Calypso Carol:

See him lying on a bed of straw
Draughty stable with an open door
Mary cradling the babe she bore
The prince of glory is his name.
Oh, now carry me to Bethlehem
To see the Lord appear to men
Just as poor as was the stable then
The prince of glory when he came.

Star of silver sweeps across the skies
Show where Jesus in the manger lies
Shepherds swiftly from your stupor rise
To see the Saviour of the world.
Oh, now carry me to Bethlehem
To see the Lord appear to men
Just as poor as was the stable then
The prince of glory when he came.

 

Starry Night:

It was on a starry night
When the hills were bright
Earth lay sleeping
Sleeping calm and still
Then in a cattle shed
In a manger bed
A boy was born
King of all the world.

Chorus:
And all the angels sang for Him
The bells of heaven rang for Him
For a boy was born
King of all the world.
And all the angels sang for Him
The bells of heaven rang for Him
For a boy was born
King of all the world.

Soon the shepherds came that way
Where the baby lay
And were kneeling
Kneeling by His side
And their hearts believed again
For the peace of men
For a boy was born
King of all the world.

Chorus:
And all the angels sang for Him
The bells of heaven rang for Him
For a boy was born
King of all the world.
And all the angels sang for Him
The bells of heaven rang for Him
For a boy was born
King of all the world.

Jingle Bells:

Dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh
And over the fields we go laughing all the way
The bells on bob-tail ring,

making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight oh,

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to run in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.

 

Away in a Manger:

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head
The stars in the bright sky
Look down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying he makes
I love thee Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle
'Til morning is nigh

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down his sweet head
The stars in the bright sky
Look down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

 

 

Nazareth:

Things are really cool in Nazareth,

Our city is full of joy,

'Cause this is where girl meets boy.

Barely had a school in Nazareth,

There they join hand in hand,

We’ve booked an amazing band,

The wedding is being planned,

Here in Nazareth.

 

Nazareth is our place to live,

Always willing to forgive,

Nazareth will bring us well,

We can hear those wedding bells.

 

Feeling in a fix in Nazareth,

Rules are to be obeyed,

Arrangements are being made,

Got to get your kicks in Nazareth.

Baby you'll run away,

Start at a brand new day,

Still we can not betray,

Good old Nazareth!

All spelling words are handed out every Thursday and are tested the following Thursday. There is an expectation for spellings to be practised daily at home in their pink books. There are a range of ideas to support your child’s work in their planners and pink books. 

As always, we appreciate your continued support and cooperation.  

We will take a break from spelling homework over half term but it would be beneficial if you still read and practised times tables at home over the half term break.

Homework

 

Autumn 2, Week 2 Year 3

Spelling homework: Write each spelling word out 5 times in different colours

Times tables: Please practise the 4x table.

Reading: Could the characters in this story exist in real life? What makes you think that?

We have also updated the website with a range of resources that might be useful to look at, which will help you with your learning in our current topics.
