This week Year 3 experienced a library session with Mrs Ajmal. At Oak Hill we like to promote a love of reading and of books and this session certainly did that. Not all children have had the opportunity to visit a library outside of school so to begin with, the children were shown where the fiction and non-fiction sections are in our school library. We also talked about how the library is set up and how we keep track of all the books that come and go in and out of the library. Next, in pairs, the children had the […]

Year 3 have thrown themselves back into their learning after the Easter holidays and we have so much packed into our very short half term that we hit the ground running on our first week back. The children have been looking at plants in science and were given the statement: Plants can survive as long as they are given adequate amounts of liquid. The children discussed this statement and decided if they agreed or disagreed. In order to test this statement Year 3 set up a science experiment to give plants different types of liquid to see how they reacted. […]
What an end to our topic we have had this week!! The children have completed the models of their new homes for Persimmon. The children had to use their knowledge of maths by measuring 12 pieces of wood accurately to make a cube. They then used triangles of card to strengthen the wood at a meeting point. We discussed how Persimmon would also do this when building foundations and walls in homes. Their art skills were then required to design a roof and the front of their houses in order to include different features of buildings that we have been […]
On Thursday 28th March Year 3 had a very busy day with the outdoor learning. The weather was in our favour and it was fantastic to see the children enjoying their learning in the spring sunshine. There were many curriculum areas accessed throughout the day that allowed the children to have a wide variety of learning in a fun way. We used our knowledge in History, Maths, Science and English to enjoy the day. In science, we measured shadows ( when the sun came out) and studied forces by deciding which surface was best for a toy car to travel […]
Our new topic has started well and we have received a request from Persimmon homes to help them design homes for a new development that they want to build. The children have been looking at building across different times in history and looking at similarities and differences to how buildings were designed then and now. Next week we will be having a visit from Persimmon homes to tell us what it takes to built a new development and it is then that the children will be set their next challenge!! In English we are reading the book Beowulf the Brave […]
