St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Friday 3rd July

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.

Arithmetic test

Guess what day it is today? Yes, that’s right, its arithmetic day! Read the questions carefully and take your time answering the questions.

Mark it when you have finished and send me your score through the blog or email. 

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:


  1. Which Beatitude do you like best and why?
  2. In what way are the Beatitudes different from the Ten Commandments?
  3. How does Jesus want us to live? 
  4. How will we be rewarded for living in this way? 


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.
