St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School Love One Another


Wednesday 13th January

Good morning! We have reached the middle of the school week and I am so impressed with the way you are working. More of you are logging on to GETEPIC and I love seeing which books you are reading. Are you all enjoying Danny the Champion of the World? We are in school and have just finished chapter 3!


Please complete the 3 lessons below alongside your extra tasks of reading, exercising and TTRS.


You must send your work in through the blog or email.


LO – To plan a discussion text

Watch the video below which discusses why we need zoos.

Zoos: Helpful or Harmful?

Firstly, read the discussion text above about animals in zoos. When you have read it, answer the 10 ‘quick fire’ retrieval questions below. You are used to doing these in class and shouldn’t take you long as the answers are in the text. Just write the answer.


1. What is the title of the text?

2. What could happen to animals in the wild?

3. Explain what Twycross Zoo did.

4. Give 2 examples of things you cannot do when seeing animals on TV.

5. Complete the sentence below

Trapped in one cage can ____________ an animal.


6. Is Sea World in the news for positive or negative reasons?

7. Which animals did Sea World have to put down?

8. Who is David Attenborough?

9. True or false – Animals in zoos are taught to hunt.

10. Does the author agree or disagree with zoos?



Now I would like you to split your page in half. At the top of one half, write FOR and at the top of the other half, write AGAINST. You are going to write (in bullet points) some for and against points of keeping animals in zoos. Make sure you have plenty of points as you will be using your points in tomorrow’s English lesson

LO – To identify prime numbers.

Today we are going to look at prime numbers. Prime numbers are special numbers, greater than 1, that have exactly two factors, themselves and 1.


19 is a prime number. It can only be divided by 1 and 19.

9 is not a prime number. It can be divided by 3 as well as 1 and 9.

The prime numbers below 20 are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19.

Don't forget: the number 1 is not a prime number as it only has one factor.


Please watch the video below which will guide you through your learning. Pause the video when you need to answer a question.

Prime numbers

Now complete the worksheet below and mark it when you have finished. I have also set you 2 games on Education City (13/1/21 – Prime Numbers) as this worksheet shouldn’t take you too long.


LO – To explore pulse and rhythm

Today would have been your weekly music lesson if you were in school. In today’s music lesson, you are going to complete the lesson on Oak Academy. Follow the link below and complete the lesson. Some of you might be brave enough to send me a video of your performance!

Alternatively, have a look at the document below that tells you how you could have a go at making your own samba instrument at home.
