During this morning's Reflection we will watch this video clip:
'I'm Here' By Peter H Reynolds
Let us ask God to impart his Wisdom in us, so that we might understand the needs of others and know how we can help and support one another.
Lessons this week are from Spring term Week 4 - Number: Fractions.
Watch the video for 'Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers' and then answer the questions. If you don't print out the question sheet to write on and instead you write your answers in your Remote Learning book that's fine, when you write your answers it may also be useful to draw some pictures too for example -
SPAG - Using Dashes to Indicate Parenthesis
Still learning about Parenthesis - today's lesson focuses on using dashes to indicate parenthesis. Do you remember that there are 3 ways to indicate parenthesis - dashes, brackets and commas.
I have included below the PowerPoint for you to look through (I have also saved this as a PDF if anyone can't open the PowerPoint on their device) and then there are the questions for you to answer followed by the answers for you to mark your work afterwards. Remember to choose either 'a' or 'b' questions on the question sheet.
The Sun, the Moon and the Earth
Understanding Movements of the Earth and Moon
So how do the Earth and Moon move and what affect does their movement have? And what about the sun? Does the sun move? Or do objects in space (including planets and moons) move around the sun?
Today you will learn the answers to these questions!
Hopefully you will be able to describe the movement of the Earth relative to the sun and also the movement of the moon relative to the Earth.
The Earth and Sun - The Earth orbits the sun once in a year - 365 days.
The Earth spins on its own axis - it does one complete spin every day - 24 hours, this is what gives day and night. When the earth's axis points towards the sun, it is summer for that hemisphere. When the earth's axis points away, winter can be expected.
The Moon - The moon orbits the Earth once each month - it takes about 28 days.

Fancy checking what you remember now with a quiz?
Click on the link below for an Earth, Sun and Moon Quiz!
Now for an activity!
Below you will find a Moon Facts Sorting Activity
Look at the statements about the Moon - which are right and which are wrong? (True/False) Sort the statements either by printing the sheet and cutting and sticking the statements into the correct columns or by drawing the table in your Remote Learning book and copying the statements into the correct column.
You can then check whether you sorted the statements correctly using the answers at the bottom of the sheet.
Sun, Earth and Moon Craft Activity
Instruction video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQFUtbSBYaE
With this simple craft you can make a model of the Sun, Earth and Moon and it will help to remind you how the Earth orbits the Sun and how the Moon orbits the Earth.
It's simple to make and all you need is some white paper or card, a pencil, some colouring pens or pencils and two split pins (if you don't have split pins you could use blutak).
