Week 1 – Home Learning (23/3/2020 – 27/3/2020)

Please complete these activities throughout the week in whichever way best suits you. You could complete these during normal school hours (9am – 3pm) but again, whatever is best for you and your family.

All activities should be completed online, except for where I have stated otherwise in this post.

Please keep checking Purple Mash 2email for any important updates and only email if there are any urgent problems. I will endeavour to reply as soon as I possibly can.

Remember, the most important things are for you to be kind, be helpful, be respectful and take care of yourselves and others – and don’t forget to have some fun too!

Our current topic in Science is ‘Animals Including Humans’. So far, we have covered all of our learning about humans and were beginning to look at animals.

Our unit of work in R.E currently is ‘Salvation’ and learning about how Jesus rescued people.

Watch the following video about The Bible Story of Zacchaeus.


Draw Zacchaeus in your Home Learning Book. Write on your drawing what Zacchaeus’ life was like after meeting Jesus (for example, free, forgiven etc…)  using ‘happy colours’.

Then write what life was like before meeting Jesus (for example, lonely etc…) using ‘sad colours’. Discuss how Jesus rescued Zacchaeus and why this is an important story for Christians.
