R.E.

This week, we are going to explore Salah (prayer) and how Muslims pray.

Take a look at this video:

These are one type of prayers – many Muslims may take time to pray more personally to Allah after the formal prayer.

In your home learning book, create a poster with one prayer position with a thought bubble of what they might be thinking.

Then, reflect and answer these questions:

Why do you think people pray? How do you think it makes them feel?

What does prayer mean to you?

PSHE

This week, we are going to look at different types of job and careers.

Activity 1: Take a look at the job cards that are below and rank them in order to the most important job to the least important job.

There is no right or wrong answer, it is your opinion!

Then, move onto the next activity...

Activity 2: Look at the salary cards and match them to who you think earns this amount per year.

Think about these questions while matching:

Who do you think earns the most and why might that be?

Who contributes the most to society?

Who should earn the most based on the job they do?

Finally, move onto the last activity...

Activity 3: Take a look at the matching jobs and salary list.

Out of all these jobs:

Do you think these professions are paid fairly?

Who contributes the most to society?

Who should earn the most based on the job they do? Why?

In your home learning book: Write down 3 jobs you feel make the biggest contributions (help) to society, giving a reason why you think this.

I feel the 3 jobs that contribute the most are: ________, __________ and __________. I feel these contribute the most because ________________.

For example: I feel the 3 jobs that contribute the most are: doctors, nurses and fire officers because they help people when they need it (doctors and nurses) or risk their lives to help save others (fire officers).

This week we are going to being thinking about dreams we have for the future.

With someone at home, discuss this using the sentence starter to help you express your ideas:

‘If I won the lottery, my dream would be…’ – jot them down in your workbook so you remember them!

Reflect over the ideas you shared, which dreams might you have that do not use money OR do most of your dreams rely on having money to make them come true?

Have a listen to this song from Matilda (the musical)...

What would you like your life to be like when you are grown up? How might it be different?

What might you be able to do that you can’t right now? (e.g. Learn to/be able to drive a car, learn specific skills at college/university for a chosen profession/job etc) 

What might you like to be able to do?

In your workbook, reflect about the dreams you have when you are grown up, what you will need to do in order to be able to achieve your dream and how you dream makes you feel. Here are some sentence starters to help you:

When I grow up, my dream is… To achieve my dream, I need to…

I feel… about my dream/My dream makes me feel...

Here is an example: When I grow up, my dream is to work with animals or become a vet. To achieve my dream, I need to know about different animals and I can do this by studying about animal biology (study of animals) at college/university before I can take care of animals. I feel passionate about my dream. 

R.E.

Last week, we looked at Shahadah and its importance to Muslims. This week, we are going to explore Zakah, and how this is used to help support their fellow Muslims within their communities.

Take a quick look at this video to discover more...

Discuss at home:

Why do you think Muslims choose to give away so much of their money?

How do you think it makes them feel?

Do you think their lives are made more challenging because they have to do it?

PSHE

This term, our PSHE unit is called ‘Dreams and Goals’ – this is a chance for us to reflect on the year we have shared so far, thinking about what we have enjoyed most and think about things we can be doing now to help work towards our goals!

For this week, think back to the start of Year 5 and onward – what has been most memorable to you? Was it a trip we went on? Taking part in a class assembly? Being part of a club? Maybe a lesson or a unit we completed? Why is this?

R.E.

Before the half term, we explored what helps us in our journey of life and how this is similar to the beliefs Muslims have as they see the 5 pillars of Islam as guidance to help them in their daily lives. This week, we are going to look at the first pillar, Shahdah and its significance to Muslims.

The Shahdah is one of the most important beliefs in Islam and forms one of the five pillars of Islam. The Shahdah says ‘I witness that there is no other god but Allah, and Muhammad is the prophet of Allah’. 

Discuss at home: What does the Shahdah show about the prophet?

The mosque plays the Shahdah to call people to prayer. When a Muslim baby is born, it is the first thing they hear. Traditionally, their dad will whisper it to them.

Discuss at home: What do you think your parent should have whispered to you as a baby? If you think it is the Shahdah, what is the next thing they should have whispered to you?

Read the story of ‘Bilal the first Muezzin’ that can be found below this.

Discuss at home: What mattered most to Bilal? How do you know?

What matters most to you? What belief would you stand up for even if people were being cruel to you?

Why do Muslims have a 'call to prayer' before prayer?

Why do you think Bilal is such a much-loved figure for many Muslims?

How might hearing the Shahdah every day affect the life of a Muslim?

PSHE

What jobs do you think these people have?

You do not need to answer this in you work book but have a discussion with someone at home:

What do you think a teacher, doctor, shop work or an actor should look like?

Are we right to judge someone based on their appearance?

How are we discriminating against someone when we judge them based on their appearance?

RE

Last week, we thought about experiences that help us on our journey through life. As part of our learning this week, we are going to explore ‘What helps Muslims on their journey through life?’

Muslims refer to the 5 pillars of Islam to help them in their daily life. These 5 pillars are an expression of ibadah (worship / belief in action). The five pillars of Islam provide a structure for Islamic daily spiritual life. Islam is like a house held up by five strong pillars with central themes of purification and sharing with others.  Muslims must not only believe in the five pillars, but also act on their beliefs.

How is this similar to the five experiences you chose last week?

In your work book, draw each pillar and answer the following questions:

  • What is it?
  • How often does it happen?
  • Where does it happen?
  • Why is it important?
  • How does it help a Muslim in their journey through life?

This week, we are going to discuss the links between racism and discrimination, and what it means.

Both Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King experienced both racism and discrimination for who they were. Take a look at the video clips to find out more:

But, what do these words mean?

Racism is prejudice or discrimination against someone of a different race based on the belief that one race is better than another.

Discrimination is the unfair treatment of different types of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or gender.

You do not need to answer these questions in your home learning book, have a discussion with someone at home:

What is racism and discrimination? How do they link with each other?

Where do we see racism in real life? Why is racism unacceptable?

How can we stand up to racism?

R.E.

In this unit, we will be considering the question ‘What is it like to be a British Muslim today?’. We will be discussing what helps us on our journey of life, the key beliefs of a Muslim and the meaning behind the five pillars of Islam.

This week, we are going to explore what help us through our journey in life.

Imagine you are on a road and in front of you is a path that stretches out taking you on your journey through life - you can draw this in your workbook, see an example of this below. 

What kind of things help you through your journey? Place these on your road! These could include learning to ride a bike, school closure, being reunited with family and friends after lock down, falling off a climbing frame, passing exams – good and bad experiences.

Out of the experiences you have placed on your paths, which five are the most important? These can be physical (e.g. health) or moral/spiritual (e.g. love).

Why have you chosen these five?

Here is Simone's example...

Topic - History

Athens vs Sparta
Question: Which city would you have lived in and why?

This week for History, you are going to be writing an argument to explain which Ancient Greek city you would have lived in and why.

Athens and Sparta were two Greek Cities with many differences.

Below is a worksheet with information about the life of boys and girls in both.
Use this to help you write you argument explaining which city you would have wanted to live in and why?

Have fun!

Topic - PSHE

Look at the list of job below:

nurse             plumber                    builder                       teacher                      soldier

childminder              doctor                        bus driver                 police officer

You do not need to answer these questions in your home learning book but have a discussion with someone at home:

Which are ‘male’ jobs? Which ones are ‘female’ jobs?

Why do we sort jobs in these ways? Is it fair?

Are there reasons we think that women are suited to certain jobs and men to others?

Is there a job the you think only a man can do? Is there a job that you think only a woman can do?

Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of V.E Day! 

As part of our topic learning this week, we are going to look at the history behind V.E Day and why it is celebrated!

Watch this video clip from the BBC Learning Page where it explains how ‘Victory in Europe’ or V.E. Day came about and a recount from Alan, who was a young boy at the time, explaining what it was like to hear this news!

Sadly, because of social distancing restrictions, most of the VE Day celebrations and street parties have been cancelled BUT let’s still mark this special occasion and honor the men and women of WW2.

You can make your own special VE Day ‘Great British Bunting’ to display in your window at home!

Below are all the instructions you need to get started using any paper, cereal boxes, string, ribbon, sweet wrappers, felt pens, colour pencils, paints or whatever you may have at home!

You can decorate your bunting with pictures of whatever inspires you, whether it’s those who fought on the front line or worked hard on the Homefront, or whether it’s a celebration of enduring peace or your own personal hero.

History

Science

During this half term, we are going to explore different Greek scientists and how their ideas had an impact on our lives today!

This week we are going to look at the works of Euclid. He was a Greek Mathematician who developed a simple way of understanding geometry (different types of shapes, like circles, squares, triangle etc…) – in fact, some said he was the ‘Father of Geometry’!

Check out this video to learn more about Euclid and his work!

As part of your task, create a fact file page about Euclid giving information about:

  • An intro about who he was (when he was born, where came from in Greece, when he died).
  • His work in geometry (what was his book ‘Elements about’, how did he teach others about shapes).
  • How his work about geometry helps us today.

Here are some more cool videos to help you with your task:

This week, we are going to look at some examples of Greek pottery from the British Museum.

  1. Browse through the different pottery designs and look at their patterns - what story is it trying to tell?
  2. Pick four pottery designs you like and make an observational drawing of the patterns featured - you may want to split your page into four sections so you have enough room to sketch each pattern/design out. Take a look at Simone's example below.
  3. Once you have sketched your favourite designs, think about the question below and express what your opinion is:

Artefacts, like these Greek pots, are a useful historical resource to study from - why do you think this is?

 Look at Simone's example to know how to layout your sketches:

Writing

In writing we are learning to write an explanation text. Here are the things you need to do this week: 

Step 1:

Watch this amazing video about how crayons are made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmiRjmbnn8Q

Step 3: 

Practise saying the model text in the video using only the text map to remind you. Once you have it perfect, perform it for someone at home. 

 

Grammar

‘Do’ is a very common verb. It has two past tenses: ‘did’ and ‘done’. Here are some of the ‘do’ rules:

  1. When writing in the past tense, the simple past tense that we use is ‘did’.

E.g. I did, you did, he did.  

Not ‘I done it’.

 

  1. In the past progressive tense, ‘do’ uses the verb ‘were’ or ‘was’. Here the correct form of ‘do’ is ‘doing’.

E.g. I was doing, you were doing, he was doing.

Not ‘I were doing’ or ‘you was doing’.

 

  1. ‘Done’ is used in the present perfect tense.

E.g. I have done, you have done, he has done.

Not ‘I done it’ or ‘I have did it’.

 

Task: All the sentences below have used ‘do’ incorrectly. Using the facts, correct the sentences and write these correct sentences into your workbooks.

  1. Simone was done her workout in the morning.
  2. I done my online learning this week.
  3. “I done it!” shouted Bethan.
  4. Have you did your homework?
  5. Joe done his work as quickly as he could.

Extension: there may be more than one way of correcting the sentences. You can write down these other ways too!

Here is an example of how your poem could start: 

Water Everywhere

Rain drizzles to the earth, soaking everything, soaking into the earth. 

Gently, it bubbles up and seeps down where it ripples into rivers. 

In homes, it gushes from taps and gurgles down peoples throats.
