Maths Starters Week 3

In Maths we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme. The next step is for the children to learn how to divide 2 digits by 1, you can access White Rose Maths for free which gives you varied fluency, reasoning and problem solving questions. Please see below for a PowerPoint to aid this and a worksheet (week 1, 2  and 3 attached below).  

Science: Plants



In R.E we have been learning about the parables which Jesus told. The task for this week is for the children to retell the parable of The Lost Sheep. The children could also begin to think about the Wedding Feast of Cana and could write a recount of this. This was Jesus' first miracle and Jesus' didn't want to begin His ministry but Mary insisted that He help - John 2:1-12.


This week is Holy Week so we would like the children to read the following accounts: 

Matthew 21:1:1-11 and then write in role as an onlooker as the crowds welcome Jesus into Jersualem. 

Luke 22:7-38 Thursday is Holy Thursday when Jesus celebrated the Last Supper. Then Jesus washes the feet of the apostles (usually done by a servant: revealing His message of service "The Servant King") before going to pray in the garden om the mount of olives (The Agony in the Garden).

-The children could write in role after reading each of the scripture verses.

-The children could also create a booklet all about Easter and why we celebrate it ensuring that all the special days are included.  


- The children can make Easter cards. 

- The children could also use Leonardo Da Vinci's famous painting as a stimulus for their art work.
