Hello Year 3
We hope that you have had a nice weekend and are ready to start your week.
We also hope that lots of you were able to join with us in watching the Good Shepherd Mass from St. Chad's Cathedral last Monday. It was a very special time and we remembered all of you in our prayers.
We hope you are still finding time to come together as a family for prayer. Talking to Jesus can bring us comfort in our strange world.
The prayers this week help children to plan ahead and prepare for the summer holidays, something they might usually be very excited for, but perhaps a little less so this year – they might feel like they’ve already had a long holiday at home!
The word ‘holiday’ comes from ‘holy day’, when people would be allowed time off work to observe religious festivals and feast days. Today, a holiday means any time off from our usual work. These prayers consider how children’s ‘holidays’ can truly become ‘holy days’.
Each day children will be led in reflection using Psalm 34 (note that this is the Sunday Psalm from last week, rather than 5th July) and offered a suggestion for an activity to do, either this week or during the holidays. You might like to encourage children to keep a list of these activities so that they remember them.

It has been lovely to talk to Barbora this week and to hear how well she is getting on learning to play the violin. We can't wait to hear her when we return to school in September! Anna has kindly sent in a selection of the super work that she completed last week- thank you.
Well done to all of those children who are still completing their work every week. We are really proud of you and your determination. We only have 2 weeks left as Year 3 so let's keep it up!
Please remember to email your work to me by Friday so I can put it into Year 3's Final Gallery.
Wow! Devlin what a superstar you have been this term! You completed all the maps for Reading Eggs and now we are delighted to see you have gained your first certificate for Reading Express. We are very impressed with your hard work. Keep it Up!
Those of you on reading eggs should still be doing a lesson everyday.
