Good Morning Children and Your Parents.
We hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend break. Did you all manage to do something nice over the weekend? We were so pleased the weather was nice over the weekend. We have been busy planning another exciting week and this will be your last school week for this year as we will be finishing for the summer holidays. We hope you enjoy it!
Here are today’s activities:
We hope you have practiced your spellings from last week. Don’t worry as you can all have another practice before we do our test. GOOD LUCK!
This week in our spelling work we are learning to spell words ending in y. If they are nouns and we're making them plural, you will need to look at the letter before the y. If it's a vowel, just add “s”. If it's a consonant, change the y to an “i” and add the "es" suffix.
Your spelling test will take place on Friday this week because of the holidays, so you only have four days to practise!
Here is this week's spelling test:

This week we’re going to read a new story called “The Bear Who Came to Babysit”.
Here are today's tasks:
Discuss times when you felt scared. Did you feel scared during a thunderstorm? Did you feel worried at night when it was all dark? Were you ever lost at the shops?
Can you describe how it feels being scared and how you feel when the problem has been resolved?
Use the PowerPoint to read the story from the Bible: 'Jesus calms the storm'.
Why do you think the disciples were scared about what was happening?
What might the disciples have said to each other during the storm?
Why do you think Jesus told the disciples not to be worried about what was happening? What do you think the disciples might have said to Jesus after he had calmed the storm?
Some people pray to God when they are worried and scared about something.
What do you think somebody could say to God to help them not worry about the dark or if they are lost?
How do you think a prayer might help them to overcome their fear or worry?
Pretend to be one of Jesus's disciples. Write a short prayer to God thanking him for looking after them in relation to the story.
Can you describe other times that people might be worried that something bad was going to happen? Read the scenario cards about different situations, each time suggesting reasons why the person felt scared and ways to overcome the fears and worries.
What might have been said by characters during each of the different scenarios?
It’s always good to finish the day off with a story. Make sure you are sitting nice and comfortably.
We hope you've had a fab day and enjoyed all the activities. Thank you for all your hard work today!
Bye for now and see you tomorrow.
