Landmark 1:

Camp 1, 
6100 m - 6400 m 

  • •This is a vast, flat area of endless snow, deep crevasses and mountain walls 
  • At night there are deep murmuring cracking sounds under our tents.
  • It is the crevasses opening and closing deep down in the glacier beneath.
  • Pounding headaches torture you.
  • You can see Everest for the first time
(Climb time: 4-7 hours not acclimatized)

  • This place is absolutely stunning.
  • Clouds roll in from the lower ranges of the Himalayas

Use these facts and the PowerPoint to help you write your next two paragraphs.


RE  (Zoom at 1:30pm)

Jesus understands how people often find it difficult to love as they should.
In Matthew’s gospel, Jesus explains how God loves us and gives advice on how we can love more.

Now think about these questions: 
  • How do you think giving and receiving (taking) could get out of balance?
  • Why is a Mass an occasion to help you think about your daily life?
  • What phrase did you like best in the Gospel and why?
  • What do you find hard in the advice offered and why?
  • What do you think is the most important piece of advice in this text?

Main task:

You have two tasks to complete today:

  • The reading tells you something of what God’s love is like. Choose 2 or 3 lines from this and describe how you would apply them in your daily life and say why.
  • Design a ‘charter to live by’ based on the Scripture passage (Matthew 5: 45-58), making links between the Scripture and how Christians might lead their  lives
