RE: What do Christians believe about God?


Follow the resources below to explore this weeks lesson: Caring for Creation.


The Story of Adam, the first man.


The Bible says that God made the first man and gave him a beautiful garden to live in - the Garden of Eden.


Can you build or create  "garden" of trees, flowers and fruit, you can cerate this in any media you choose, playdoh, paint, crayons. Draw or create a figure which represents Adam into the garden.


God was like a loving Father to Adam, and Adam loved to talk with Him. God gave Adam an important job to do. He told Adam that he was to be in charge of this beautiful world that God had made, but he must also look after it and take care of it. God had made many wonderful animals, birds and insects. One by one he showed them to Adam, and Adam gave them each a name. Even though he had so many animals for company, Adam was lonely, so God made Eve, the first Woman, to be his wife and friend.


Questions to discuss: 

What do you imagine the world was like before people? How would it be different to how it is today? 


Create a poster describing ways we can look after our World - just like the important job God gave Adam. You might like to use the song below for some inspiration!

RE - What do Christians believe about God?


This week in RE we will look at the story of Creation. 


There is a story in the Bible which Christians believe expresses their key beliefs about creation these are: 

God created the universe.

The story is called the six days of creation and describes what God did as the world was created.

The last thing that God created was humans.


Christians believe that God expects humans to care for His world because it belongs to God.


Watch the video link below to learn all about Creation: 


This is a story from the Bible. It is important to both Jews and Christians.



The Bible says that God was really pleased with the perfect world that he had made. Some of the things that people make and do are spoiling our world. What things? What can we do to make this better? 


Present your ideas in your RE book in any way you choose. You could design a poster, create a spidergram or mindmap or draw a picture with an explanation. 



Using the programme below (copy and paste the link) - can you create a computerised painting of something to do with Space? Use your imagination - maybe you could draw one of the Planets, a rocket or even use this programme to draw a picture of your Planet you have thought of for English!


Remember to send a copy to Mrs Smith on Class Dojo!

Have a look at my poem below to give you some ideas! 


My Jar of Courage by Mrs Smith, 


For a jar full of courage I will need, 

Some big gulps of breath to help me breathe, 

One or two smiles from a friend, 

This will help me make a perfect blend,

A few words of kindness will be a great start, 

I know those words will fill up my heart,

A sprinkle of bravery poured in from a spoon, 

and finally a light beam caught in the jar from the Moon.

PHSE - Being Healthy


Last week we looked at some of the ways to keep our bodies healthy which included eating a balanced diet!


This week I would like you to think of ways that you not only keep your body healthy - but also your mind! What things do you do that help you, feel calm and relaxed, make you feel happy and make you laugh? 


Create a poster showing me all the ways you keep your mind happy and healthy! 


Some ideas that I do to keep myself happy and healthy:


* I read lots of books, adults books and lots and lots of children's books. 

* I make a healthy smoothie! I really enjoy making a healthy smoothie, I know when I drink it, it will put a huge smile on my face! Yum Yum!

* I play board games with my family - I know when we play UNO or Dobble there will be lots of laughing.

* I dance with my children or my friends - you will have all seen Mrs Smith dancing around the classroom with Mrs Knight, Mrs Burt and Mrs Frost, lots of times you've all joined in!  It helps me focus and helps me find myself funny! There is always time for dancing! 

* I turn off my computer, my work is very important to me and sometimes I can find it hard to stop. I know in order to be the best teacher I can be I need a rest from the computer. I go and spend time with my family, with Watson and often go for long walks with them all. 


What do you do to keep your mind healthy?




Physical Education: 

Log into your REALPE login and choose a session to join in with! Send Mrs Smith a picture or message on DOJO and let me know what you've been up to!

Christian Value: Courage.


(Please note - not all these tasks need to be completed at the same time)


Our Christian Value this half term is Courage.


Task One: 

Can you research what the word courage means? Can you think of any words that mean the same thing.


Task Two:

Write the word 'Courage' into a cloud on a piece of paper - think of all the times you have had to show courage in your life, write them down around the cloud. 


Some ideas of when you have had to show courage might be: 

* Your very first day at school - maybe you did not know anyone and were feeling a little bit wobbly. 

* When you had to go to the doctors - maybe you do not like seeing the doctor very much and again this makes you feel a bit wobbly. 

* Maybe you've had to tell the truth about something when you did not do the right thing (that happens to every single one of us!). 

* Maybe you had to tell a grown up when you thought something was not right. 


Task Three: 

Read through some of the Courage prayers uploaded below. Write your own prayer about Courage and send it over to Mrs Smith on Dojo. 



Art: Colour Chaos Mondrian.


In art we are going to start looking at the works of Piet Mondrain, he is an artist that really liked using Primary colours. You will find out more about this in the PowerPoint below. 


Can you create a collage of using Piet Mondrain's art work as inspiration? I cannot wait to see them. 

Physical Education: Gymnastics


Use the resource below to practice some gymnastic skills - how many animal movements can you make up? Can you remember any of the animal poses from Tatty Bumpkin yoga to help you think of some animal movements? 


Remember before you start to clear a nice big space where you cannot bump into anything and that you warm up by stretching your body properly. 


If you would rather please complete a Joe Wickes previous workout from his Youtube challenge in preparation for his new classes starting soon!
