WRITING: Your writing work this week is to please listen at 9:30-10:30 to Pie Corbett on Radioblogging.net and join in with all the fun things to do. There are short activities which you add to a padlet and then longer tasks which you can start during the programme and complete after the show has ended. All the teachers from Stone are listening, commenting on your writing and also taking part! Last week there were some super pieces of writing from our pupils too. The world can see the work that you do. I can't wait to see it! Just click on the link below

PLUS......SUMDOG: Login as usual and find the next new challenge which I have set you. This week it is a times table challenge. It is open to complete from 8am Monday to 9pm Friday. Work as carefully as possible and see if you can get as many correct as possible. I will be watching. Good luck!

TOPIC: The NEW topic work set for this week is RE work, on the theme of Easter.
There are 4 tasks for you to complete.
1) Watch https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/religious-studies-ks2-easter/znkngwx which shows you 2 children from Christian families celebrating Easter. [SORRY, THIS CLIP IS CURRENTLY REFUSING TO PLAY-SO MOVE ON TO TASKS 2 AND 3 AND TRY AGAIN LATER IN THE WEEK!]
TASK to complete in your exercise books: Notice a number of actions and objects that have a meaning: they are symbols for Easter, for Jesus or for Christian beliefs. Often a symbol works as a reminder of a part of the story.
Here are 5 symbols you will see in the clip. (i) The fire burning on Easter morning (ii) Touching the stone where Jesus fell (iii) Hot crossed buns (iv) The Easter egg (v) The chicken born from the egg. What does each one stand for, or link to? What reminders do these symbols provide of the stories of Jesus at the first Easter?
Draw 5 'think bubbles' and write inside them your suggested meanings for each of the symbols.
(If you'd like to use the sheet attached below you can-or design your own)
