SUMMER READING CHALLENGE
Read (at least) six books during the summer holidays and fill in the record sheet. Don't forget to bring it back in September to claim your reward. Have fun!
Faith at Home: PATIENCE
Patience is one of those qualities that we all need to develop especially when times are tough, when people and governments are frustrating. Patience to wait for the right time, patience with each other and the patience to wait on God when things seem to be taking so long to sort themselves out. The Bible is filled with stories of people like Mary, David, Moses and Noah who had to wait for the right time, for God’s time.
‘…clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience’ (Colossians 3:1)
Use this resource to watch the videos and talk about the pictures with your family. There are also short worship activities to do at home.
Dear parents, carers and Year 3 pupils,
Thank you for all your wonderful stories about Perseus and Medusa. You've worked very hard at home.
I have updated the English and Maths activities on the website for the last time this term. Please continue to practise spellings and times tables over the summer holidays. It is also important to keep reading a variety of books ready for September.
Church of England has produced short Faith at Home activities that support the Christian values of our school. This week we are focusing on PATIENCE.
Make sure your child has completed the Class Awards voting form and emailed it to me.
Again, if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay safe and look after each other.
Lots of love,
This week I would like you all to start with listening to the story 'Perseus and Medusa'. (See the link below.) After you have watched it, draw and label the characters.
The next day read the story and answer the comprehension questions.
The following day watch the clip and complete the story mountain.
The day after that I would like you to retell the story. Remember to use your best handwriting and punctuation (capital letters, full stops, question/exclamation marks, speech marks, commas). Make sure you use interesting vocabulary and conjunctions (and, but, so, because, although, even though etc.).
After you have finished your story, ask an adult to take a picture (or scan it) and send it to me so I can have a look at your writing.

Please watch the video and answer the questions about the Good Samaritan. Then investigate the Lord's Prayer (you could make a beautiful Lord's Prayer poster too) and answer the questions on the sheet.
