Hello Year 3! Here is this week’s RE.

Did you know that there are different views on pilgrimage in Christianity? To some it is important, whereas others do not believe it is that important.

The Christians who do go on pilgrimage tend to go to places because they: are mentioned in the New Testament in the Bible, especially the Holy Land; are associated with saints or miracles.

Some Christians visit Lourdes in France. This is a site where Bernadette Soubirous saw visions of Mary, Jesus’ mother. A spring was found and pilgrims go there as they believe the water is holy and can help cure them.

Challenge: Can you find out where Lourdes is on a map. How would you get there? Plan your journey. What would you need to take with you?

Enjoy your learning!

Mrs Westall


Hi Year 3!

One of my favourite movies is Moana, and I was super excited to find this Moana coding activity for you to try out. You need to use the blocks to move the characters and follow the instructions. It's similar to the code we used with beard man, so hopefully you'll remember that. Click on the link, watch the video and follow the instructions to create your own code.

​Have fun!

Mrs Fraser


Have a go at playing this tune on the virtual piano! Can you work out what song it is?

If you have a real piano/keyboard/glockenspiel at home, try to use that as well.
