Dear Year 4!

We hope you have had a lovely weekend, even though the weather wasn’t very gracious to us!

This week, we are moving on to a new English unit, which will include looking at Zoos around the world and it will ask you to form an opinion for or against Zoos. You will also have a chance to look at activities supporting your mental well being. The themes are: give, get active, connect,take notice and keep learning. Just like last week, we would like you to choose one activity each afternoon to complete.

Please keep in touch and send us photos of your work or things that you have been up to. It was lovely seeing some of these last week! We will put them on for you in this week’s Celebration blog, so keep an eye out!

Morning Prayer
A Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus

Almighty and All–loving God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
we pray to you through Christ the Healer
for those who suffer from the Coronavirus Covid–19
in Great Britain and across the world.

We pray too for all who reach out to those who mourn the loss
of each and every person who has died as a result of contracting the disease.

Give wisdom to policymakers,
skill to healthcare professionals and researchers,
comfort to everyone in distress
and a sense of calm to us all in these days of uncertainty and distress.

This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord
who showed compassion to the outcast,
acceptance to the rejected
and love to those to whom no love was shown.
