Happy Easter Year 3!

From all of us, we are so proud of you!

Over the last two weeks we have been blown away by your positive and determined attitude towards your learning. From maths and literacy to art, science and geography but most of all your commitment to carrying on with huge happy, smiley faces (which we miss)!

We have loved seeing your blogs, work on purple mash and your emails! They really have made us all smile.

Now it is Easter we would like you to have a well earned rest, (more) fun and some quality time with your families at home. These are some activities you could do at home.

Keep being you, keep smiling, keep in touch and enjoy your holidays.

Best wishes, The Year 3 team.

Remember to try and include this weeks spellings into your story but most of all be creative and let your imagination run wild!

Year 3 Maths week beginning 30th March

We have decided to do maths slightly differently this week and rather than use Purple Mash for maths, we thought it would be a nice idea to try using the White Rose materials. These have been specifically prepared for parents and children while the schools are closed to help continue with studies at home.

Each day you need to watch the video first at:


(We are starting from week 1 so be sure to select week 1 and not week 2).

Monday Lesson 1 – Unit and non-unit fractions

Tuesday Lesson 2 – Making the whole

Wednesday Lesson 3 – Tenths

Thursday Lesson 4 – Count in tenths

Friday Lesson 5 – Tenths as decimals

Answer the questions which are on the sheet – you can print this out or complete in your homework book or on a piece of paper. You can then upload a photo of it to the homework blog for us to see.

We understand that everyone is in different and difficult circumstances. The above is suggestion of how you can continue your child’s maths at home. If you are not able to complete the whole week, it is not the end of the world. Please e-mail us via Purple Mash is you have any problems.

Take care,

Mrs McLaughlin, Mrs Pablos & Mrs Trevor

WE are so PROUD of you all Year 3

To all of our wonderful, positive, motivated and smiley Year 3’s.

We would like to say a massive well done to each and every one of you for all your hard work this week. We have loved seeing your blogs, the work completed on PurpleMash and we have loved receiving your emails (keep them coming as we love hearing from you).

We know you have a huge list of potential activities and ideas to work through during home learning but for this weekend we would really like you to relax, take some time out and enjoy spending time with your families.

Maybe give someone a hug, tell them a joke, read a sibling a story, call someone who may be lonely, email or face time them. You are all such lovely humans so just make someone’s day like you make ours everyday.

We all miss you lots but just remember Year 3 we think- YOU ARE AWESOME!

Speak to you all on Monday :)

Mrs T, Mrs M, Mrs P, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Austin


Hello Year 3’s

We are loving seeing your home learning blogs and the Jumping Orange stories are fantastic! Keep sending them to us through purple mash email or adding them to the blog.

We hope you are getting out in the beautiful sunshine, fingers crossed it lasts!

Keep doing you daily fitness! I joined in with Joe Wicks again today and did it in the garden! My legs are aching now but I feel so much better for doing it!

On purple mash are your daily maths activities for you to complete! We would also like you to complete the News report about the volcano eruption and the Volcano poem!

Keep up the super work Year 3 and make sure you keep in touch via email on purple mash!

Mrs T, Mrs P and Mrs M :) :) :)
