enlightenedGood Morning Diamond Class!enlightened

I hope you have all had a great weekend and are ready for Week 4 of home learning! 

This week we are going to be working on division in maths and writing the story of The First Hippo on the Moon in English. Have a fantastic week and keep up the good work! laugh



Each week it would be useful to continue to complete a spelling test with your child. Choosing a spelling test day might be a useful routine to get into. As you know, in school we complete them on a Monday and practise each unit for 2 weeks before moving on. Please let me know of any successes/issues with spellings! 

(If you need to find spelling logs in the future, they are located under the homework icon on the main Class 2 page)



Lesson Objective: I can share objects into equal groups (division)

Can you remember what this sign means?



It is the division sign which means 'divided by', 'shared between' or 'in groups of'

  • For our first lesson on division we are going to ensure we understand the link between division and grouping equally.
  • Using practical equipment you have at home will help this week. You can use things like Lego or pasta to help with sharing and grouping. You will need some for today's lesson too.

Extras- (Verbal) Can you say if the objects are shared into equal groups? Remember the groups don't have to look the same but they have to have the same amount in each!



Lesson Objective: I can create a story plan of The First Hippo on the Moon.

RE - Christianity



Lesson Objective: I can create my own symbol to represent the important things in my life including people, pets, hobbies or faith.

Last week, Mrs Hill asked you to draw the important parts of a church and label them. This week we are going to look at the importance of Christian symbols and what they represent.


What are the Christian symbols?

The cross is the main symbol. It reminds Christians that Jesus died on the cross to save them.

The dove is the symbol of the holy spirit and peace.

The fish symbol was created using the Greek letters which spell out ICHTHUS : Jesus Christ God's Son Saviour.

Christians devised a secret code. They drew half a fish in the sand. If a person completed the fish, they knew he or she was a believer too. 



These letters stood for: Jesus Christ God's Son Saviour


Look at the slides below to see some important Christian symbols and what they represent. Now please complete the task.
