Year 3

Welcome to Oak Class! 

Welcome to the Year 3 class page!

We hope you enjoy reading our Connected Curriculum overview for the term, including exploring our home learning activities which are inspired by our Topic. 

In Year 3, we love to ‘Fly High and Soar like Eagles’ and we strive to be brave change-makers to make a difference to the world we live in. We enjoy making connections with one another, within our partnership with St Mary’s (Yate), with our past as we learn from those that have gone before us, with our local community and across different subjects to fully immerse ourselves in our learning.

Our values are at the core of what we do every day and we enjoy talking and learning about these during collective worship.

Key Information:

Children need to keep a PE kit at school for outdoor games including trainers, and also a pair of wellies that stay in the cloakroom area for days we can learn outside.

On Fridays, children need to bring in their reading records to change and home learning book.

Please make sure children have a named water bottle that gets brought into school each day.

Spring Term Learning

Our Big Question for the Spring term is ‘How fair is our society?’ and our whole school global theme is Social Justice.

During Term 3, we will think about how fair society is today.  In History, we will then investigate life in the Stone Age during the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods and find out what we could learn from these times.  In Geography, we will learn about the Arctic Circle and discover the Inuit people who live there.  Again, we will see how they live and compare it to modern British society.  We will again ask ourselves what we can learn from our studies in order to make Britain fairer nowadays.  In Term 4, we will investigate food poverty in 21st Century Britain ask ourselves what we could do to help.  We then will think about any changes that we as a school community could make to live more fairly.
