Behaviour on the playground

At Oxford Grove, we are lucky to have so much exciting provision on our school playground!

At play time, we have bouncy hoppers and skipping ropes. We also have the MUGA for football, the basketball court, climbing wall and the circle to sit and chat to our friends in.

At dinner time, we still have the MUGA, the circle, climbing wall and the basketball court. We also have an outdoor library, tennis court, astroturf, cricket with Coach Matt and a range of other equipment to choose and to share with our friends.

Year 3 – tell me about our behaviour expectations out on the playground.

The Great Fidget Spinner Debate

Today, we have been learning how to debate. We have worked on our speaking and presenting skills, and come up with different points to persuade the audience of our point of view. We worked in talking partners to practise our presentation skills.

We also worked on our understanding of British Values, as we showed mutual respect with speaking and listening, and tolerance of other people’s opinions.

Year 3 – tell me whether you think fidget spinners should be banned in school! 

Remember, you have to make your point and then back it up with some more detail or evidence. Use these sentence starters and conclusion starters to improve your sentences:

Eid Mubarak!

Today we have had a mini Eid celebration in school!

We enjoyed sharing our experiences of celebrations. We looked at the British Value of ‘tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs’, as we all discussed different celebrations in our lives and our cultures.

Tell me some of your experiences, Year 3!
