L.O. To listen to and respond to a text

This term, we will read the Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham. Listen to chapter 1 from the link below. As you listen, you can pause the story to complete these 2 tasks:

First, write down any words that you don't know the meaning of. Have a guess at what they mean, and then find out the real meaning. If you have a dictionary at home, you can use that. If not, use the online dictionary from the Collins online dictionary by following the link below. 

Secondly, create a mindmap like the one in the picture below. In the circles around the edge, add in as many different things that you could find around a river bank (the title of chapter 1!)

L.O. To understand the Great Commandment


Work through the powerpoint below to create a cover sheet for our new topic and also think about how we use the Great Commandment.

If you like, you can watch the short YouTube video which shows what it may have been like when Jesus as teaching. 

If you have a printer, you can print out the sheets. Otherwise, you can create your own.
