Science - Changes
Please find three photos of yourself at different stages of your life. If you can't access any photos, please sketch yourself as these times. Next to each photo I would like you to write down what you were doing and how you might have been feeling at the time the photo was taken. I would also like you to try and think what you might have been able to do at this stage. For instance, whether you could feed yourself, talk, walk, take turns, write, make decisions, empathise, sympathise, play with friends, etc. A list will be fine. Then, I would like you to draw three more pictures showing what you would like to be able to do. For instance, you might draw a picture of yourself at 18 next to your own car. You might draw a picture of yourself at 40 with your own family. It will give us a chance to see what it is you want to do in your life.
This week I would like you to make a word search or crossword, using all the French food names that you have learned over this topic. A crossword will be that bit more of a challenge, as the person taking the crossword will need to remember the name and spelling of the food themselves. If you want to make your word search more of a challenge, instead of writing a word bank at the bottom, draw images of the food instead, so the person completing the word search will still need to recall the spellings.
Tudor-style houses have a very distinct features which make them easy to spot, even today. This week I would like you to design, make and evaluate a model of a Tudor house. I left this topic until the end, as I SO wanted to be in school with you all to do this. Sadly, that is no longer a possibility, but I hope you have a fantastic time doing these at home. I made a Tudor house at Manea School when I was in Year 5 and it is a stand out memory of mine from my school days. Please see the attached slides and worksheets for guidance. You will most likely not have all of the materials that are suggested in the slides (such as mod roc) but the joy of this project is that a lot of alternative materials could work. There are many cool ideas for making Tudor houses online, if you fancied doing a little research beforehand. If you do complete this activity PLEASE send a picture of your house in to us - we would love to see them.
