I hope you have been enjoying your week so far.
We will be contacting all families this week and next, just to say hello and see if there is anything we can do to support you at this time. I have started putting examples of learning on the class blogs, so please do send in some
examples to be included.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Below are some learning activities for today.

Learning Objective/Focus: Explain beliefs and values which I apply to my life
Main input: Recap your learning on the Ten Commandments. If available access the following link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z687tfr
The clip focuses on the Ten Commandments and explains why these are found within both the Bible and the Jewish Torah. For the Jews, the Torah sets out the laws, or rules, of how God wants them to live. The Ten Commandments are a fundamental set of rules. The clip starts with scenes in the synagogue, and each of the commandments is presented in a lively fashion by children on a football field.
Activities: MUST – Write five rules that you feel are important for you to live by.
SHOULD – Write the Ten Commandments and explain what each one means and how it relates to you.
COULD – Discuss which commandments you feel are most sacred and justify your choices by giving reasons.

I can’t wait to see some of your learning!
