Home Learning Platform

Hello Year 5.

We have finally made it, it is the final week of Lockdown learning! One more week for us at home, let’s make it the best one yet! I am so proud of the great effort you have put into your home learning tasks.

We will be meeting today on google classroom at our usual time of 9:15am. See you then.

Let’s get this final week of home learning underway. Today we will focus on Maths, English, Music and RE. During tomorrow’s google meeting, I will be giving feedback on Maths and any other misconceptions.


This week in maths we will be working on place value and rounding. Today, your first task recaps rounding and then the second worksheet and video looks at the year 5 objectives. Make sure you watch both videos and complete both worksheets.






In this lesson, we will plan our biography on Harriet Tubman, who led hundreds of enslaved people to freedom. We will use our previous notes from Lesson 4 (Thursday 25th February) and collate them into a plan ready to write.


This lesson will begin with the same Indian lullaby sung in canon, followed by a review of Tin Tal. Then, we will learn to speak a composition, and perform it within the Tin Tal cycle.


Today we will look at the second part of the Eucharistic prayer. There are a number of Eucharistic prayers that may be used at Mass on Sunday.  There are some written specifically for children.

In Eucharistic prayer II, after everyone has joined in with proclaiming the Mystery of Faith, the priest continues the prayer, offering to God the Father the consecrated bread and wine which is Jesus Christ’s own offering.  It is a prayer which remembers Jesus.  This is part of what the priest says,

“Therefore, as we celebrate

the memorial of his Death and Resurrection,

we offer you, Lord, the Bread of life and the Chalice of salvation,

giving thanks that you have held us worthy to be in your presence and minister to you.

Humbly we pray that, partaking of the Body and Blood of

Christ, we may be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit.”

The priest goes on to pray for everyone including those who have died.

I have put the prayer into a PDF below.

Answer these key questions (we will discuss these during our morning task):

Q             What is being remembered in this prayer?

Q             What is being offered?

Q             Why is thanks being offered?

Q             Why do you think that the host/bread is called the bread of life?

Q             What is the priest praying, for himself and all the people?

Q             What do you think it means to be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit?

Your task today is to rewrite this part of Eucharistic prayer II, simplified in your own words, can you say where in scripture you might find information about some of the beliefs mentioned?

I’ve created a matching task to simplify some of the prayer already, match these up and use these in your work.

Finally, I would like you to write your own prayer of remembering and thanking Jesus. We will use this in our next collective worship.

Finally, you will receive your spellings for this week in our home learning tomorrow.

I hope you all have a lovely day.

Take care,

Mr. Craig.
