Last week you should have been able to log on to YUMU by Charanga (our at-home music provision) and should have started to learn the song Make You Feel My Love by Adele. Log on this week using the same details and have a go at the activities on Step 2. You'll be listening to the original version of the song this week, sung by Bob Dylan. He actually wrote and recorded the song in the first place and it was covered by Adele a few years later. What can you find out about Bob Dylan? Can you find out any more songs that he wrote and recorded? Ask your parents and grandparents, they're sure to have heard of him!



This week we'd like you to look at the passages in the Bible that tell the story of the Last Supper. Just like if you were to tell the story of something that happened to you, the versions written by Jesus' disciples were all slightly different. Read three of them and see what similarities and differences you can find. How do they describe the part when Jesus shares the bread and the wine? Link to The Last Supper Bible verses.


It was great to see so many of you on the previous PE session zoom. It is important that during lockdown we all stay as active as possible as it also helps to improve our general mood.

The next session is Friday 29th January. The details for the next PE zoom meeting have been emailed out to you. It would be great to see even more of you on this one.



We hope that you're all staying safe and well at home. It's great to see so many of you on our class Zooms, keep sending us pictures of your completed work and also keep us up to date of any achievements you're particularly proud of. Enjoy Drawing with Rob and counting the birds in this weekend's RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. We'll see you all soon. smiley
