Welcome to Wednesday's home learning page!

Writing: Survival Guide to Lockdown


Hopefully you have brainstormed ideas yesterday to support you in your writing to survive lockdown.


Today, you are going to add more detail to these ideas and to write your introduction.


Before you do this, it is very important that you think about your audience - as this will determine the voice that you are going to use. If you are writing to someone your own age, it would be very different to writing to an adult. The formality and style will change depending upon who you are writing for.


1. Spend about twenty minutes filling out details and phrases you may wish to include in your writing.


2. Begin to write the introduction. Remember to start with a memorable opening. It could be a powerful word or phrase - perhaps use of repetition or imagery. Whatever you use, you may wish to come back to it when you write your conclusion some point next week.


3. Read through it repeatedly. Edit - do not be content with your first ideas or draft!


4. Spend about twenty five minutes over this - including editing.


Remember, we are here to support you in your ideas and writing.

RE – Lent / Easter

Respond to the scripture from this unit of work on Lent / Easter. It’s time for your favourite arty RE! Draw an image to show your understanding of one of the pieces of scripture below.


Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.  All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:35 37-51)


Jesus said, “I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” (John 12: 24-25)


Repent and believe in the gospel Ash Wednesday Liturgy


As some of the scripture is rather long you may want to select a key phrase from it and just use that.

For example:

  • This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.” (John 6:35)

Remember that the scripture should be large enough to be the main part of the response and you need to include the Bible reference.


Please send me a picture of your work. You know I love seeing these!
