Maths - we are learning about subtraction with borrowing from the next column, here is a video to help you with it https://vimeo.com/461795311 

ICT - log onto purple mash and complete a coding activity that has been set (if you have completed all of them let me know and I will set another). 

RE - today we are going to think about what God is like for Christians. God can be many things to many different people. Here is a list of  Biblical ideas which compare God with things we know and understand:
a father, a mother, a rock, a tree, a light, a puzzle, a bridge, a deep sea, a sunrise, the sky, the stars, a maker, a baby, a circle, the wind, a flaming fire, someone to hold your hand, a feeling of a warm heart, a doctor, a golden ring, a rescuer (e.g. a lifeboat worker), a cleaner, a dove

What is God like to you? Choose 6 things that you think God is like and create a miniature poem with these. For example:
God is like a father because He looks after us and does the best for us. 

God is like the stars because He is always looking down on us and shining the way for us.
