Blaise Primary School And Nursery

Creating Success. Laying foundations, thriving on challenge and believing we can.

Year 3

During this time, we will continue to upload work daily that will continue from where we stopped in class. There is also a Maths Booklet and English Activity Booklet that are available to download. Please continue reading every day and practising times tables!

Your child has a login to practise their times tables on the PiXL Times Tables app - this can be downloaded free from any app store.

 A lot of the learning we set will be accessible on Purple Mash, which your child also has login details for. Once completed, I will be able to view/ provide comments to stay in communication with the children as much as possible!

                                                                        

 HAPPY APRIL YEAR 3!  

We are all missing each other... thankfully you can now send emails to your friends on Purple Mash! 

A message for our lovely Year 3's,

We've really enjoyed seeing all of your lovely work  so far and have particularly liked the Spring posters!  We hope you're all managing to enjoy some of this lovely weather as well as taking care of yourselves! 

We look forward to seeing you all again! 

From Miss Westacott and Miss Noble:)

Maths

We have just started learning about fractions.

Within Maths at Blaise we follow a scheme of learning from White Rose available to download, which provides the small steps and resources for the children to complete, following National Curriculum objectives.

 Below is a fraction wall I have created for the children to refer to: 

If you wish to download the fraction wall to print off please click on the image. 

Here is a link for Year 3/4 Maths reasoning questions if your child really enjoys a challenge!

__________________________________________English 

This term we have been reading the book Krindlekrax and the children have found it super interesting! We have discussed characters and their personalities, motives, feelings etc. 

Higher level Vocabulary - Children in Year 3 are super at extending their vocabulary and are encouraged to use a range of exciting words in their speech and writing. These downloadable word mats help them out by introducing them to some more interesting words to in in replacement of some of the regular words they may use, like small for example.

 

Spellings

We will continue to have our weekly spelling test on Thursday's, on Purple Mash. This week the children will be tested on their Week 4 spellings (words ending in the 'g' sound). 

Below are a few resources available to help the children practise these:

Find a pencil and paper at home and practise writing the days of the week/ months of the year.

Theme

Geography

Our theme is 'Extreme Earth'. We have been learning about earthquakes - what they are, how they happen and the impact they have on communities. 

The tasks set for this will be uploaded to Purple Mash for the children to complete. 

There is also a wide range of resources online that provide facts/ useful and interesting videos on earthquakes. 

Art and Design

We have also been looking at architecture and particularly earthquake proof buildings. What is an earthquake proof building? How do you design an earthquake proof building?

Children should consider the aspects they have learnt in class (cross bracing, base isolation, shear walls and the shape.  

PSHE

Jigsaw this term has been focused around keeping fit and healthy. The children will have set themselves for homework a challenge/ action plan to keep themselves healthy and should focus on this.
