Year 3 Home Learning – Thursday 7th January

Good morning Year 3.

Due to the problems with the website yesterday, you will be receiving two pieces of work today. This means you can complete all of yesterday’s tasks and then work on todays. Don’t forget to email your completed work to me (when you have finished it all) by 8pm tonight so I can give you your feedback tomorrow.

Today you will carry on with English from yesterday and complete an RE task to begin our new topic of Journeys.


You will carry on using the BFG for your English today. In this lesson, we will recap what a verb is, define a simple sentence and write our very own simple sentences. Use the video below, remember to pause when asked to so you are able to complete the tasks.

When you have completed the video, please make 5 of your own simple sentences. Remember to make sure your sentence makes sense on its own, you have no joining words and you have remembered your capital letters and full stops.


We are beginning our new RE topic today. Throughout this topic, you will learn about the Christian family’s journey with Jesus. To begin, you will look at special events in your own life and then begin to delve further into important events in the Church’s calendar.

Today I would like you to think about the celebrations during the Christmas holiday.  What events marked this time?  What special ways does your family have for celebrating Christmas and the New Year? Think about the whole year, the school terms and the events at school and in the family.  Also think about Bank Holidays (holidays for all), family birthdays, family holidays, seasons and special days e.g. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Bonfire Night and how these are usually celebrated. (Although I realise this year has been different to normal.)

Task 1: Answer the questions below, please make sure you write in full sentences.

  1. What makes the journey through the year good?
  2. What makes the journey through a year difficult? (How this year has been more difficult because of lockdown etc.)
  3. If you were going on an actual journey, who would you like as a companion?
  4. How would you travel?
  5. What would you take with you?
  6. What would be your reasons for these choices?

Task 2: Paint the year, using different colours for the seasons, which reflect the mood of that season.  If you do not have paint, use coloured pencils, pens or crayons.


If you finish all of your work, you can burn off some of your energy through the fitness workout shown in the video below.


Don’t forget you have access to all of the following extra activities. If you need your password, please let me know and I will find them for you.

Mrs Bishop.
