Monday 18th May


'The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.'

Oliver Wendall Holmes

Good morning children!

Today is Monday 18th May.

Welcome to a new week of learning.

I hope you are all safe and well at home.

Thank you for all the lovely work sent in over the weekend.

I will be sure to upload all the beautiful photos to the gallery folder

so you can have a look.


Please join in with the weekly school liturgy at some point today.

The link is below. 


You have three tasks to complete today.

One maths, one English and one RE task.


In maths, Year 3 are ordering and comparing 3- digit numbers.

Please read through the document attached for more details.


In English please learn the new spelling lists then complete

10 sentences into your exercise book.

Year 3 please complete your spelling test from last week today,

if you haven't done so already. 


Today, in RE you will be learning about Pentecost. 

Pentecost is a festival when Christians celebrate

the gift of the Holy Spirit. 

It is celebrated on the Sunday 50 days after Easter.

This year, Pentecost takes place on

Sunday 31st May (during half-term).

For today's task you will make your own

Pentecost book.


That's all from me today!

Have a great day!

PS... Try and get outside for some fresh air at some point today

and enjoy the nice weather.

English- please practise your spellings and complete 10 sentences in your exercise book.

RE task: The Church celebrates Pentecost.

Read and discuss Church’s Story 3 page 113 (image attached below).  The Church itself is part of the Pentecost story.  Each year, Christians remember and celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit, the new energy, the new power that he gives to the friends of Jesus.


The priest wears red vestments to symbolise fire and energy.



  1. In the reading, what were the Jewish people celebrating at Pentecost?
  2. What was the promise Jesus made?
  3. Why is Pentecost known as ‘the birthday of the Church’?
  4. Why does the priest wear red vestments at Pentecost?                                                     (Answer orally)


Create your own Pentecost book like the one shown below. If you don't have any red card at home please use whatever colour you have. Begin by designing the front cover. Use signs and symbols of the coming of the Holy Spirit within your book. Record the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the 'Come Holy Spirit' prayer. I look forward to seeing your beautiful work.
