Last Week's Star Learners!



Today we are learning about perimeter. There is a great lesson here to recap what is perimeter, and in this lesson you will look at measuring perimeter. There are also activities and PowerPoints on Teams, for you to complete.


Today I’d like you to read from the beginning of the book, up to “…fought and argued noisily. All the time.

Whilst you are reading, be thinking carefully about the characters of Rose and Jack. Afterwards, in Teams you will find your activities.

Topic (R.E.)

In R.E. today we will be thinking about Lent and how people give of themselves. Start by reading the story of this man, Andrew Parker (you will find it in Teams).

After you’ve read the story, answer these questions:

How do you feel about Andrew?

How did Andrew give himself for others?

Do you know anyone who gives themselves for others, perhaps in small but important ways? What do they do?

Why do you think people are brave and give themselves to others?

In today’s live lesson, you will talk about some Saints who gave of themselves. You will need to draw them and describe what they did.




We are continuing with perimeter, please check the slides in Teams, there there is a lesson here – which is very helpful.

Afterwards, you have some activities to complete in Teams.


Please read Slide 7 to Slide 15 looking at the descriptions of the Tunnel.


Use the senses sheet in Teams to describe the inside of the tunnel from the story.

Topic (Science)

What would happen if we didn’t have a skeleton? Invite children to share their ideas. • Go through the information on the slides explaining that without a skeleton we would be a mess of skin, muscle and organs on the floor! The skeleton supports the body and keeps everything in the right place. It also protects some of our internal organs. Can you think of any organs that are protected by our skeleton? Go through the answers on the slides (brain, lungs, heart, spinal cord). • Some animals do not have a skeleton inside their bodies. These animals are called invertebrates. Can you think of any invertebrates? How do they move and protect themselves? Children to think, pair, share their ideas. Go through the examples on the slides of a lobster, snail and worm. • Tell children that today they will be researching some different invertebrates to find out how they are supported and protected without a skeleton.

ALSO: Design a science POSTER to explain how The Human skeleton supports and protects




Today we will be continuing to learn about perimeter. There is a lesson here, and then look at your worksheet and in Teams for today’s work.


READ Slide 16-24 the end

 Rose finds Jack as a stone statue – PREDICT what may have happened to him? Share ideas. How does Rose help? What does this show us about their true relationship?

STUDY the hidden images in the forest – what can you see?

DRAW and describe – what can Rose see in the mysterious wood?

SHOW what Rose was thinking and feeling when she saw Jack as a stone statue (thought bubbles)


Think about the ending – they smile at each other. What is Jack now thinking/feeling about his sister?

Topic (Geography)

Geography – Volcanoes Lesson 2

STUDY Volcano slides/powerpoint

Show children images of volcanoes that are erupting. Ask your class what they see in the pictures and what happens. • Ask children to discuss what happens when a volcano erupts. • Explain to your class how the Earth is made. Discuss the layers of the Earth and where magma (lava) comes from. • Explain to your children how a volcano erupts. Discuss the process involved and show the diagram on the slide. • Discuss with your class the different types of eruptions and show diagrams to explain these. • Talk with your children about the harmful substances that escape when a volcano erupts. • Explain to your class that people live in areas where volcanoes are. Ask your class how their lives would be affected when a volcano erupts. • Show an image of a town near a volcano and discuss the issues the people of this town may face if the volcano erupted. How would they survive the eruption? What would they need to do?
