Young Oaks - Y3

Welcome to Year 3

We are the Young Oaks class. We are brilliant because we spend our time learning and growing together as a team bringing enthusiasm to every element of our day.


This year Miss O'Callaghan will be your Year 3 class teacher.

We have a wonderful team in our class this year, and will be supported by Mrs Davis, Miss Bawden, Mrs Pitt and Miss Nairn. 

We are all so excited to have you in Year 3 and can't wait to learn with you this year. 

What Are We Learning?
Below you can find an overview of our learning for the whole year and also more detail for each term and the sequence which we will follow to help build our knowledge in each subject.
We use our Knowledge Organisers to help us identify key information that we need to know and remember.
This term we will have PE on a Wednesday and Friday. On both of these days, please come to school wearing your school PE kit with a school jumper. 

If you have any queries please contact Miss O'Callaghan with the email address above. 

Reading - Children should read at home for at least 20 minutes daily (building up to 30 minutes towards the end of the year) as part of their homework. Children on AR will be able to quiz and change their books daily.

Spelling -  Spellings will be set on a Monday and tested the following Friday. Please access the secure class page for your child's weekly spellings.

Number fluency - A focus is set each week and rehearsed daily in school. Homework is to practice this at home. For more details, please log in to our ESchools class page.

Numbots is also part of our home learning and we ask that children log in at home and play for 10 minutes at least once or twice a week. Teachers will monitor each child's time played, current level and correct answers. Certificates will be printed weekly and a ‘diamond level’ badge presentated in assembly when a child completes Diamond level. 

Leap into Learning - Each half term there are also a choice of additional home learning opportunities for children to engage with as outline in our 'Leap into Learning' document.
