Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Here we are for another terrific Tuesday!  We are continuing with our book The Hobbit, writing metaphors to describe what we can see, we have a wide variety of Maths topics across our three groups, and this afternoon we have the second of our RE lessons on Salvation, focussing on the role of Judas.

So lets get started by moving our feet to the beat of the Yeti



These are your spelling for this week; they are all homophones, words which sound the same, but have different meanings. 


meet hear knot which break

meat here not witch brake

Can you think of a good way to help you remember how to spell the words using the pyramid, rainbow or shape method?




These are your spelling for this week; they all sound the same at the end but they are spelled differently. 


Optician, magician , extension, explosion, exclusion,

profession, mission, possession,  fiction, direction

SPAG: Metaphors

Metaphors are often confused with similes, but they are different in that we say something is something else rather than like something else.  Watch the video to help explain it.



Can you write a metaphor for something you can see from your chair?  Maybe the curtains are waving at you, or your toys are staring at you.

Reading Skills

Read the following text a few times to an adult then answer the questions that follow it.


LI: to include a range of similes


The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein

Read to the end of chapter 2 and chapter 3  - then look at landscape of Rivendell and then find some metaphors to describe what you can see.

For example;

The trees are soldiers standing guard over the city, the waterfalls are shafts of light pouring down, the buildings are crowns on top of the hills

Now let’s have a brain break and move with a challenge from Dennis the Menace



If you have completed the work that is on the blog, have a look at the maths pages for some extra work including reasoning questions!

Wider Curriculum: RE

LI To understand the part Judas played in the story of Easter

Watch this story about the last supper:

The Story of Easter (The Last Supper)

Why do you think Judas betrayed Jesus?  We know Jesus knew this was going to happen, How did it affect the mood at the last supper?


Judas is often portrayed as the evil man in the group, but others say he was only fulfilling what God had planned for him.


Write a list of reasons why Judas should betray Jesus and a list of why he shouldn’t.  Which side do you think is more persuasive?  What would you do if you were in his shoes?

Nearly the end of day. Now it’s time for a little quiet, prayer and reflection with our Class worship. Click the candle.





Time for a story to finish our day. Click the image and choose one to read.


Well done, that is the end of Tuesdays work.  Don’t forget to send your work to the class e-mail address or through Teams, so your teacher will be able to have a look at it and maybe put it on the hub page!
