Main Lesson

Our story this half term is ‘Rapunzel’ by Bethan Woollvin.

We are writing a set of instructions about how to defeat a witch.

Yesterday, you decided what you are going to tell your reader to do in order to defeat the witch and drew the six steps on your plan.

Today, we are going to write our heading, equipment subheading and list of all the equipment that is needed to defeat the witch.

It will look like this.

Write your heading and subheading. Underline them.


How to defeat a witch



Now you need to look very carefully at each picture on your plan from yesterday. What is happening? What equipment do you need to be able to do it?

Write all of that equipment in a list down your page like the list in the example above. You can use bullet points if you want to.

You will probably have between 8 and 10 things.

Ask for help with any difficult spellings.

5. Maths

Warm Up




Ask an adult to mark it. Here are the answers.

Main Lesson

Our unit is about measuring mass, volume and temperature.

All the sheets that you need are inside the envelope that you collected from school last week.


Today, you are going to compare volume.

You are going to use <, > and =. Remember that the crocodile always wants to eat the most.

You need to know the difference between capacity and volume.
Capacity is the amount a container can hold.
Volume is the amount it is actually holding.

You are going to use the language ‘quarter’, ‘half’ and ‘three-quarters full’ to describe and compare volume.

Talk through the PowerPoint slides together to make sure that you understand. You do not need to write them in your books. It is like when we sit on the carpet in class to talk about our learning first.

Here are your activities.

6. Science

Today you are going to be learning about Rachel Carson and making a fact file about her.


7. Prayer Service

Gospel: Matthew 11:25-30

At that time Jesus said, “Father, Lord of heaven and earth! I thank you because you have shown to the unlearned what you have hidden from the wise and learned. Yes, Father, this was how you wanted it to happen.

“My Father has given me all things. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.”

Gospel reflection
What do you remember from today’s reading?

Today we hear Jesus calling all people who are working hard, who are tired and struggling to come to him. Why do you think he does this?

Jesus knows that we all have times when we find life difficult. We all have times when even though we try hard, we can’t do something. We all have times when we are tired, fed up and would like to give up.

Can you think of a time when you have felt like this? Did anyone help you or comfort you during this time? Who helped you? What did they do?

Jesus says his yoke is easy. He does not mean an egg yolk! This yoke is spelled differently. It is a sort of wooden bar that farmers around the world use to make it easier to pull heavy ploughs. So Jesus is saying that he will help us.

Jesus says in today’s reading that he is always there to comfort and support us. That when we are tired or finding things difficult, we can turn to him and find rest.

What do you think that this means? If we take our worries and the things that we find difficult to Jesus, he will be there for us.

How do you think we can share our worries, or the things we find hard, with Jesus?

We can share our worries in prayer. And we can pray for help during the most difficult times.

How does it make you feel to know that Jesus is there with us when things are hard?

Just knowing that we are not alone can make a big difference when we are finding life hard. God is with us always, when we are alone, but also in the people who help and support us.

So, this week, let’s remember we can turn to God when things are hard. But also, let’s look after others who are finding things difficult and do our best to help them. We can show them that they are not alone by the way we treat them.

Perhaps you could pray for all those who are affected by the coronavirus pandemic across the world.

What will you do this week to help someone who is finding life difficult, who is tired or struggling?
