Oak Year 3/4
Welcome to Oak Class.
Hello and welcome to the new website page for Oak class - we look forward to sharing our learning with you.
Your class teachers are Mrs Gallagher, who is also the School Council Leader and Mrs Larsen, who is the RE leader. We are supported in class by our two teaching assistants, Ms Frost and Mrs Walker.
Keep an eye on the news section and this page for updates on what we are doing in school and extra activities that you and your children can do together at home.

We have been working hard all term, and have enjoyed success in many areas: making our mosaics, performing in our class assembly as well as in our maths, writing and reading.
This term, Jane Stevens came into school to help the year 3/4 children make their own mosaics, as part of our history and art topics.
It was a fantastic experience and every child had to persevere and be a Tough Tortoise in order to complete their work. The finished mosaics are brilliant and the children are very proud of themselves. We were very fortunate to have this workshop funded 100% by the school.
Oak Practical Maths
In maths, we have been learning about the properties of 2D shapes eg lines of symmetry, whether they have perpendicular sides or pairs of parallel sides.
We then used Carroll diagrams to sort the shapes using 1 and then 2 criteria.
PE with Oak
We have been working hard to improve our overall fitness by taking part in BOOTCAMP. We learnt about the effects of exercise on our bodies and felt them too!
Every week we tried to persevere and improve on our scores for each activity. It was good fun but very tiring.
PE with Argyle
On Friday 10th November, KS2 visited St Mary’s Church for a Remembrance service. We all made wreaths out of our hands and wrote messages to those who have suffered some way during the wars of the last century.
Father Sam talked to us about the TOCH lamp and the importance of not just remembering about the past but making it count - being grateful for our freedom and appreciating those around us.
