English – Today we are writing our Hot Write. Please write a poem based on the theme you wrote about in class on Friday. Pay attention to how you want the audience to feel, and make sure that your adjectives fit this objective. On your success criteria will be Figurative language (similes, metaphors and personification) and expanded noun phrases. When you complete this work, please bring it into school so that we can stick it into your English book.

 

RE – In this topic, we are looking at whether creation and science are complimentary.

Briefly look at genre by looking at a range of text types-newspapers/letter/email/fiction books/poems/manual for a piece of technical equipment etc.

Match the text type to the source-who might have written it. What audience would they have?

Read GENESIS 1:1-2:3 draw the events as they occur.

Sum up the key message writing 7 key words onto their sketches and a brief explanation of their ideas on the back. What does this story mean? How does it make you feel?

  1. Coben offers Blake 3/4 of his cake or 10/16 of his cake.  Which is a better offer? Explain your answer.
  2. Mrs PH wins the lottery.  She gives 2/5 of her fortune to Miss Welch.  She gives 3/10 to Mrs Knights.  Who received the most money?
  3. Isla has a pie which she has cut up into 8 equal slices.  Niamh has a pie which is the same size but she has cut it up into 4 equal slices.  They both ate 3 slices of their own pie.  Who ate the most?  Prove it!
  4. Which is larger, 2/3 or 3/6 ?  Draw a diagram to prove it.
  5. Matei makes a ham and pineapple pizza and a peperoni pizza. Both pizzas are exactly the same size.  He cuts the ham and pineapple pizza into 16 slices.  He cuts the peperoni pizza into 8 slices.  His family eats 11 slices of the ham and pineapple and 6 slices of the peperoni pizza.  Did his family eat more pineapple or peperoni pizza?  How do you know?

English – Today we would be performing our poems in class. Have a go at performing your poem to people at home, thinking about tone and making it sound interesting. Which words do you want to emphasise?

 

RE - Some people think that Genesis cannot be true because of the scientific account that contradicts it but that depends on how you interpret Genesis

Think about previous learning that Christians celebrate God as creator through harvest but also in art and music. Listen to the popular Hymn When I in Awesome Wonder

Children need to know that there are many Christians who are scientists. Watch the interview with Dr Jennifer Wiseman-resources and discuss. .

How often do we stop and wonder about how amazing the world is? Can you make a connection between this experience and how reading Genesis 1 might help to inspire Christians to care for the earth and to worship God?

Ask children to identify the main ideas that they have learned about Christian beliefs about God as Creator?

Summarize the key points.
