Today I would like you to log into Purple mash using your login details at the front of your homework book.
Using all the different tools we have been using in class can you create a Christmas picture? Look at the ones below to give you some ideas.
Week beginning 3rd November
We are going to think about things that are we like that we have in common with our friends and things that are different.
We presume all boys like football and all girls like dancing but this isn't always true.
If you are boy
with your mum or sister think of 3 things you both like
if you are a girl do the same with your dad or a brother.
write down the similarities in your homework books.
We are thinking abut what makes something precious.
There are things which are precious because of our faith - Muslims - Qu'ran, Star and Moon
Christians - Bible, Cross
Jewish people - Torah, Star of David
There are things that are precious because of when we got them or who gave them to us.
For example -
Mrs Taylor has a Teddy which is very precious to her as it was a present from her Grandpa who died when she was a young girl.
Mrs Tyldesley has a ring which is very precious as it belong to her mum.
Mr Barker has a special book full of stories which was given to him when he was a baby.
Draw something which is precious to you in your homework book and write under your picture an explanation for why it is special to you.
