Oak Academy

Seesaw

Homework will be set every Friday and returned to school. We are now using our new platform (SeeSaw). The children have been given their usernames and passwords.

ASPIRE

Part of our growth mindset, Year 3 learnt about what ASPIRE stands for. We were able to talk our values and what we hope to achieve this term. Children gave examples of ambition, perseverance, integrity, respect and empathy. We posted these goals to ourselves and look forward to opening them next term to see if we achieved this. 

  

Forest School 

Today (14th September), Year 3 started their Forest School adventure. They were able to explore the grounds of Booker Hill and conduct a mini beast hunt whilst also discussing habitats and the importance of keeping the environment clean. We have learnt so many important skills whilst being outdoors, these including communication, team work, helping others and the importance of being kind to one another. We have loved forest school!

Topic

Year 3 have started Ancient Egypt as their Autumn term topic. First of all, we used our time machine to travel back 5000 years. We stopped at many important landmarks through time in order to understand how long ago this was. We have now started to learn all about the geography of Egypt, learning about the climate and the River Nile whilst also learning how to use an Atlas.
