Good morning Year 3

I can see you are working super hard again this week, thank you. Don’t forget our Google Meet at 10.30 today. This will be a quick catch up for now but will be a lovely opportunity to see you all again.

Today I would like you to do some English, Maths, RE and PE. Please send in all of your work as normal, I will be giving feedback on the RE task.


I would like you to leave the BFG, just for today, we are going to focus on compound sentences. This is something we have covered in class so hopefully you will remember the difference between simple and compound. We will use this skill tomorrow when we carry on writing our story opening.

You have two tasks for English today, first watch the video and complete the activities. Next, please use the worksheet and identify the compound sentences.

130121 Compound Sentences


Today, we are going to start using the column method for addition and subtraction. Please make sure you take care when laying out your columns and you remember your place value. This will really help you to get to the correct answer.

Watch the video then complete the worksheet.

I have also attached the answer sheet so you can check your answers when you finish. If you have made any mistakes, try to work back through the question to understand where you made a mistake.

Look at the diagram of the Liturgical Year (Shown below).  The year of the Church family is marked by special events and seasons.  It is called the Liturgical Year.  It begins with the first Sunday of Advent and ends with the feast of Christ the King.  The word liturgical means the Church family’s celebration and remembrance of the journey of Jesus when he lived on earth, his death and Resurrection.  It is a calendar of Sundays, feast days and special seasons, which are celebrated during one year.  A feast day is a day set aside by the Church family to celebrate an event in the life of Jesus, Mary his mother or a saint.

Liturgy is the actions and words of the prayer and worship the Church family offers to God.

The Liturgical Year helps Christians to be close to the work of the Trinity, God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, throughout the seasons of the year.  It brings the Church family together as everyone shares in the celebrations.  Following the celebrations, Christians are sent out to love and serve God in the world.

Task 1: Once you have read the information above, answer the following questions:

  • How is the Church’s year marked?
  • When does it begin and end? Why do you think it happens like this?
  • What do you notice about the colour used at different times?

Task 2: Design a Liturgical calendar (see below for template) that accurately represents the Church’s year using signs, symbols and colours to denote the different seasons and feasts.

For your PE activity today I would like you to complete a Joe Wicks workout. You can either use the workout from Monday or a new one will be live at 9am this morning if you have already completed this one.

When you have finished this, I have a little sock challenge for you. For this you will need four (clean) socks, let me know your time when you have completed it!

Excellent work again today Year 3. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
