Good Morning Primary 4. I hope you have had a nice and relaxing weekend. Remember it’s only a four day week this week because your Easter holidays begin on Friday 🙂 Let’s work as hard as we did last week. Remember to email me or post your work in the class drive on Google Classroom and send emails to me from your Glow address as other emails are being blocked and I’m not receiving them.
Have a good day.

Choose an activity from the grid to keep yourself active.
We would normally have ERIC Time on a Monday morning. So let’s take 15 minutes private reading time.
Discuss the 3 sharings (likes and dislikes, puzzles and connections) with someone at home. You don’t need to write these down.
L.I Use adjectives in my sentences.
Write 3, 4 or 5 sentences about your weekend. Make these sentences as interesting as possible by using adjectives to make them more descriptive. If you didn’t do much at the weekend, create your own sentences using your own ideas.
For spelling today, I want you to find out what your words mean. You can google them to find the definition. I want you use the swiggle search engine as it is child friendly.

Mental maths – Daily 10 from TopMarks. Choose subtraction today.
Last week only 5 of you took part in the SumDog challenge that I set. I’m looking for more of you to participate because it will help with your understanding of Tuesday’s maths task.
Your SumDog Challenge will focus on TIME.
Today we hear about an amazing thing that Jesus does for his friend Lazarus. Let’s think a bit more about this today.
Gospel: John 11:1-45 or John 11:3-7, 17, 20-27, 33-45. Below is the shortened version.
The sisters sent Jesus a message: “Lord, your dear friend is ill.”
When Jesus heard it, he said, “The final result of this illness will not be the death of Lazarus; this has happened in order to bring glory to God, and it will be the means by which the Son of God will receive glory.”
Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. Yet when he received the news that Lazarus was ill, he stayed where he was for two more days. Then he said to the disciples, “Let us go back to Judea.”
When Jesus arrived, he found that Lazarus had been buried four days before.
When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went out to meet him, but Mary stayed in the house. Martha said to Jesus, “If you had been here, Lord, my brother would not have died! But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask him for.”
“Your brother will rise to life,” Jesus told her.
“I know,” she replied, “that he will rise to life on the last day.”
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me will live, even though they die; and all those who live and believe in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
“Yes, Lord!” she answered. “I do believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.”
Jesus saw her weeping, and he saw how the people who were with her were weeping also; his heart was touched, and he was deeply moved. “Where have you buried him?” he asked them.
“Come and see, Lord,” they answered.
Jesus wept. “See how much he loved him!” the people said.
But some of them said, “He gave sight to the blind man, didn’t he? Could he not have kept Lazarus from dying?”
Deeply moved once more, Jesus went to the tomb, which was a cave with a stone placed at the entrance. “Take the stone away!” Jesus ordered.
Martha, the dead man’s sister, answered, “There will be a bad smell, Lord. He has been buried four days!”
Jesus said to her, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believed?” They took the stone away. Jesus looked up and said, “I thank you, Father, that you listen to me. I know that you always listen to me, but I say this for the sake of the people here, so that they will believe that you sent me.” After he had said this, he called out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” He came out, his hands and feet wrapped in grave clothes, and with a cloth round his face. “Untie him,” Jesus told them, “and let him go.”
Many of the people who had come to visit Mary saw what Jesus did, and they believed in him.
How do you think Mary, Martha and the other people there feel when they see Lazarus walking out of the tomb?
Why do you think Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead?
