Hello Year 3! I hope you all enjoyed a well-deserved week off from home learning and enjoyed the glorious sunshine. Thank you to those of you that sent through your home learning before half term. I hope you enjoyed the PSHE focus week on kindness. So many of you did lots of kind acts for your family and yourselves during this week. Shout out to Luca who baked cakes and then cycled 14km to drop them off at his Great Grandparents house. Also to Seb, Joseph, Shevaun,  Ross and Miles who made beautiful positivity jars and filled them with lots of positive thoughts. Thomas really thought about the message of being kind last week. He shared lots of different things he did throughout the week to help out at home and spreads kindness. Shout out to Scarlett  who checked in on how I was feeling during PSHE week. What a thoughtful gesture!

I also enjoyed seeing other things that you have been getting up to. Shout out to Charlie who has now broken his keepie uppie record of 288 non stop. Shout out to Imogen who sent me a picture of a fairy garden that she has made. She planted all the plants herself. What a lovely idea! Also shout out to Natalia for sending through her journal that she has been writing each down. I really enjoyed reading it and the illustrations were brilliant! It made me chuckle. Huge shout out to Raphael for achieving a silver award on Mathletics before half term. That takes real effort and determination.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Fingers crossed the sunshine sticks around too. Keep checking our shout out page. I keep updating it.

During May why not try some of the following activities:

  • arrange fresh flowers on your prayer table at home
  • draw an arrangement of colourful flowers and put them on your bedside table

  3. Reflect on times when you have needed the Holy Spirit.
    • Write or talk about how the Holy Spirit was alive in you in your actions. You can include bible quotes to support this.
    • In what way did the Holy Spirit help you to follow Jesus’ path?

I hope that you are all enjoying the sunshine in your gardens and are noticing how the plants and shrubs are changing. Now is the perfect time to plant your own flowers or vegetables. I’ve planted some tomato seeds, rocket, cress, spinach and I have some carrots growing too. If you have some seeds I would like you to plant some and notice how they change and grow. Maybe you could plant sunflower seeds or runner beans. The choice is yours. Think about what plants need to grow and be healthy. You can measure your plant weekly and record this. I’ve attached a plant/bean diary for you to record any changes, measure it and draw it too. Alternatively, you could make your own.
