Oak Class is made up of our Year 3 children. Our teacher is Mrs Cox .
Homework is given out on a Friday, to be handed in the following Wednesday.
Weekly spellings are based on a spelling rule. Each week the children will investigate the spelling rule in class and will then have a spelling list to learn for a test each Friday.
Our PE lesson is on a Thursday. Please send your child to school wearing his/her PE kit under black joggers and a school jumper.
Every child will be given a reading book at an appropriate level according to their ability. Please help support your child by hearing them read at least three times a week and signing their diary with any comments you would like to make. Children read their books every day in class, so please ensure they bring their books in on a daily basis. Children with Lexia logins would also benefit from accessing the programme at home for at least 20 minutes a week if possible.
Spring Term 2022
The children had an amazing archery training session. They did very well and we even managed to score a few bull eyes.
Collaborated Art Work
This work of art was based upon ‘Starry Night’. This one metre x two metre picture was created by the children. Each child chose the sections they wanted to colour from the 32 individual parts. I’m sure you will agree this is a stunning representation in the style of Vincent Van Gogh.
What is a Diamante?
A diamante – pronounced dee-uh-MAHN-tay – is an unrhymed seven-line poem. The beginning and ending lines are the shortest, while the lines in the middle are longer, giving diamante poems a diamond shape. “Diamante” is the Italian word for diamond, so this poetic form is named for this diamond shape.
The diamante was invented just 40 years ago. It was created by an American poet named Iris McClellan Tiedt in 1969.
