Welcome to Term 6 - We made it!
We miss you Year 3!
If you have anything to tell us, please tweet us using @Blaise_Primary or email us using firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you!
We hope you are all keeping safe and well. We are immensely proud of you all for everything you are doing during these difficult times - it makes us teachers really appreciate all the children, parents and the school community!
We will be providing weekly tasks and will upload a range of activities which relate to all areas of the curriculum. This is to give you more choice over which activities you would like to do. Our priority is your happiness and well-being, though we know that lots of you like keeping up with the work to keep some routine!
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!
A message for our lovely Year 3s,
We've really enjoyed seeing all of your lovely work! We hope you're all taking care of yourselves!
We look forward to seeing you all again!
From Miss Westacott and Miss Noble:)

We are learning about SHAPE.
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.
If you wish to download the fraction wall to print off please click on the image.
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.
We will continue to have our weekly spelling test on Thursday's, on Purple Mash.
With all this online learning, it is really important that you write regularly, otherwise all the muscle memories that were made to create your beautiful handwriting will be forgotten when we return to school!
Find a pencil and paper at home and practise writing the days of the week/ months of the year. Maybe you could find out all the birthdays in your family or your friends and write these down too!
Your maths skills could even come into place here. Can you work out the difference between some peoples birthdays? For example, my birthday is 5th August. Harry's birthday is 17th October. How many days/ months are there between the two?
