Have a go at Joe Wick’s 5 or 8 minute children’s workouts (see The Body Coach channel on youtube) or choose one of the activities from the ‘Be Active’ area on Remote Learning page.
Today we will be learning the new digraph ‘ai’. Watch Miss Levy’s Phonics video on Teams. You can find it in the ‘Remote Learning’ channel under Files. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil whilst you are watching so you can join in.
What do you know about fire fighters? We are going to go on a virtual tour of Cambridge fire station to see what their job is really like!
Today I would like you to create your own 2D shape fire engine picture. You can use the template below or create your own then add each shape to match the picture. What shape is it? How do you know? You will need to add the ladder and hose.
Then add the following labels: hose, siren, light, window, cab, ladder. Encourage your child to use their sounds to help them write phonetically.
See the example below…
Play ‘Heavy or Light’ Powerpoint quiz with your child (see below). How do we know it is heavier? How do we know it is lighter? How can we tell it is balanced?
Today, I would like you to sort everyday objects that you can find in your house into heavy or light. You will need to feel each item and decide if it is heavy or light. Is it heavy or light? How do we know?
Challenge: Can you order 3-5 objects from heaviest to lightest?
Go for a walk and talk about the objects you see e.g. a twig, a stone, a leaf. Is it heavy or light? Which one is the heaviest/lightest?
Act of Worship
Welcome to Worship and light the candle.
Jesus would always use his stories as a way to get people thinking. Think about these questions which come from looking at the story of The Good Samaritan.
Who is my neighbour?
What does it mean to love them?
Do I really have to love everybody?
There have been many difficult situations in our world, where people say they were helped by a ‘Good Samaritan’. A ‘Good Samaritan’ is given to people who go out of their way to help, protect or support a complete stranger, often putting the needs of the stranger before their own.
Christians believe that these Good Samaritans are copying the example Jesus set out through his story and are teaching people to ‘Love your neighbour’. Jesus’ wish was that we are all neighbours, even those living in other parts of the world.
So how can we care for our neighbours that live further away?
Your child might like to make a string of connected paper people to remind themselves that we are all connected and all need to be there for each other whatever our differences whilst they listen to this song. God gives us so much, how can we share that with others around us?
Jesus, friend and brother, You know what it is like to be hungry and thirsty. You know what it feels like to be a stranger who is made unwelcome. You know the suffering of all who have lost everything. We pray that we may show love for our neighbour and be closer to you.
