Week beginning 10th January


Read and enjoy Michael Rosen's poem - Where Broccoli Comes From. 


Have a think about some ideas for writing your own poem in this style - you could choose a different vegetable/food, where it grows, how it is harvested etc. 


You could start writing, but we will be spreading this across today and tomorrow. 

Your new spellings will be on Spelling Shed. 


There are some homeworks set on My Maths for you to have go at. You can also practise your tables on TT Rockstars. 


Watch the video and have a go at the quiz on this link: 



Have a go at writing your own poem, using Where Broccoli Comes From as your structure. Think about where you can add more language and make the poem better - e.g. with your adjectives - Michael Rosen uses "big" five times - is that an accurate adjective or can you think of something better? 


Mr Bond had a go at the beginning of his, to give you an idea.

Today we are thinking about the first disciples of Jesus. Watch the video here to see how Jesus showed his power to his first disciples. 


Below is the verse from the bible where Jesus meets his first disciples. 

Jesus Calls His First Disciples

18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.

21 Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.


To be a disciple of Jesus they had to give up all their possessions and follow him and trust him. 


What do you think Peter and Andrew had to give up? Can you make a list of the things they would have left behind. 

What do you think they were thinking when they were asked to give up all their possessions?
