I’d like you to begin today’s Stilling Time by watching and listening to the following song:


Now, I’d like you to access the Getting-Ready-to-Go-Big-2020-1 home challenge that we have been working on over the last two weeks. There will still be some of the challenges that you haven’t done so have a go at one or two of them depending on how long they take you.


Transition – Google Classroom

Yesterday, I assigned you your first piece of work on Google Classroom which is in support of our transition work. If you log on to your account you’ll see it there. The due date is next Friday (19th) at 3pm but you can do it at any point between now and then. Once you’re finished, you’ll need to submit it. I’m really hoping to get 26 pieces of work submitted.

LI – to consider my hopes and worries for my move to secondary school.



Please do Mr Garvey’s PE challenge for today.



LI – to know some of the names that faiths other than Christianity give to God.

Muslims believe there is one God (Allah) and they give him 99 beautiful names to describe his nature and characteristics. Please watch the following YouTube clip which gives all 99 names for Allah (written in English at the bottom of the screen). Which names are your favourite? Why? Record your ideas in your Home Learning Book.

Hindus believe Brahman is the supreme God who controls the universe. Brahman, who is limitless, manifests himself in many forms and therefore Hindus appear to worship many gods with different physical appearances, different names and characteristics. However, Hindus believe they are all part of the same deity. Can you think of any similarites with Christian beliefs about the Holy Trinity?  For example, Vishnu restores, Shiva destroys, Brahama creates, Ganesh is the remover of obstacles, Saraswati is the goddess of learning, Lakshmi is the goddess of good fortunes and well-being, Agni, the fire god, and Indra wields a thunderbolt and is a protector and provider of rain. Hindus are devoted to the god who inspires them most.

Watch the following YouTube clip and look really carefully at the images of the Hindu gods. Think about the objects they carry, their clothing and colour which all symbolise the various aspects of their story, character and powers. At first glance the Hindu gods seem to be very different to Christianity and they are. However when you look more closely at the names, attributes and character, many similarities can be found.

After watching the clip, choose one of the Hindu gods and find an online image of them that you can draw and colour in (do this in your Home Learning Book under today’s LI). Once you have drawn your picture, annotate around it with similarities and differences between the Hindu god you have chosen and the Christian God. Use one colour for similarlities and one colour for differences.

Don’t forget to check out today’s Learning Review and thank you to all those who have shared work with us this week. We have been really impressed with everything we’ve seen! Remember, you are all (children and parents) doing an amazing job in very difficult circumstances. Thank you for all you are doing and have a well-earned rest this weekend!
