Happy Friday everyone!!
We have made it to the end of our first term of 2021! It has been a bit of a strange one but we are so proud of you for the amazing hard work you have completed! We have loved seeing all your fantastic pieces of work as well as your lovely smiling faces- all be it through our screens!
We have got all our fingers crossed that we can see each other again very soon, but for now have a well-deserved rest over half-term. Remember to keep safe, happy and well! You are all incredible! Well done!
Now lets begin our Friday with a Wake and Shake- this one is called Jump Up!
Phonics today is a review of everything we have learning this week, that includes our double letter words! Here is the letters and sounds video for you to watch and follow.

As you have worked so hard with your phonics this term. Why not try and test all that you have learnt by playing the Buried Treasure pirate game!
For handwriting today we are looking at writing the tricky word 'be'. As always, have a go at writing it first, then try to put the word into a sentence. After, can you make some cross word shapes that would fit the right tricky words- you could test somebody at home or get them to test you! Have a look at my example.
Today we are going to look at a miracle. Can you remember what a miracle is? That's right it is a marvellous event where something wonderful happens. For today's RE lesson your learning objective is to listen to the parable ' Jesus calms the storm'.
First, can you think back to a time when there was stormy weather? How did it make you feel? Were you frightened or calm? What noises did you hear? Were they loud or quiet? Discuss these things with an adult at home.
Now, watch the video below 'Jesus calms the storm'. After watching the video, tell a grown up how you think Jesus's friends felt during the storm? How did they feel once it had passed?
Understanding the impact
The story tells us that Jesus was working hard and that he needed to rest, he found peace on the boat with his disciples. Listen to a piece of music from this list and recognise how it makes you feel, does it bring you peace?:
‘Storm’ from Four Sea Interludes by Britten
Storm section from William Tell Overture by Rossini
Storm: The Hebrides Overture by Mendelssohn
Calm: Pachelbel’s Canon
Calm: L’Arlesienne Suite No1 by Bizet
Now you can interpret the story in which ever way you like. You might like to create a boat using play dough or junk modelling, perhaps you would like to retell the story using water play or maybe you could involve some musical instruments and scarves to act out the storm!
Alternative to RE
Listen to the story below, 'The storm whale'.
Now you can interpret the story in which ever way you like. You might like to create a whale using play dough or junk modelling, perhaps you would like to retell the story using water play or maybe you could involve some musical instruments and scarves to act out the storm or the whale!
