Morning Everyone!

Hope you all had a good weekend and are raring to go!

It was lovely to see those of you who were able to make the Zoom meeting on Friday.

I am in school all week with the Key Worker children so apologies if I don’t reply to emails / comments until later in the day.




Starter: Roman Numerals 2Do on Purple Mash

Here’s a reminder of Roman Numerals for you:



L.I. – To review arithmetic methods.

Choose from Mild or Spicy/Hot.

Have a go at as many questions as you can. Think about the best method for finding the correct answer in the most efficient way. Think:

  • Can I do it in my head?
  • Would it be helpful to jot things down?
  • Do I need to use a formal written method.

Remember –

  • read the question carefully including the operation sign e.g. is it a + – x or division?
  • check you have included a decimal point if the answer needs it.
  • check you have included a unit of measurement if needed.

  • one video to explain what ‘comprehension’ means

  • one audio clip of the fable The Hare and the Tortoise

  • three activities



L.I. – To write a character profile using evidence from the text.

Read Chapter 1- The Filling-station

You can also listen to Chapter 1 (and part of Chapter 2) here:

Use to help with any words you are unsure of such as, ‘filling-station’, ‘basin’ and ‘lavatory’. Make a note of the definition and synonyms of the word.

Based on what you have read, do you think Danny is rich or poor? Use evidence from the text to support your answer.

Now create a character profile for Danny based on what you have read in Chapter 1.

Make sure to use words and phrases from the text such as, ‘During his early years, Danny spent all day in the workshop helping his father with cars.’



L.I. -To understand the meaning of a mission. 

A mission is a task with a purpose.

Paul experienced many adventures that included being shipwrecked (Acts 27) and put in prison (Acts 16) but nothing stopped him from spreading the good news about Jesus.  This was his mission.

Watch the video below to remind you of where Paul went on his mission:

Have a go at discussing these questions with an adult:

What is a mission? Do you know of anyone who declared themselves to be going on a mission?

What were they doing?

Where were they going? Why?

What did Paul see as his purpose? Why?



A longer stilling time activity today – you can use the video below or choose some relaxing music and practise some of the yoga positions Mr Garvey has taught you.
