Year 3 have had another busy half term. We have finished off our Roman topic by looking at Roman Silchester and writing tourist leaflets. To link with our Geography work on natural disasters, we studied the book 'Escape From Pompeii' and have worked hard to write and publish our own versions.
In Maths, we spent a week working in pairs to solve problems and investigations together. We have also spent time using money and finding change.
Throughout the half term, we have learnt about the Earth's structure and how this create natural disasters like volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
In Science, we have investigated the different properties of rocks, discovered what soil is made from and learnt how fossils are formed.
In Art, we have tested different media and picked our favourite to create volcano pictures. In Computing, we have been making PowerPoints all about our first year at the junior school.
We have ended the half term by learning about Pentecost and God's message about the Kingdom of God.
We continue to have Maths homework set on MyMaths each Wednesday. We have spellings and a times table focus each Friday - these can be found on the Oakley Home School website. In our classes, we have been using Picture News to discuss current affairs, linking with the UN Rights of a Child and Christian values. A home discussion page can also be found on the Home School website weekly.
