Monday - RE and Music
RE – The Parable of the Two Builders (Matthew 7:24-27).
'What would Jesus do?' and 'Inspirational Leaders' is our RE topic for this half term. Today, watch the video about the Parable of the Two Builders (Matthew 7:24-27) which teaches that Christians should build their lives on the words of Jesus (video link in resource sheet below). Have a think about the kinds of things that guide people in deciding how to live. What things help shape your life?

Play the song and find and move to the pulse. Answer these questions in your learning handbook after you have finished listening (in complete sentences).
Tuesday - Science
Science – Classification of vertebrates
• Carl Linnaeus (1707–1778) was a Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist. He laid the foundations for traditional classification and binomial naming systems.
For the second part of your Science lesson today, choose a favourite animal or plant then research its binomial name and how it is classified according to the ranking system Linnaeus developed: kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species. Key questions to consider - does your animal or plant have all the ranks or does it have different ranks? In your books, we want to see an example like the one below:
Binomial name - Homo sapiens (‘wise man’ in Latin)
Kingdom – animal;
Phylum – vertebrate;
Class – mammal;
Order – primate;
Family – hominid;
Genus – homo;
Species – sapiens.

Spanish - Desayuno En El Cafe (At the Café) – Making a meal out of it!
For Spanish this afternoon, log in to Language Angels using your personal log-in that has been emailed home to you (emailed to your parents by Mrs Smith on Friday 08.01.2021). Once on there, you will see the Desayuno En El Café games area. For this week, as an introduction to the topic, we would like to you begin to familiarise yourself with the spelling and pronunciation of the terms by playing the Picture Memory game. When you have played the game a few times and are familiar with the terms, select some of your favourite foods that are featured and draw your perfect meal in your learning from home book. Under each food item, write both the Spanish and English translation. Don’t forget to write the date, title (Making a meal out of it!) and present your work in a ‘Take Care’ way.
