Task:

RE – Task 2

To understand that people must be given the benefit of the doubt by not questioning their honesty without valid evidence

Read the story of Prophet Mohammad’s ﷺ visit to Utbah. Discuss the story with the children. –  \\Starb-vfile03\users\STAFF\Sima.Begum\RE\KS2_Y3_Unit_09_Su_Wk_02_of_03_R2_Resource_Prophet_Visit_Utban_v1.pdf

Key points: We must always give people benefit of the doubt and not jump to conclusions.

Consider:

‘Why is it that we might doubt the word of other people?’

Discuss the conclusions drawn.  Some points to consider…

Experience tells us that people lie to be praised and/or to have the good opinion of others

Experience tells us that people lie to avoid punishment and/or the bad opinion of others

We know that we are tempted to lie in order to receive praise or to avoid punishment.

We find it easy to ‘judge’ others perhaps because deep down we think we are better than other people

Some actions may be driven by a number of causes  (eg not arriving for an appointment could be due to forgetfulness, or to laziness, or to unexpected illness or accident) but we are by nature quick to draw conclusions –often wrong ones

We rarely remember to give others the benefit of the doubt which we would want others to give up

Thursday

English:

(2 Sessions)
Session 2

Create two more paragraphs, focussing on the next two subheadings:

  • The World’s Longest River
  • Rivers in the UK

Remember, there should be a topic sentence and your ideas should link – cohesion in key!

Start with a sentence to explain what the paragraph is about. Then give more detail about the topic, explaining in as much detail as you can. Use conjunctions like because, but, and, if, although, also, when, next. Finish your paragraph with a summary sentence.

Topic:

Firstly, update your water cycle diary.

Watch the following video clips about the stages and parts of a river again.

  2. Tributary
  3. Flood plain

Maths:

Measure objects around the house again and write the measurements down. Use what you have learnt about conversion to make them all the same unit – cm will probably be best!

Then choose measurements to add and subtract. Remember to put the large number on top when subtracting!

Always start from the ones – remember to add exchanged numbers, and when subtracting exchange from the next column if you cannot subtract!
