Week Beginning 14th February 2022

Hi Year 3,


Here is your remote learning for this week if you are isolating - remember, you don't have to complete any work at home if you feel poorly! Make sure your grown ups let the school office know if you are isolating. Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail as soon as possible to check you are all ok, and to help you with your remote learning if needs be.


Some of this week’s lessons have worksheets. If you can print them out that’s great but please don’t worry if you can’t - you can complete the work on paper or a blank BGfL document.




Narrative writing: Please follow this link for some narrative writing lessons. You can complete one lesson per day (If you have already done some because you were isolating last week, please just continue from where you got to): You can do this instead of the Myths and Legends quick writing tasks, or as well as if you wish, but you don’t have to do it all.


Quick writing: Please scroll down to the ‘Myths and Legends quick write’ document below. Choose one or two sheets to complete per day. Allow the awesome pictures to really spark your imagination! You can do this instead of the narrative writing tasks above, or as well as if you wish, but you don’t have to do it all. If you were isolating last week and have already completed some, just have a go at some of the others, or focus on the narrative writing/reading tasks this week.


Reading: Complete the comprehension below (scroll down) based on Theseus and the minotaur. (There are 3 in the document – choose the one that you feel is at the level most suitable for you. If you were isolating last week you may have already done this – there is no need to do it again!)




Your class are learning about multiplication and division this week. Have a go one lesson per day from this series. There are lots of lessons here- you don’t need to complete them all, and if you were isolating last week and have already completed some, you can just pick up from where you left off. All the tasks are on the videos this week, so there are no worksheets attached. You can just write your answers on paper or on a blank BGfL document:

If you require any more maths learning, here is some revision of concepts you have been learning throughout the year. Please follow the link and complete one lesson per day. (Again, if you started isolating last week and have already completed some of these revision lessons, please just carry on from where you got to.)

PSHE, Art, SPaG and Topic

Please choose 1 lesson per day from this section


Children’s Mental Health Week 2022:

We are celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week at the moment! This year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’. Mental Health is SO important. We are lucky at St Johns that we spend a lot of time learning about our emotions and self-regulation.

Lesson 1:

Here is a video introduction to Children’s Mental Health Week:

Can you make a poster advertising Children’s Mental Health Week? Imagine you have a friend who hasn’t heard of it. What would you include on the poster to get them excited about it?

Lesson 2:

Growth Stories

Human beings change and grow – we do it all the time and in many ways. Emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’. At these times, we are reminded of how much we need others in our lives to help us to keep growing.   

Here are some videos of some grown ups you might recognise talking about growth and the challenges they have faced and overcome. Watch the videos (you can choose 2 or 3 if you like) and think about what is said. If a grown up at home feels well enough, you might like to watch them together and talk about them.


Here is a little picture to remind you of the work you will have been doing in school based around ‘Zones of Regulation’. It may help you if you deal with any big emotions you may experience while you are off school poorly. Remember – it’s ok to not be ok! The self regulation tools you have learned at school will help, and it’s ALWAYS worth talking to a trusted adult about how you are feeling.


Art, Topic and SPaG


Can you draw your very own Minotaur? On the drawing of the Minotaur, draw lines coming out of parts of the body of the creature. Then write a list of 4 adjectives (describing words) to describe each part: Here are some examples: Eyes (dark, creepy, beady, evil) Ears (deadly, curved, rough, frightening) Legs (hairy, powerful, enormous, thundering) Tail Claws (razor sharp)

Here is an example to help you


Extra Topic/SPaG

Your class has been learning about adverbs. There is a recap about them here:


Adverbs and adverbial phrases


Can you think of some adverbs that end in -ly?


If we want to be stylish writers we can use tricks and interesting types of sentences e.g. double – ly ending sentences.


Here is an example: Bravely and tentatively, Theseus withdrew his sword so he could kill the fierce.


Can you think of any more?



Remember, there are lots more great remote learning resources on the school website here:
