Friday 3rd April

Welcome to Friday... our last day of half term


 Today we all have the same tasks so all of our work is below...



Collective Worship... Good Friday is on our video page. Learning- St Paul's Video- Collective Worship Good Friday

Below I include the story of Good Friday / A Dreadful Day. I have included one simpler version for you to read and also a more detailed version which includes Jesus going before the high priests. Choose which you would like to read and then there is  a video clip from 'The Miracle Maker' DVD. 

My Senses Poem on Good Friday


 Today we will complete our next senses poem on what it would have been like to have been watching the events of 'Good Friday'. How would you have felt seeing this happen to Jesus? The poems I have seen so far have been amazing. Below you will find my example and scaffold. Print my scaffold out, type it onto my scaffold or write it into your green book.smiley


 Imagine what you would have seen, heard, smelt, tasted and touched had you been there. REMEMBER, you can use your description to be more symbolic and to show your understanding of the meaning behind the story. 

  • Year 1 concentrate on clearly written and punctuated sentences; do your best 'get ready line handwritng' and 
  • Year 2 be creative with your word choices; your adjectives help sheet may come in handy.

Completing our Triptychs


 Our next activity is to finish our triptychs. This will be the middle window which is for our Good Friday image. Don't worry that we haven't got a window for our Easter Sunday image; we will be creating a 'Resurrection Cross' after Easter. I would love to see your triptychs  when they are done. See my blog post from yesterday for my end of term raffle details. I will do the draw at 3.30 today and post the video so you know who has won!


Below are some images that might help you...


Making our Easter Card


Usually we would have made some Easter craft activities at school; maybe even chocolate nest cakes! Sadly, we haven't been able to do that so I am about to make a little video of an idea for a card you might like to make for 

your familiesYou will need;

  • Card or an A4 part of your cartridge paper (white or cream would be best)
  • Masking or decorating tape. Dads are good to ask for this! If not cellotape.
  • Your water colours
  • A little bit of salt
  • I will make my video now so it will be on here a little later!


Don't expect too great an example!!!smiley


Enjoy your day and watch out for my blog later on. I'll put the art video and raffle draw onto here. 


***The art Easter card videos are under learning - st paul's videos-Galileo. I think there will be 5 by the time I've finished. Let's hope that they are worth it!

Finished Easter card designs. I'm quite pleased with my work! 😂
