We are so pleased with all the work you have completed so far this week. Thank you all so much for the Teams responses and e-mails containing your work and a BIG well done for trying your best in everything you have completed.
Today is the last day of the ‘express yourself challenge’ to mark children’s mental health week. We hope that you have enjoyed taking part in this challenge and that it has allowed you the chance to recognise some of your feelings and emotions. We know especially at the moment emotions can sometimes feel overwhelming and we want you all to know that even though we aren’t together in person we are still here to support you and are happy to listen, talk or suggest activities that might help! The ELSA website also has lots of good activities to help to manage overwhelming feelings such as games, emotion cards or mindfulness colouring.
We would love to hear how you have got on with these challenges so please feel free to e-mail us updates to – email@example.com

Warm up – Can you spell you name in different exercises? Perform each for 30 seconds and have a 15 second rest between each letter.
Week 5 of our Athletics Unit – we have completed our long distance running sessions and now we are moving on to… SPRINTS! At the beginning of this unit, we discussed the difference between these 2 skills – remember, long distance requires stamina and slow release energy but sprinting is a short sharp explosion of activity which requires a sudden burst of energy. Have a look at the expert at work in the London 2012 Olympics clip below: (3:00 – 3:53)
When you can, try sprinting lengths of your garden or your local park when you’re out on your daily exercise. Unlike long distanced running, it is not about the distance you run, but the time it takes. How fast can you push your body? Try to time yourself if you can. Cool down – To calm and regulate your breathing, practice ‘star – breathing’ – breathe in and hold it for 5 seconds, then breathe out for 5 seconds. Repeat this 5 times.
Today we recap totalling money – there are 2 short videos and 2 short activity sheets to complete – I promise they are short! Again, no need to print – look on screen and write your answers on paper at home. Afterwards, you could ask your parents / carers if you can count some of the money in their wallet / purse. Remember to mark your own work using the answer links!
This week we have included the La Familia Lesson 5 – Teacher Support Notes for this lesson. These are available on the Teacher site but not on the Parent site – sorry about that! We will include them on our Friday web posts from now on. As always, if there is anything we can help with, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
So far in our topic, ‘Brave People in the Bible’, we have learnt about Noah and Abraham. Today we will be focusing on David (from the story of David and Goliath). Watch the clip below to familiarise yourself with the story:
What kind of person did David have to be to be able to defeat Goliath? What personality traits did he have to possess?
Using David’s Outline (or draw an outline on paper) write down the qualities that you think he would have to have to be able to accomplish something that seemed impossible – write these inside the outline. Would he have to be strong or weak? Have faith or be doubtful?
Around the outside of the outline, write down what David may have felt before, during and after battling Goliath. Was he scared or confident? Angry or calm?
For a list of ideas, use this list of Character Traits and Emotions for inspiration (be mindful though – there may be some red herrings included!).
You have all been working very hard, so make sure you use the weekend as a well-earned break. It’s a time to switch off and relax or spend some time doing the activities you enjoy. Keep smiling Year 3!
