This week you are going to write a letter to your teacher to tell them all about what you’ve been doing and learning at home.

Letters need to be written in paragraphs so that they make sense and are easy to read.

In your letter, each paragraph should talk about something different. For example:

  • Paragraph 1 = what you have learnt in your home schooling
  • Paragraph 2 = what you have enjoyed doing the most
  • Paragraph 3 = what you are looking forward to when you go back to school

Letters also contain questions so that the recipient (the person receiving the letter) can write back and answer those questions. Questions start with one of the five w’s:

  • who
  • what
  • why
  • where
  • when

Questions can also start with words like ‘did’, ‘how’, ‘do’ and ‘which’ and should always end with a question mark.

First, complete the planning sheet and then start writing your letter.
When you write your letter to your teacher remember:

  • Write three paragraphs following the structure of your planning sheet. Between each paragraph leave a line.
  • Each paragraph should be between four and seven sentences long and include lots of detail.
  • Planning a letter 29.06

When you have finished your letter, you could put it in an envelope. Keep it somewhere safe until you return to school and can give it to your teacher.  Or you could ask your adult to take a photo on their phone or write it in Word and email it to:admin@stsaviours.lewisham.sch.uk  Remember to include your name!

Reading comprehension

  • This week would be the start of the Wimbledon tennis championships here in London.

You can also click through from the Church’s website.

Things you could do:
1. A local church is encouraging people to make a cross out of anything they have in the house…socks, books, eggs, pencils…and share the pictures. What can you make yours out of? Please do email in any photos of your crosses and I will share for everyone to admin@stsaviours.lewisham.sch.uk
2. You could make a cardboard box with a hole in the front into the tomb of Jesus, make 3 crosses to go on top and roll a stone in front of the hole until Easter Sunday. Then roll away the stone and place a torch or silver foil inside and then draw lots of flowers allover the tomb.
3. You could listen to some Easter songs on Youtube
4. You could draw to display in your house to remind your family of the hope that we have in Jesus.

Reflect: What good deeds did you do this week? Write a prayer to ask God to help you to get closer to Jesus in this time of Lent.

Think of when Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. If you can, read Holy Gospel according to Matthew, 21:1-11. If possible watch clips on BBC Bitesize:

Draw a picture or a storyboard to represent what happened. What would Jesus say to the people of Jerusalem?

Challenge: Draw your own palm tree leaf (template attached) and write what sort of welcome would you organise, if Jesus were to enter Lewisham today.  Take a photo and get your adult to email it to the school and we will upload it to the school website.

TOPIC – Stormy Weather:

Create a daily weather diary.  You could split this into 2 sections, one for Lewisham/ London and one for Topeka, Kansas, USA which is one of the cities in Tornado alley which we were learning about.  Are there similarities and differences?  Get your adult to take a picture of your diary (it could be a little book like we made for World Book Day or a chart) and we will upload it to the school website!
