RE from Mrs Gilbert

Week beginning 29/06/20


Hello everyone,

This week I would like you to have a go at creating some Islamic art. On the attached link are step by step instructions as to how to create your own geometric pattern. Give it some colour when you have finished so it looks beautiful. 

Can you remember what pictures you would not find in an Islamic piece of art or in a Mosque? Why?

Have fun and do send me a picture of your completed art work.

I'm really looking forward to seeing you all next week when you come into school.

Mrs Gilbert



Islamic art

Week beginning 15th June 2020


Welcome to another week, and what a sunny one we have in store! I hope you all managed to have lovely weekend, maybe you had a chance to see some of your extended family? All of your teachers are busy in school, but we very much enjoy hearing from you each week. I particularly loved seeing all of your wonderful work you completed about creation stories last week-thank you for sending it in.

This week we are staying on the theme of creation. I would like you to find a creation story that you find interesting. There are plenty on the internet (ask your parents permission first) or maybe you have a book at home. This does not have to be a religious story, one from any culture or country is absolutely fine. Once you have read or listened to your story, you can choose from the following activities:

  • write a creation rap (see the example below for a creation rap based on the Christian belief)
  • Write a poem
  • create a picture book that is beautifully illustrated
  • present your story in any way you choose if you have another exciting idea

Finally, if you do not have the chance to use the internet to search, I have included one story that you may like to use instead. All of the year groups have been set the same task this week, so if you have a brother or sister at the Juniors, you may wan to complete the activity together (no arguing!)

Have fun!

Mrs Gilbert

Hello Year 3,

What a busy week we had at school last week with the Year 6 being back. I hope those of you that had brothers or sisters in school didn't miss them too much!

This week I would like you to find out about the Islamic creation story. Read the information underneath and then you can either:

  • print or copy the pictures from the sheet below and write a sentence retelling the story
  • make an animation on the computer retelling the story (remember NO images of Allah are to be drawn)
  • use lego/box modelling/playdough to recreate the story or part of it

Have fun and do send me any work you complete.

Week beginning 1/6/2020


Hello Year 3,

I do hope you enjoyed the half term holidays with your families and managed to have a break from your home learning. Have you watched the videos from your teachers? We were all a little nervous about making them!

This week, I would like you to complete a piece of work about Allah and creation. There is a video to watch in the link and then plenty of activities to complete on the sheets afterwards. Do not worry if you cannot print these out, you can simply complete the activities on any piece of paper.

Have fun!

Mrs Gilbert

Allah and Creation

Week Beginning 18.5.2020


Hello Year 3, 


I hope you have had a good week and have had lots of fun. It has been another busy week for us. We celebrated Henry's birthday with lots of games and activities at home this weekend. It was very different having a 'lockdown' birthday but I think he had a great time.


The weather is going to get even better this week so I hope you can get outside at points with your family to enjoy it. I am in school this week, looking after the children of Key Workers. It is always lovely to see them and the staff in our group but the school seems very empty without you all.


Last week, I set you some work based on the Christian story of the 'Good Samaritan'.  This piece of home learning is for this week too as there are plenty of activities for you to do. 


Remember, if you'd like to send me any work you've completed, you can via your Year 3 email address. Just make sure your email says they are for Mrs Gilbert to have a look at.


Have a great week!

Mrs Gilbert

Week Beg 11th May


Hello Year 3,

I hope you all had a lovely time in the beautiful weather we had last week. Henry, George and I spent much of it in our garden and the boys had plenty of fun making a Nerf gun target to play with. It was really easy to make, so I have included some photos to show you. Maybe you could ask a parent if you could have a go at making one of your own? You can see how we made it if you zoom in on the photos. 


This week, I have set you some work based on the Christian story of the 'Good Samaritan'. There are plenty of activities that you can have a go at. This piece of home learning will take you two weeks, so please don't think you need to finish it all in one go!


Have fun and send me photos of your Nerf gun targets if you make one. Just make sure your email says they are for Mrs Gilbert to have a look at.


'See' you next week,

Mrs Gilbert

Hello Year 3,

I do hope you and your families are keeping well and you are managing to enjoy the lovely weather we have been having. 

This week I would like you to find out all about the month of Ramadan. Begin by watching the video link below and then have a go at the reading comprehension and/or the paper lantern craft activity. (Parents please note, the comprehension activity is differentiated in three ways. Please only ask your child to complete one of the sets of questions.)

Have fun!

Mrs Gilbert
