Home learning – Monday 1st February



This week most of our reading sessions will involve reading chapters from our book, Journey to the river sea. Today we would like you to practise your fluency when reading so you will be looking a two 60 second reads. There are vocabulary, retrieval, summary, inference, prediction and comparison questions to answer for each text.



What do we know about story world so far? Today, we’re going to ask you think about how Maia thinks and feels about her world. Watch the video of the lesson here. Task 2 asks you to go to a link here about Manaus, so feel free to do that at the right point. The main task today is to create a map of where all the places we have visited so far are, and annotate it with descriptive information and Maia's feelings about them all.



Today, you are going to be learning about metric measures. Click here https://vimeo.com/504804646 to access the White Rose video. A PowerPoint version has also been attached below. Complete the fluency, reasoning and problem solving – see resources below.

Today we will be exploring the question: What did Jesus teach his followers about how they should live?


One day Jesus saw the crowds following him, so he sat down on a hillside and began to teach them. These teachings have come to be known as the Sermon on the Mount and are recorded in the gospel of Matthew and Luke. It contains some of Jesus’ best known teaching and instruction for living. The Sermon on the Mount is often summarised as ‘Do to others what you would have them do to you’ as most of what Jesus taught in this message was about personal relationships and how people should behave towards one another. See the resource below, which will help you to answer today’s question.
