Week Beginning 24th January 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.



Please follow the link for some grammar 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):



This week you will be revising some concepts you have been learning throughout the year. Please follow the link and complete one lesson per day. There are lots of lessons here- you don’t need to complete them all. 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 started isolating last week and have already completed some of these lessons, please just carry on from where you got to.**


Topic and RE

Please complete 1 lesson from this section per day 


Gods and Heroes - Ancient Greece


  1. LO: What were the great achievements of the Ancient Greeks?

In this lesson, we will review why the Ancient Greeks were so influential, analysing their great achievements and how these are influential to this day.


2. LO: To present factual information in an interesting and eye-catching way.

Over the last few weeks you have researched and learnt a lot about Ancient Greece!   Go back through your notes and work to refresh your memory. Then create a poster all about Ancient Greece. There are some pictures here that you can use to help you. Remember it needs to be eye-catching. That means you need to use lots of colour, different fonts (types of writing styles) and pictures. You need a main title “Ancient Greece” and subheadings to organise your information. It has to have lots of facts, so show off everything you have learnt!

Here are some examples but you can do better!

Ancient Greek writing: Use this guide to write your name in Greek! There are only 24 letters in the Greek alphabet so you have to think about the sounds in your name


  1. Dance – Greek Dancing

LO: To use skills in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement.

LO: They should enjoy communicating, collaborating.

LO: To perform dances using a range of movement patterns.

Watch this video of a traditional Greek group dance until 3m 20s.

Then think about these questions:

Which Greek piece of architecture (building) are they using to inspire their dance?

  • Why are they standing in rows? What are they trying to recreate?
  • Why are the dancers wearing blue and white?
  • What happens to the speed of the music?


Now it’s your turn. Play the video from the beginning again and try some of the dance moves yourself. You may need help from someone at home to support your balance!



Fairness and Justice.

‘Tu B’shevat’

Tu BiShvat is a Jewish holiday occurring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat. It is also called "Rosh HaShanah La'Ilanot", literally "New Year of the Trees." In contemporary Israel, the day is celebrated as an ecological awareness day, and trees are planted in celebration. This year Tu B'Shevat  will begin in the evening of Wednesday 27th January and ends in the evening of Thursday 28th January.

  • Jews eat plenty of fruit on Tu B'Shevat. The Torah praises seven 'fruits' in particular: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.
  • A short blessing is recited after eating any fruit. A special, longer blessing is recited for the fruits mentioned in the Torah (the Jewish holy book).
  • Jews also try to eat a new fruit, which can be any seasonal fruit that they have not tasted this year, followed by another blessing. Some Jews plant trees on this day, or collect money towards planting trees in Israel.


Read the information about Tu B’Shevat on the PPT below (scroll down)


Write your own poem about trees, inspired by Tu B’Shevat. There are some examples at the end of the powerpoint to help you.

Challenge: Write your poem in the shape of a tree!
