Ocean Class

Welcome to Ocean Class. All of the Year 3 and Year 4 children are in Ocean Class. The class teacher is Mrs Swaffield and the teaching assistants are Mrs Saunders and Miss Ryan.

Investigating Friction

As part of our forces topic, the children investigated the friction caused by different surfaces. They designed their experiment before carrying it out and recording their results. There was lots of discussion as to why the car didn't go very far on the grass!

Singing Day at Child Okeford

The children had lots of fun at Child Okeford's Singing Day. This year's theme was 'Work and Play.' The children learnt a range of songs and actions linked to this theme. They also created some fantastic art work and took part in a series of PE activities. It was lovely to see the children enjoying themselves and mixing with children from other schools. 

Summer Term 2

First Aid

The children had St John's ambulance services in this week to complete some first aid training with them. They were taught lots of important information including how to apply a simple bandage and how to put someone into the recovery position. They were so interested in the session and had lots of fun whilst doing it!

We have another busy term ahead! Please click here to read about it. 

Right Angle Eaters

The Year 3 children have been learning about right angles. They learnt what a right angle is, where they are found and all about angles which are smaller or bigger than a right angle. 


Ocean Class have been learning about rocks and soils. We learnt what soil is made of and the processes involved. After finding out about the uses of compost, we spent time making our own compost bins. We had to find rocks, soil, food scraps and paper to put in them - we of course then added worms! 

We are well into the second half of the Spring Term now. Please click here to find out what we have been up to!

Ukelele Concert

The children in Ocean Class have been fortunate enough to have a music teacher in from Dorset Music Services. Mrs Ely has worked with the children for the past ten weeks and has taught them how to play the ukelele. The children have absolutely loved the lessons and really enjoyed showing off their hardwork in their concert. 


Ocean Class really enjoy working with Mrs Wood once a week to learn French. One of the things they have been learning about are the different places within France. The children carried out some research and presented their findings on a large class poster. 


Having fun with fizzy drinks!

Ocean Class wanted to find out which fizzy drink was the fizziest. They decided to weigh fizzy drinks, shake them to get rid of the gas and then weigh them again. They really enjoyed shaking the drinks as hard as they could before unscrewing the cap to release the gas. Their investigation showed that Diet Cola had the most gas. 

Spooky Science

In science, the children have been learning about skeletons. They learnt that humans have endoskeletons and that our skeletons are made up of lots of smaller bones. The children had fun using cotton buds to create their own skeletons!

Making Shapes

After learning about a range of 3D shapes, the Year 3 children had fun making them!

Team Building

To develop their team skills, Ocean Class spent the afternoon completing a wide range of team building activities. The aim was for each team to complete as many of the challenges as possible.
