At Oxford Grove we have lots of awards that we are proud of. We are especially proud of our Inclusion award as we are a centre of excellence. This award means that everybody in our school gets a fair chance and that we understand the importance of equality and diversity.
How are we inclusive in school?
Today we have been lucky enough to have Matt Goodfellow, a performance poet, in our class. We have been learning what makes a good performance. Can you remember the four things we needed to focus on?
We then had a go at writing our own poems. We started by writing poems about what we liked and then moved onto poems about animals. We had so much fun and Matt was very impressed.
This week in Miss King’s literacy group, we have been learning all about how to make a mummy! We spent the afternoon writing a set of instructions on how to do this. We learnt lots of disgusting facts about what happens when they make a mummy.
Can you think of what they pulled the brains out with?
What did they store in jars?
Here is an example of our fantastic instructions.
Today, we have taken part in Mr Bamford’s drumming workshop. We spent the afternoon learning lots of chants, rhythms and songs which we then performed to our parents at our music assembly.
Thank you to everybody who attended our Music assembly after school! We hope you enjoyed seeing what we learned in our workshop.
Take a look at some of our photos:
This week in Miss King’s literacy group we have been writing our own fairy tales with a twist. We have looked at how Jon Scieszka took the story The Three Little Pigs and changed it to have been written from the wolf’s point of view.
We changed the story Little Red Riding Hood to Terrible Red Riding Hood.
Can you tell me what happened in our story?
One of our key priorities at Oxford Grove this year is to make sure we are including cross curricular Maths, Reading and Writing into our topics.
In Year 3, we have already started our cross curricular Maths links in our Ancient Civilisations topic. This term, we are looking at four different civilisations and today we have ordered these key events on a timeline. We also used our cross curricular computing links to display our work.
Take a look at some of our fabulous work.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely summer holiday and are ready to work hard this term! We have lots to look forward to like our first class assembly, our sports assembly and our music assembly! What are you looking forward to most about being in Year 3?
