Reading:

Everyone in Oak Class will be given a reading record and a reading book to read every evening.  We will award a bookmark for every fifty reads that are completed at home (when the reading entry is signed by an adult). The children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school.

Spellings:

Spellings will be set on a Friday and the test will be the following Friday morning. Spelling books should be handed in by the Wednesday morning.

Homework:

Homework will be set on Fridays and handed in by the following Wednesday. Homework set each week will alternate between Topic, English and Maths work. 

Snack:

Please could you ensure that your child has a small, healthy snack for snack time. They could bring in a piece of fresh or dried fruit, or vegetables (e.g. carrot sticks, cucumber etc). Please also remember that nuts are not allowed in school due to allergies. Thank you! 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us on our class email: oak@bellefield.wilts.sch.uk

Our Brilliant Board Games

Friday 6th May: Whilst the Year 4s have been at St Briavels this week, the Year 3s teamed up with some of the Year 5s to create their own board games. We needed to design, create and then evaluate the games. Here are some examples for you to see. We wonder if these are games that you'd love to play?

Gustav Klimt Inspired Artwork

 Class Trip to Trowbridge Muesum 

Friday 8th October: We had a great time going to the Trowbridge Muesum to learn more about our History topic, WW1. We did 4 different activities where we looked at the local history of Trowbridge, tried on some clothing items that people would have worn 100 years ago and tried our hand at signing up to be soldiers in the war using Attestation forms. I am happy to announce that we were all accepted! 

 

Oak Trowbridge Museum Trip

After lunch, we had a guided tour around some important parts of Trowbridge that held significance in the Great War. We listened to our group leader through headsets and asked questions at each stop of the tour. What a fun and imformative day!
