RECIPROCAL READING

There are four stages to our reciprocal reading:

1) Predict – what do you think this text is going to be about?

2) Clarify – look up any words that you don’t understand using a dictionary.

3) Question – write a question that can be retrieved from the text. Write your answer using a full sentence.

4) Summary – summarise the text in two sentences.

15th -19th March 2021

Instead of a reciprocal reading session this week, I would like you to link the following reading to our previous learning about World War II:

Learning Intention for Wednesday 17th March 2021

To be able to show understanding and make links between Scripture and belief in the Resurrection of Jesus.

Last week we studied the story of how Jesus raised Lazarus from death:

John 11_1-43

We are continuing with our topic ‘Death and New Life’

The Gospel of Luke (24:1–9) explains how Jesus’ followers found out that he had been resurrected. Read the whole chapter:

Luke 24

Create a Venn diagram to compare the two Gospel readings. What is similar about these readings and what is different?

Mrs McEvoy and Mrs Sonko have shared this wonderful calendar that will help us to reflect during this very important time:

HISTORY

Week beginning 15th March 2021

There will be no history lesson this week.

I am leaving the last history lesson here for you to revise if you wish to do so as we will be building on this learning in future lessons. 

To learn how Ancient Greece politics affects the world today

This half term we are going to focus on how the Ancient Greek politics affects the world today. You will be able to understand the system of democracy in Ancient Greece, as well as being able to contrast democracy today with democracy in Ancient Greece.
