Friday 5th June

Hi five Friday St Jude, here are your lessons for today.

English - you are going to finish your stories today.  If you have finished then I would like you to go back and start editing your work.  Check for missing punctuation ( full stops and capital letters).  Editing your work is a really important skill you will need for year 4.  If you finish all that then please complete the grammar activity on homophones.  You don't need to print the sheet, you can complete straight from your computer.

Maths - see White Rose tutor video and the worksheet to accompany it.  I will only set Purple Mash work if it ties in.  Today I have set work on Purple Mashsmiley

Guided Reading - Oxford reading tree

The coming of the Holy Spirit.


Recall the promise of the Holy Spirit based on Acts 2:1-18, 43 The Coming of the Holy Spirit.

Mary and the apostles were in Jerusalem living quietly together.  They were uncertain as to what to do but wait.  There were lots of people in the city at that time because it was the Jewish feast of Pentecost, that is thanksgiving for the harvest.


This reading from the Acts of the Apostles describes what happened:


When the day of Pentecost came, all the believers were gathered together in one place.  Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong and powerful wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire which spread out and touched each person there.  They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to talk in other languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.


There were Jews living in Jerusalem, religious people who had come from every country in the world.  When they heard this noise, a large crowd gathered.  They were all excited, because all of them heard the believers talking in their own languages.  In amazement and wonder they exclaimed, “These people who are talking like this are Galileans!  How is it, then, that all of us hear them speaking in our own native languages?  We are from many different countries yet all of us hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things that God has done!”  Amazed and confused, they kept asking one another, “What does this mean?”  But others made fun of the believers, saying, “These people are drunk!”


Then Peter stood up with the apostles and in a loud voice began to speak to the crowd.  “Fellow-Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, listen to me and let me tell you what this means.  These people are not drunk, they are filled with God’s Holy Spirit.”


This is what the prophet Joel spoke about: God says: “I will pour out my Spirit on everyone and they will proclaim my message.”  Awe and wonder came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles.

Acts 2: 1-18, 43

The Good News of God’s love and power spread like sparks from a fire and warmed the people’s hearts towards God and one another.  The people who were watching were astonished when they saw how much they loved one another.  The Holy Spirit inspired a new way of living.

Answer these KEY QUESTIONS


  1. Why were the friends of Jesus hidden away when the crowds were celebrating in Jerusalem?
  2. Why do you think that the coming of the Holy Spirit was likened to strong wind and tongues of fire?
  3. Are there any questions that you could think of, after listening to this passage that might be difficult to answer?

You can now draw a picture of what happened.


Thank you for working so hard at home.
