Good morning Year 5.

Thank you for your fantastic work so far this week. Today we will be focus on Maths, English, Geography and RE. I will be feeding back on Maths tomorrow along with any other misconceptions.


Our third lesson will focus on drawing line graphs. Please follow the video, make sure to pause it and watch it more than once if you need to. Once you’ve watched the video, complete the worksheet provided.

Drawing line graphs



In this lesson, we will learn about tigers’ diet and habitat in preparation for writing a non-chronological report. Make sure to complete the worksheet below.

English task

Once you’ve completed this, please continue with the next part, this is where you take the information you have gathered and you can now write your paragraph about the tiger’s diet:

I look forward to reading this paragraph. This will be an important part of our final write up of our non-chronological report during tomorrow’s lesson.


Today I would like you to create your own case study all about the volcano on the island of Montserrat. You will remember that we looked at Montserrat during our Geography lesson on the 28th January. You can find Montserrat (a Caribbean island) on the map below:


A case study is very similar to a non-chronological report although it may contain more facts and data.

I have created a worksheet for you to complete first, this shows you the location of the Island of Montserrat. You could colour the island and create your own key at the side of the map. Also, include a brief description of where Montserrat is located.

Then, print out or look at the case study template below, familiarise yourself with what is needed in each section (what sort of information do you need to write under each sub-title) then watch through the following videos, picking out key information you could use in your case study.

You could also do your own further research through reliable sources (books, the internet etc).

Finally, complete the case study worksheet all about Montserrat.



Today we will focus on the events of the Last Supper.

You need to follow this blog below, step by step.

Mark’s Gospel tells us how the disciples prepared the Passover or Pesach for Jesus. Remember the work you did from our last RE lesson. If possible, Jewish people like to celebrate this occasion in Jerusalem.  Jesus had entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey and being greeted by the people shouting ‘Hosanna’.  Now it was time for Jesus and his disciples to prepare for the feast of Passover.  The disciples would have gathered the food, the lamb, bitter herbs, salt water, unleavened bread and wine.

This is the account of the Last Supper from Luke’s Gospel; 22: 14-20

When the hour came, Jesus took his place at the table with the apostles. He said to them, I have wanted so much to eat this Passover meal with you before I suffer! For I tell you,

I will never eat it until it is given its full meaning in the

Kingdom of God.

Then Jesus took a cup, gave thanks to God, and said, ‘Take this and share it among yourselves. I tell you that from now on I will not drink this wine until the Kingdom of God comes.’

Then he took a piece of bread, gave thanks to God, broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in memory of me.’

In the same way, he gave them the cup after the supper, saying, ‘This cup is God’s new covenant sealed with my blood, which is poured out for you’.

During the Last Supper the events of the Exodus would have been present in the memories of Jesus and his friends; they would have recalled how God led his people to freedom.  Jesus would have celebrated Passover every year of his life, but this time it was different.  He introduced something quite new as he blessed, broke and passed the unleavened bread to everyone, telling them it was his body and then the cup of wine saying it was his blood and that it would be shed, be sacrificed, for everyone.

He asked that they repeat his actions in memory of him.

Watch this animation of the events:

Answer these questions on paper or digitally and remember to hand this in…

Q             What was so different about the preparation for Passover this time?

Q             What was different about this celebration of Passover?

Q             Do you think the disciples understood what Jesus said and did at the time or only when they looked back and why?

Q             What do you think was the significance of Jesus breaking the bread?

Q             What do you think Jesus meant when he said his blood would be poured out for them?

Q             Why do you think Jesus wanted to leave this kind of memory with his disciples?

Now look at these famous pictures of the Last Supper, in the boxes next to these, I would like you to describe the following:

What are the symbols used?   Who are the characters depicted in the picture?  What are they doing? Compare the picture to one of the Gospel accounts of the Last Supper (I have provided the Bible references below for you to look up in the Bible or you could google search these), tell me, what matches and what you think has been changed or added.
