We are starting a new book called Street Child by Berlie Doherty. This week you will be reading chapters 1-4 and these chapters have all been recorded onto one video for you to listen to. We will also provide the text on some days. Today you will be thinking about your first impressions by annotating the front cover and the first section of text from the book, which is called, ‘Tell me your story, Jim’. Watch the video presentation where you will be guided through the lesson.
Today you will be learning to find the area of a parallelogram. (To support your learning with this you will need to have completed the maths work on finding the area and perimeter of quadrilaterals and triangles from the end of last term – if you have not completed these activities please do them before this task.) Click here: https://vimeo.com/508494691 to access the White Rose video. A PowerPoint version has been attached below. Complete the fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions provided – see resources below.

This term we are going to meet Taryn and her family, who are Humanists. We are going to find out about how being a Humanist affects their decisions and choices in life. Humanism isn’t a religion, but a way of thinking and living. Humanists do not believe in God or gods. They believe that this is our only life, so it is very important to live a worthwhile, happy life for ourselves and others. Watch the video presentation and then complete the activities, which help you to explore what humanism is.
