Morning Message 30.06.20

Let's start the day with a prayer.


The Lord's prayer, or Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  Amen.

Phonics and handwriting


Please aim for 30 minutes (15 each) of handwriting and phonics per day.


This week we are learning about contractions.


  • Contractions are a shorter way of saying two words. 
  • We take some letters out and replace them with an apostrophe. '

Take a look at your spelling words below. Can you spot what letters get replaced with an apostrophe?

For today's task can you match the contractions to the correct word pairs? The words in your task today are your spelling words.

We will continue with our learning about time today. Let's revise our understanding of o'clock and half past.


When the time is o'clock the long minute hand will point towards the 12 and the short hour hand will point towards the hour. Here we can see it is 2 o'clock.

When the time is half past the long minute hand will point towards the 6 and the short hour hand will point in between two hours. Here we can see it is half past 2.

For today's task can you write the time? Remember to use beautiful handwriting when writing either o'clock or half past.


Try the below time game.

Following on from last week, today we will be learning more about diversity.

Diversity means that there are lots of different kinds of people.



There are lots of differences between people e.g. the way we look, what we like/don’t like. It is important that we respect people for their differences. We should embrace our differences. If we were all the same the world would be a very boring place! 


In this lesson we will be understanding about a type of discrimination called racism.


Racism is saying or doing something to hurt someone who comes from a different culture.


Racism is wrong because we are all equal and should treat each other with love. Jesus loves everyone no matter what their skin colour is.

All are precious in his sight.


Today you will be reading through the slides learning about racism. Then you will cut out the paper people and connect them to create a chain of people. Next, colour the people in different skin tones to celebrate everyone's beautiful skin.

After that you will be learning all about a famous activist called Rosa Parks.


Rosa Parks was very brave because she stood up to racism because she knew that it was wrong. Answer the questions about Rosa Parks using golden sentences.
