Welcome to Oak Class  - Year 3




Welcome back to a brand new year of learning!

Welcome to Autumn Term! We are so delighted to welcome you all back and we are excited to introduce our History based theme of Emperors and Empires.  We will be looking at the life and times of the Romans as well as extending our vocabulary by learning new subject related keywords and concepts. 

Autumn term will be full of fun-based learning so get ready for an exciting ride! ​Our aim for Oak class, as ever, is that the children will be continuing to learn in a fun and exciting way, as well as to continue growing as independent learners. 

If you have not seen already, don't forget to check out Oak's Class Dojo page for pictures and messages.  Our Class Dojo page will continue to be a central hub for our learning and so do contact the school office for other information.

Science topics:
Autumn:   Rocks + Light  
Spring:  Animals including humans (extended unit) 
Summer:   Forces and Magnets + Plants

Please note that Oak class have a flexible timetable and this is subject to change.

Blended Learning: during self-isolation and  during any  lockdown.
In the event that your child has to remain at home, during periods of self-isolation, or in the event of  a local or more widespread lockdown, we will continue to provide home learning (blended learning) for your child. This will normally be  from the Oak Academy online lessons, and will link as closely as possible to learning taking place within your child's Totternhoe  CE Academy's class.  These lessons will be posted on ClassDojo, on Oak's Class Story.
Please continue to check ClassDojo daily,  for any new notifications and postings.
