Afternoon Activities

Thursday 2nd April


Today you are going to complete your Easter story. Your first part is the 'build up', showing Mary's shock and worry of receiving the news. The second part is describing the two key events. Be sure to follow the success criteria and include some of the sentence types. 


Please share your examples with the Kensington twitter page using #year5homelearning

Wednesday 1st April


In our run up to Easter, we have set you the challenge of retelling the story, but from the point of view of Mary. Take a look at the link below to recap the story and look at the role that Mary played.


You have to try and write this in 1st person, telling the story as if you are Mary. The benfit of doing this is you can include a lot of emotion. The writing is going to be split over 2 days. Today you are going to write the story up to where Mary discovers that Jesus is being crucified. 

Use the guide and the sentence types to help.


We would love to see some of your sentences / paragraphs / readings on twitter to share your creativity. Give it a go!

Today, you are going to use your information of the Greek Gods you completed last week to create Top Trumps cards.  You must write 3-5 bullet point facts about the god or goddess on their Top Trump card.  Then, give them a score out of 100 in each category. You only have 300 points to use in total. Remember to write the name of the god/goddess and a drawing of what they look like. 

The link below will direct you to information about the gods/goddess that you can use to help you complete the task.


Share your top trump cards with your family at home, challenge them to play the game and see who wins! Good luck!
