Oak Class have been working tremendously hard since the start of year 3 and have continued to show our school values every day. I am very proud of the determination and resilience that the children demonstrated throughout the Spring term during our online learning and I am amazed at the amazing work they produced. Everyone in Oak class has shown such enthusiasm to being back inside the classroom. They are much happier to chat with their friends and teachers in person.
Oak class showed a keen interest when learning about 'Stone Age to Celts'. We explored how people lived during that time, what they ate, where they lived, and what weapons they used. There were some amazing pieces of stone age artwork made by the children!
In English, we have been developing our sentence structure to improve our writing even further. We have written diary entries, where many children wrote phenomenal diary entries from the perspective of a stone age child, created instructions from making paper airplanes, and researching to write a non-chronological report about Ancient Egypt. It has been amazing to see the resilience in writing lessons. As a class, we are continuing to work on editing and proofreading our work to ensure that all of our work makes sense.
In Maths, we have worked on the four operations, place value and money. We will be focusing on time, fractions, shapes, and statistics over the Summer term. We have also been using the iPad in our Maths afternoons!
During the Spring term, Oak class showed an amazing amount of interest in our Science lessons learning about light. We planned investigations to explore how shadows appear as well as looking at the materials of different objects, including translucent, transparent and opaque objects. With great enthusiasm, they worked amazingly well in a group to record their findings.
I am very impressed with the determination and resilience that Oak class have been showing. I am very proud of you.
