Oak - Year 3

Welcome to Year 3- Oak Class



This term in Year 3, we have been exploring the wonderful world of food in our ‘Scrumdiddlyumptious’ topic. We began our journey by going on a virtual tour of a supermarket; learning all of the tricks and trades of the supermarket (including those cheeky impulse buys). Our tour taught us all about the different food groups and what is good for us. We learnt about the famous Scottish physician James Lind, and how he discovered that our parents are right when they tell us to eat our fruits because they are loaded with Vitamin C!
In Maths, we have been tackling the fractions head on and learning how to draw them on number lines with their equivalents. We investigated perimeter and symmetry of 2D shapes and began learning the foundations for how to build 3D models. We got to measure weight and volume during our recipe creation task; making delicious and healthy smoothies.
In P.E we have begun training for the athletics competition in the summer term and we have been building our physical endurance with our daily Marden Mile.
In Art, we learnt about the fundamentals of what makes a good sketch and got to sketch and paint some wacky, nonsense fruits. We continued to learn how to debug algorithms in Computing and are excited to create our own websites next term.


Get ready for our next term topic of "Urban Pioneer

Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown, where the lights are bright and every street has a story to tell.

Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city, then capture a moment in time.

You’re an urban pioneer… so get ready to go!

My favourite thing we did in Scrumdiddlyumptious was making our smoothies because mine was really nice. It was pink and had passion fruit, lemon, strawberries, plain yoghurt and milk. It was so delicious!!! - Alex Frith

The thing that I improved on the most this term was using my division skills because I did not know what division meant. I started learning about growth mind-set and that if I try hard, I will do it!- Johnny-Lee Draper

The thing I improved on  most  this term is division because at the beginning of the term I wasn’t  very  good and couldn’t  dived  large numbers by small numbers. I learnt from my mistakes and kept getting 40/40. Like they say practice makes perfect.- Harry Liston

Don't forget about our School trip into Croydon to learn about the heritage and history of Croydon town!! Permission slips need to be back no later than 9:00am on Wednesday April 19th!
