Swallow Class - Friday 8th January
Good Morning Swallow Class,
I hope that you enjoyed yesterday’s learning. On Monday morning at 11am, Miss Felton will be leading our very first class Microsoft Teams session. We are both looking forward to getting these started. It will be a great opportunity to catch up. My first session with you will be on Tuesday at 2.15pm. Even though we have used teams a little bit, we are both understandably feeling a little anxious about it.
Please watch this video recapping how to interpret line graphs:
Have a look at the true and false question. Write your answer, explaining why you think the statement is true or false and then compare with the answers on the next slide. Complete the questions on the worksheet and then mark using the answer sheet. In our live sessions, we can look at any questions, which gave particular difficulty.
English (Extended Lesson)

Last term, we extensively explored figurative language: similes and metaphors including personification. Refresh your knowledge through reading the information on slide 1 and 2 through the above link.
Retrieve your artwork from yesterday and spend some time contemplating the magnificence of a sunrise but don’t yet write on the sheet.
- What powerful adjectives and verbs might you use to describe this?
- What could you compare the colours, the beauty or the movement with?
Write a paragraph describing the sunrise. Use a range of figurative language to help engage your reader. In addition, please use one semi-colon accurately and appropriately. Proofread and edit your draft carefully. In your neatest handwriting, publish your paragraph besides your picture of a sunrise.
Religious Education (RE)
In RE, we are going to be exploring the unit, ‘What would Jesus do?’ This explores how Christians live their individual lives and in community, based on Biblical ideas, teachings and a belief in Jesus as ‘good news’. In preparation for this, please read through the attached scenarios. Select between 2 and 4 scenarios. Then think of a character, real or fictional. This could be a You-Tuber, book character, ‘celebrity’ or public figure. Write the scenario in your book and underneath draw 3 columns with suitable sub-titles. Record how you think you, your chosen figure and Jesus would respond to the scenario.
