We are all friends at Oxford Grove,
Being good friend is really important, Anyone can be a good friend.
You may even be the next winner of the Oxford Grove Good Friend golden coin.
I am looking for the next good friend.
Tell me something a good friend has done for you?
What do rocks hide?
In science we have been learning all about rocks and soils.
Year 3 can you tell your friends and family what you have learnt.
WOW! what an amazing treat.
Year 3 you learnt lots of ideas for activities. Also lots of great healthy facts.
What was your favourite fact?
Last week we performed our KS2 Christmas production. It was all about a star that had to shine really brightly to guide the way to Belthlehem. We sang a song called Rock a bye baby rock and another called shine! Miss Roscoe was really proud of how everybody tried their best and sang out proudly, everybody remembered the actions as well.
Well done KS2, a great production that was enjoyed by everybody. Thankyou to all the parents who came to support the show, I think you will agree all the children did a fantastic job!
In year 3 we have been thinking about what makes a good friend. We thought about all the qualities we would like our friends to be:
We thought about whether we are all these things to our friends and if we are not, how we can try to be more like a good friend. Let’s keep being kind year 3 well done!
In year 3 we have been learning about ancient civilisations. We have already learned about Ancient Egypt and are now focussing on the Indus Valley. We looked at the kinds of cities and houses the people would have lived in.
We used our literacy knowledge and the new skills we had been learning in English to write a letter to a friend imagining that we lived in the Indus Valley.
Well done Year 3, great cross curricular work.
This week has been a special celebration for some children at our school. It has been the celebration of Diwali. We had a special assembly to learn all about the traditions and story of this celebration. After, Michelle came in to teach us a Diwali dance. We had to use our bodies to represent the story of Rama and Sita.
We had great fun and Miss Roscoe thinks we may have some budding West End dancers in our class! Well done 3R.
This half term we have started a new Science topic all about light and dark. This week we used our maths skills to create our own light boxes and thought about why we couldn’t see inside them. We discovered that darkness is the absence of light and that without a light source our eyes can’t see. When we shone a torch through a hole we had made we could see better inside the box.
We also discovered from our experiment that the light from the torch traveled in a straight line through the hole. We will be investigating this further next week by thinking about the way light moves and how it can reflect from different surfaces. Great Science work 3R!
