At school, we're busy learning some songs for our school production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in June.
We've got some new ones and we're reviving some old favourites to celebrate the summer.
Here you can find links to the rehearsal videos, with lyrics so that your children can practice at home.
You never know, you might like to join in too!

It's been a bit of a busy week in school - the Year 6 have completed their SATs, and all the children across the school worked hard to minimise any disturbance for the Year 6's, Oak class included! So thank you!
We've been getting stuck into fractions in Maths, and have started to learn how to find fractions of amounts. Everyone has been so enthusiastic about this Maths topic, and I'm seeing lots of progress being made! In History, we continued to look at Ancient Greece, and learnt about some of the Gods and Goddesses. Why not ask one of Oak class to tell you about Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, or Ares?! In English, we created some of our own words using different prefixes or suffixes, and gave them a dictionary definition. All the words will go together to create Oak class' very own 'Dictionary of Made-up Words!'
This week, we've also started practicing some songs for our school production of 'A Midsummer Nights Dream'. Our wonderful director, Lydia, taught the class some of the first song in the performance, and we'll continue to practice each week with Lydia. I can't wait to see the children performing!
Have a lovely weekend, and see you all on Monday!
PS. Oak class, there may be some changes in the classroom on Monday morning!
Hello everyone, welcome back!
It was great to see everyone after the Easter holidays, and hear what Oak class got up to - it sounds like everyone made the most of the weather and had a fantastic break!
This week we've been lucky enough to have a few special visitors. On Wednesday, we had a visit from authors and illustrators Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve - you may recognise them from books such as Grumpycorn, The Legend of Kevin, Pugs of the Frozen North, and Utterly Dark. Sarah and Philip gave a fantastic assembly to all of KS2 in the morning. We listened to some of their new book, had a go at drawing our own mystical steeds, and even created our own board game for Kevin the flying pony! In class, we kept our author hats on and created our own 'Legend of Kevin' stories. As Kevin LOVES custard creams, we may have had a few ourselves to help inspire us to write his next adventure! Sarah and Philip also signed copies of the children's books - it was lovely to see how passionate they are about reading, and these authors.
We also met Lydia this week, who will be directing a production of 'A Midsummer night's dream', which the whole school will be starring in, in one way or another. Lydia talked us through how our movements can help build a character, and show an audience who we are playing. We're really looking forward to working with her more, and getting ready to perform!
Don't forget - no school on Monday as it's a bank holiday! Enjoy the long weekend everyone, and see you on Tuesday!
Hello fellow Oakies!
Well, we've made it to the end of another half-term. It wasn't quite the ending to the half-term that any of us expected, and I hope that everyone is safe and well-away from the effects of storm Eunice! I'm sorry that we didn't get to have our treat for filling up the class pom-pom jar. I'll make sure that we can have it at another time after half-term (along with the Year 2's who will be moving classes!)
Speaking of Year 2's, on Thursday afternoon we said (a slightly rushed!) goodbye to the 6 amazing year 2's in Oak class. The whole class will miss you being in our class, and I'll miss teaching you all very much. But, we're only upstairs so anytime you want to pop up and see us, please do! And I'll always be around to have a chat to!
I hope that everyone has a fantastic half-term, and you all get up to lots of exciting things!
See you all soon,
Welcome to the class blog for Year 3 - Oak Class at Chagford Primary School
