What the children are learning this year

We work extremely hard to help the children in year 3 make a successful transition from their KS1 settings. This is achieved by our commitment to fostering a sense of belonging and love of learning via lessons that inspire and challenge through, amongst other things, the use of practical equipment, drama, collaboration and opportunities to learn outside.

Curriculum

School Trips

Oxted locality
Our autumn term topic involves studying the U.K, capital cities, counties and then particularly our own county of Surrey with the focus on the local area of Oxted. To complement this, we visit Oxted and use this to broaden our historical knowledge and how geographical features have influenced the way life is in Oxted today.

Visitors
We are planning to invite visitors in the spring term from the Sikh community to support our learning in RE. We are also planning to run an acting workshop that fits in with our Stone Age topic.
More information about these plans will follow in future.

Supporting Learning at Home

The learning the children are expected to complete at home has a clear focus on key skills that will not only enable them to make the expected academic progress but also foster those vital skills that they will need beyond their time at school. We therefore expect them to practice their times tables and read daily. We ask children to records their daily reading on the Go Read app.

Go Read  is used to monitor reading in school and at home. Children can update home reading themselves using the app or desktop log in.

Class Dojo is an online reward system and communication tool. Parents can contact teachers via the messaging tool. Please note that quiet hours are set by teachers and messages during the school day should be sent to the office.

Mathletics is an online teaching and learning resource. The children can access activities that they choose to support their learning. It is a fun environment which is used in class and can be accessed at home. Children can earn certificates as they learn and gain items for their Avatar.

If children are isolating at home, learning can be accessed via Google Classroom. Children have their own log on for this.

Online Safety

All children need to learn how to keep themselves safe online. Here are some things you can do:
CEOPS is the best place to go if you wish to report something inappropriate on the internet.
ThinkUKnow is where you can play interactive games and learn more about being safe online.
Kidsmart has lots of information about how you can keep yourself safe online.
