12th October - 16th October.


Hello, it's Charlie and Mabel. We want to tell you about what we've been up to this week in Oak...



We have been writing a biography about the author Ted Hughes. First, we looked at a real biography and picked out the key features. Then, we used the internet to research facts about Ted Hughes. Next, we planned our biography. Finally, we wrote our own version.



This week, Year 3 have been adding and subtracting 2 and 3 digit numbers. Year 4 have been adding and subtracting 3 and 4 digit numbers. We have all had a go at using column subtraction, we have even had to exchange which can be tricky! We use place value counters to help us.



In art we have been making Christmas cards. We drew robins and painted them using water colours.



In P.E we have been doing more hockey. The skills we have learned so far are how to correctly hold a hockey stick, dribbling, tackling safely and passing. We played an Indian Dribble Relay and Rob the Nest.



We have been looking at magnets and their magnetic poles. The two poles of a magnet are South and North.



We learned about coding and had a go at programming on a website called Blocklygames.



We are still learning about the religion Judaism and this week we learned about what Jewish people have in their houses and how they live.


Thanks for reading!
