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.
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.

Summer Term Learning
Our Big Question for the summer term is ‘How can we make our environment more sustainable?’ and our whole school global theme is Sustainable Environmental Development.
During Terms 5 and 6, we will think about how we can make our environment more sustainable. In Geography, we will learn about mountains and volcanoes. We will explore the features of volcanoes and mountains and consider why people would choose to live near a volcano. We will look at the Rwenzori Mountains, once thought to be the source of The Nile, and ask what may have caused the devastating floods there in 2020. In Term 6, we will explore Ancient Egyptian society. We will ask what we can learn from Ancient Egypt in order to care for our environment.
