Welcome to the Year 3 class page




The Year 3 team would like to take this opportunity to wish you a lovely Easter break. The children and our families are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult and uncertain time. We miss you all!

During this time, we take the opportunity to remember what is important; Holy Week is the perfect opportunity to be reflective and think about the sacrifices that Jesus made for us all. 


On this page you will find some activities to help you to be both creative and reflective during the Easter period. 



Holy Week

Next week is Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday – 5th April.  Since the early days of the Church, this week has been a sacred time because it commemorates the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus. Although we can’t go to church at the moment, there are regular livestreamed masses from St. Michael and St Martin, which you can listen to: Go to to find news about this.


Holy Week Preparation Days:

Palm Sunday:

  • Over your meal, talk about how Jesus is the centre of our lives and our faith.  How do we feel when we make Jesus the centre of our lives?


Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday:

  • Help your family clean the house.  Think of spring housekeeping as a prayerful preparation for Easter.
  • Decorate eggs: These are a symbol of the new life that comes with the Resurrection.


Holy Thursday: This day recalls the Last Supper when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.  It reminds us that we are called to serve one another.  Here are some ideas for celebrating the day.

  • Listen to a livestreamed massThe Holy Thursday liturgy marks the beginning of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus.
  • Help someone: Do something special for someone in need. Read Matthew’s Gospel account of the Last Supper.
  • Talk about itThe Eucharist is the main sacrament in our Catholic faith.  Talk about our belief that we receive the real presence of the risen Jesus in Holy Communion.  How will we be changed by this when we receive the sacrament?


Good Friday:

This day commemorates the crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus.  It is the most solemn and sorrowful day of the Church calendar.

  • Watch the Good Friday liturgy.
  • Set aside some prayerful time between 12 noon and 3 pm.
  • Try to copy Jesus by forgiving someone who has hurt you.
  • Talk about it: It is fine to feel sad on Good Friday.  Jesus’ death on the cross is a sacrifice like no other.  He died to teach us about everlasting life.  Talk about friends and family who may have died and how we believe that, because of Jesus, we hope to have new life in heaven.



Holy Saturday:

This day commemorates the time of darkness and waiting, when Jesus was in the bomb.  It is also a day for final preparations before Easter.

  • Talk about it: The Easter Vigil begins with the symbol of fire.  Talk about how fire represents that Jesus is the light of the world.  He brings light to the darkness and new life to a sleeping world.


Easter Sunday

  • Listen to a livestreamed massToday is a very special day.  It’s Easter Sunday, when Jesus rose from the dead.  We are celebrating and thinking of new life. Find this reading in your bible: John 20: 1-9 and share it with your family.
  • Celebrate and enjoy the day. We are filled with hope today because Jesus resurrection shows us that nothing is impossible for God.  Although children live in different countries, and speak different languages, and eat different food, we are all God’s children.  We are part of one big global family and we are called to care for one another as sisters and brothers.
  • Colour in the Cafod activity sheet and think about your hopes for the world.
  • Make Easter cards to send to family, or friends.  You could use the template on this week’s Class Pages.


Look out for signs of hope and new life in the week ahead and choose one thing to try and make your hope for the world come true.
