                                                                              Good Citizen Week


This week, Sussex Road is going to have a Good Citizen Week. We have seen so many acts of kindness during lockdown  in the news, on television and across social media.. Clapping for the NHS and carers, donating and fund raising are just some examples that come to mind. We are sure you can think of many more.





Your challenge is to show kindness each day, either to family members in your household or towards people in the wider community. We have included some ideas to get you started:  say hello to your neighbour, write a letter, make a drink for your family. However, kindness comes in many ways so please feel free to think of your own. Being kind is guaranteed to make you smile and will cheer everyone up. As a good citizen, just make sure you maintain a social distance of 2 metres.



Philosophical question:

Today's question: Is it ever all right to lie?



Word of the day: knack


  • Find out what it means and write the definition in your own words!   

  •  What is its word class?   

  • How many syllables does it have (clap each syllable to help you)? 

  •  Make a list of synonyms and antonyms   

  •  Can you use it in an interesting sentence?  

  • Are you able to use it, appropriately, when you are speaking or in any of your writing opportunities?





For a starter today, please do this activity to practise quick recall of your times tables.


Today we are going to use a variety of different Maths skills to solve some problems. The questions and answers are below in the documents. There are two levels, mild and hot. Try to solve a few problems today.



Writing your letter!  


Look at the checklist below for all the wonderful things you must include in your letter. Make sure when you are writing you are referring to the planning you have done leading up to today. Follow it, stick to it!  


Remember you also have access to a selection of word banks below! 



SPaG is after English today - use this time to proof read your letter. Can you spot any grammatical mistakes you may have made? 

Next, pick 2 or 3 sentences which you feel you could uplevel!  

Religious Education

Today, we are going to reflect on the different religious festivals we have been learning about this term: Ramadan, Diwali and Pesach (Passover). You may choose to complete all or some of the activities contained in the Lesson Plan below. The tasks will help you to compare and contrast the different festivals, think about the stories and values and identify any common themes between them.
