Check out the new challenge on the PE block
Week 8 SATS!
This year is like no other
We’ve been through ups and downs
But one thing is for certain
NO SATS NO FROWNS
We’ve worked hard to learn fractions
And just as hard with nouns
Learnt about modal verbs but
NO SATS NO FROWNS
Today would have been the start
In villages and towns
Of test upon test but
NO SATS NO FROWNS
I for one am proud
And you all deserve your crowns
For what you’ve achieved
NO SATS NO FROWNS
To me you are the best
Even through ups and downs
You’ve all reached your target
And deserve your leavers gowns
Love Mrs Whitaker

Click on the sign below for your daily teaching and Learning for English, Mathematics and Foundation Subjects.
You will find some interesting lessons through BBC Bitesize. Some lessons will be going over what we have already learnt so these will be revision lessons. Others will be on topics we haven't looked at. I have completed some of the lessons and I know you will be able to follow them. If you find some of the work challenging, try a different year group.
Please send any writing or work produced as part of the daily teaching and learning to email@example.com for the class teacher.
Here is a song to help you remember what a relative clause is. After you have listened to the song, write a few sentences with relative clauses.

Some questions about these powerpoints.
- How do you think the disciples felt when they heard these words?
- What did Jesus mean when he said ‘...the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled?’
- What do you understand by the disciples being the witnesses of Jesus?
- Why does Jesus want everyone to be baptised?
- Why do you think some of Jesus’ disciples were in doubt?
- What mission did Jesus give his disciples?
- Write an eye witness account as one of the disciples. Show understanding of the account by making links to the Scripture and your experience and feelings of the events.
- Imagine you were present in Galilee and heard Jesus’ message about going out to ‘peoples everywhere’. In the light of what you heard, what would you do next? How would your actions begin to shape other peoples lives? Record your response.
