Good Morning Year Five!

I hope you had a brilliant weekend. 

This Monday morning we are making a start with a piece of music by a man named Beethoven. He composed 'Für Elise' in 1810, which was 210 years ago. It is incredibly recognisable, I wonder if you've heard it before? Have a listen below.

Today we are beginning a week of decimal learning, as we didn't quite finish the topic last term. 


Today we are recapping adding and subtracting decimals. 


This is making sure we line up the lot so all the numbers are in the right place: 


Adding and subtracting decimals


As you can see- it could go very wrong if you don't line the numbers up accurately when adding or subtracting with decimals. 


Have a look at the video to help give you a way to remember to always check this!



So today's work is a range of questions from Good to Awesome, which look at adding and subtracting decimals so read them carefully! Try and start with Good and make your way through them all. Answers will be uploaded this afternoon. 


There is a Black Cat Emoji Challenge underneath also (which includes answers). 


Today, our lesson is all about the power of the Holy Spirit and how the power of it can help us to make big changes to our lives. 


First of all have a look though this information, either as a powerpoint or a PDF. 


It talks about the day when the Holy Spirit came to the Disciples, and the message that Peter then passed on. 

Now you have thought a little about what the message of the Holy Spirit is, we are going to think about the changes we can make within ourselves for the better. 

This is all about a man called Saul of Tarsus. 

He was not very nice and would persecute people who were Christians. 


Persecute means to subject (someone) to hostility and ill-treatment, especially because of their race or political or religious beliefs.


Watch the video below to see the story of Saul:

Here are some questions to think about:

  • What do you think about Saul’s story? Does anything surprise you?
  • How do you think Saul felt when Jesus asked him ‘why do you persecute me’?
  • Why did Ananias ask Saul to become baptised?
  • How was Saul transformed by the Holy Spirit?


Now, you have a choice of activity linked to the story of Saul. 

1) write a letter as Saul, explaining the change that happened to you and why, thinking about the changes that Saul went through. 

2) Is to use the sheet below, and answer the questions about Saul's transformation.
