Good morning Oak Class. You’ve reached Friday of the first week at home. Hope you’re all adjusting. Remember there won’t be any work set for the weekends; just have fun and relax.

PE – Begin your day with the Joe Wicks workout. Mr Garvey and myself are aching all over! Hope you’ve been giving it your all too.


So far this week you have watched and researched TV News Reports and planned and written your own report about the Tempest. Now for the fun part; I know how much you love drama work…

Present your report as though you are the reporter live at the scene. Why not dress up in a smart suit? You could rope in family members as the eye-witnesses and create sound effects for the wind. The sky is the limit! Film your report and if possible, share it! Have fun!!!


Following this week’s focus on statistics, I want you all to complete the Statistics Review from Target Your Maths. Open the Word Document using the following link:


If you want some extra work after this, do some of the statistics work on Mathletics.

Stilling Time

The weather is still absolutely beautiful so take the opportunity to get out in the garden again to do the following Standing Sailors activity:

Take of your shoes and socks. Standing and tuning in to how your body feels standing, here and now. Noticing any sensations in the soles of your feet and then tuning in to the rhythm of your breath as it moves in and out. Keeping both feet on the ground, as the breath moves in, letting the body move onto the right foot. As it breathes out, swaying so that the body weight is now on the left foot. Swaying with each in and out breath.

RE – Who was Jesus? Who is Jesus? The following task does not need to be done in one go (we wouldn’t get all this done in one RE lesson at school).

I want you to use the following Bible passages to help you answer the question – Who was Jesus? Record your ideas – a list of names for Jesus – in your workbook.

Isaiah 9:6-7King James Version (KJV)

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

Philippians 2:6-11 (NIV)

6 Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!

9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

Hopefully you will have created a list of names for Jesus such as: Prince of Peace, servant king etc.

Next, add to your list with any other names for Jesus that you, or members of your family, can think of. Consider what the different people who met him might have called him, e.g. the disciples – teacher, friend; someone healed by him – healer. Are all the names positive? Some people may well have called him things like trouble-maker, rebel, etc.

By now, you should have a significant list of names for Jesus. Task – Using these names, write a poem that answers the question, ‘Who was Jesus?’

Well done for all your hard work this week – I’m proud of you all. Have a lovely weekend! Keep smiling!
