Which organisms lived during each era of time?

In this lesson, we will learn what the fossil record has taught us about the history of organisms that have existed on our planet. We will learn what a geologist is and what they can tell us about the organisms that have lived during each geological era of time. For this lesson you will need a piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler.



Do you want to be a hero?

In today’s lesson, we will be looking at some of the heroes in the NHS who have worked tirelessly to protect us.

As Deputy Prime Minister, you must convince children across the country to use school to develop the skills needed to succeed in working for the NHS.

How to say the date in Spanish

We can then use this, as well as our previous knowledge of months and numbers, to say the date in Spanish!

Collective Worship about Black Lives Matter


It is still a very important activity to continue practising Collective Worship or a time of reflection whilst some of us are at school and some of us are away from school.


Our simple acronym for prayer or reflection time will help you to think about or hope for the many different people and places that are affected by what is happening in the world. We should even think about how everything is affecting ourselves and our families too.


The acronym is based on our JC PROMISES, with each letter encouraging you to reflect or pray about something different. Our first theme was the present coronavirus pandemic we are all experiencing, and that theme for thought is still there and relevant. But, the new acronym theme for thought is all about the Black Lives Matter movement. 


Over the coming weeks, accompanying the JC PROMISES acronym, are a set of photos. Some of the pictures and the stories on the news are quite hard to think about. The following famous quote will help you to look at what you see on the news or on social media differently and more positively. Use it for our new images too.


“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news. My mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

WC - 22nd June 2020

Use our JC PROMISES acronym or our photograph or both together to help you to reflect or pray about the theme of Black Lives Matter. I have included a short introduction to each new word, to help you to understand what each word might mean in the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as being able to use it correctly in your thoughts, reflections and prayers.

Pause in Purpose? 

 These are there to help you consider what it is you might reflect, pray and think about.


There are a lot of letters and photographs to get through at once, so we are going to take one letter from the acronym and a photograph at a time. A different letter and photograph will be added every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the remainder of our Summer term at school. This gap in days will hopefully encourage you to think about what is there more deeply and in different ways.


A word for Tuesday 23rd June 2020

J is for Justice.

If people are accused of doing something wrong, they have the right to be treated fairly. This way their behaviour can be investigated correctly to find out if they are guilty or not. Justice is an important ingredient for our communities to work properly. Black people haven’t always been treated fairly and justice means that they have the right to live safely in our communities, just like everyone else. 

Pause in Purpose for Justice

Can you reflect on how good a friend you can be in your community today?
