It’s Friday again! I can’t believe another week has passed. Thank you for those of you who are continuing to work hard and send me your work. I love seeing it and it’s great to see you continuing to work hard despite being at home.
Here is your work for today:
LO – To answer questions on a given text
Another reading lesson today with a History theme! Please read the text below called ‘Escaping the Workhouse’ and then answer the 10 questions. Mark your work when you have finished and let me know how you did.
Guess what day it is today? Yes, that’s right, its arithmetic day!
LO – To develop an understanding of the Beatitudes
Matthew’s Gospel collects Jesus’ teaching together in what is called the Sermon on the Mount. Matthew’s Jewish readers would remember how Moses brought God’s law (rules) to the people. Matthew wants his readers to recognise Jesus as the new Moses, calling people to a new way of living. (Jesus went up the mountain and sat town and taught the people.)
The Beatitudes are eight blessings recounted by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. Read the information on the PowerPoint below.
Now answer the following questions:
Then I want you to take each Beatitude and write a modern translation which explains what it means. Then draw a symbol that represents that Beatitude. I have attached a worksheet below if you want to type into it and sent it to me. If you don’t have a laptop to work on, write it out in your book.
