Maths Friday 27th March

 

Today we would like you to try some mixed addition and subtraction problems that will require you to complete more than one step. Just like in the previous days, I would like you to set out the work using the formal method. You could also use your knowledge of place value to support you by drawing images to help you with your answers. If you would like a challenge then why not try to subtract numbers with up to 6-digits or create your own word problems of your own that would require more than one step to complete them. Send your work back for us to see by using FreeFlow. I may even attempt some of the word problems that you send in. Don't forget to have a go at the addition and subtraction Super Movers video attached to Wednesday's post.

English Friday 27th March

Try to write this only using your text map and without checking back to the original text. It would be great if you could take pictures of your learning for us to see by using FreeFlow. As it is Friday today remember to check in with Spelling Frame to try their spelling test for this week's spelling rule. 

RE Friday 27th March

 

Today I would like you to research the following Bible stories:

Praying on the Mount of Olives, arrest, four trials (Jewish concil, Pilate, Herod and Pilate again), the crucifixion and the burial in the tomb. Use Luke's Gospel chapters 20-23 to help you with this. I would then like you to vote on whether you think the evidence suggests this was either part of God’s plan or a consequence of events that happened during the week, e.g. did Judas betray
Jesus as part of God’s plan or because he was jealous and wanted the bribe? Did Jesus spend time in the Temple teaching because it was part of God’s plan or because the people asked him to? Did Jesus get angry in the Temple because he was afraid of what was about to happen or because he was angry with the traders for cheating people? Or was Judas’ betrayal also part of God’s plan for Jesus?
