Use the worksheet to help you with this task.

Cave elves have to make occasional journeys to the market in order to buy provisions or seeds for their gardens. What 6 things might you find in a cave elf’s knapsack?

  • List what you think an elf might take in their knapsack explaining why you have chosen them.

For PSHE today we’re going to carry on with the curriculum planning and the next topic is Safety in the Home.

Have a look at the picture of the unsafe kitchen, point out or circle all the dangers in the kitchen.

Think about:

  • Why can the kitchen be an unsafe place?
  • What do you think are the main dangers in the kitchen?

 

Main task – Create a poster or information pack on being safe in the kitchen. You can do this on paper or on the computer if you want to.

Golden Time:

Well done for another week of remote learning, I know it’s challenging, but I really appreciate all the hard work you are doing. Spends sometime this afternoon doing some golden time activities, playing games, drawing, making something, whatever you want to do.

Thursday’s tasks

Here is the work I would like you to complete for today.

 

Literacy:

Using the ingredients on the worksheet, create a menu for a cave elves’ lunch. You can do it on the worksheet or on a blank sheet. Use the text to support your work, looking for the kind of food the elves might eat. On your menu try and include:

  • A few options of food for them to choose from
  • Pictures of what the food looks like
  • Adjectives to describe the food
  • Are you going to split it into starter, main and dessert? If so remember the headings.

Spend half an hour today reading a book of your choice. Discuss what you have read with an adult or someone else in your house.

In today's video I have shown you 3 examples using the grid method and 3 using the written. Please feel free to just watch the method you prefer rather than the whole video as it's quite long.

Also, feel free to watch the previous weeks videos for more examples when solving the calculations.

Mixed methods

TTRockstars:

I would like you to spend some time on TTRockstars today, while you are on it have a go at the following tasks:

  • Challenge a friend
  • At least 1 sound check
  • Take part in an arena

 

Well done to those of you that have been going on TTRockstars, I keep checking how you are getting on most days.

French:

Using the worksheet attached, have a go at find and matching up the animals with the animal’s French names and completing the tasks to go along with it.

RE:

What did Jesus teach us about being greedy and generous?

Activity 1 – Create mind maps (one for greedy and one for generosity) thinking of words that link to them. Can you add at least 10 words to each?

 

Have a read through the story of the Widow’s Gift taken from (Mark 12 v:41-44)

 

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd

putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts.

But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few pence.

Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into

the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her

poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”

Think about the following questions:

  • Who gave the most in the story?
  • Why might people think the woman gave the most?

 

Activity 2

One way of being generous is by giving to charity.

There are four Christian charities:

  • Christian Aid
  • The Bible Society
  • The Church of England’s Children’s Society
  • The Salvation Army

Christians like to give a percentage of their money to God’s work, in church services, this is usually done during collection where the money is collected in and a prayer is said once the money is received. This money gets donated to different charities and to the upkeep of the church. Christians believe God cares for all people equally, so giving to charity is a way of supporting those most in need.

For the second task:

  • On the coin outline, list what you think are the top 5 most generous things someone can do.
  • Extension – Can you find out how much is donated to each charity per year and what the charity uses it for?

Please watch the video below and complete the activities to go with it focusing on multiplication of 2-digit by 2-digit numbers using the written method. If you find this too challenging please use the grid method which was used yesterday. I have also provided some 2-digit by 1-digit worksheets for if you find some of the questions too challenging.
