Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.

English- Skellig Based Learning

Google Classroom at 10:50am for the first 15 minutes. (Click on the Meet Link). Please attend.


For today’s English lesson we are going to focus on one of the themes we have come across in Skellig. Mina is very often talking about ‘Evolution’ and what this is. Take a look at the video below to understand some more about this topic.


Once you have watched the video about evolution and read the information about Charles Darwin you are going to create an information text about Charles Darwin. He is the man that identified how animals change over time and evolve to be able to survive in the environments in which they live. Take a look at the presentation I have attached and then either complete the sheet or produce your own in your blue lined book.


11:50 – 12:30



Title for your book: The Bowl and the Jasmine Flower


Recap: Have a conversation with a parent/carer/sibling about how Sikhs look after the Guru Granth Sahib? Think back to last week’s lesson and the video you watched informing you of the rituals and prayers that happen when the Guru Granth Sahib is being looked after.


Over the coming weeks you are going to learn about some of the Sikh stories and why they are important today to both Sikhs and non-Sikhs. The first one you are going to read is called ‘The Milk and the Jasmine Flower’. I have attached this below for you to read through.


Once you have read it think about the meaning/moral of this story and if this story relevant today to Sikhs/non-Sikhs?  
I have attached some questions for you to answer based on the text you have read – remember in class we keep the text in front of us to help us find the information we have just read about.

Be Better and Do More


Join Mrs Walsh again for your PSHE lesson – follow the video and complete the activities as you go. This lesson is going to get you thinking about climate change and the changes we can make to our world to slow down the process. You will learn about the causes and effects of climate change, thinking about the actions you can take and carry out your very own experiment.


Take a look at the video below – here you will find the lesson and the activities you need to carry out.


Activity 1 – Write down the things that you can do in your homes to save our planet – Mrs Walsh uses the examples of turning the lights off when they’re not needed or being used. What other ideas can you identify that you can carry out at home?


Experiment – You will need a piece of fruit/veg with 2 slices cut from it, 2 plastic tubs, cling film and your blue book to copy down the table that Mrs Walsh shows you in the video. You will then need to set time aside each day to update your table, this needs to be done at the same time each day to make sure you get accurate recordings of what happens to the fruit/veg.
