Dear Parents/ Guardians
Welcome to Grades 3 and 4
The beginning of Grade 3 is a fantastic transition for students as they begin their middle years education. Formerly part of the junior school, students of Grade 3 are introduced to a wide range of exciting environment that involves them becoming independent thinkers and learners.
Our classroom based programs focus on Numeracy, Literacy and Challenged Based Learning. Students are also involved in:
Welcome back to Term 1!!
Behalf of Oak Primary School we hope everyone had a safe break! We have lots of exciting things happening in this term.
Practise reading the time on an analogue and digital clock. Revise multiplication facts by 2s, 5s, 10s. Practise using mathematics in everyday life e.g. money, cooking (e.g.: measuring ingredients/fractions). Quick recall of addition and subtractions facts to 20 (roll two dice and add the numbers together).
Literacy - Reading
Children will be given their Home Reading Journal commencing Monday 8th February to help establish a good reading routine. We encourage parents to sit with their child when they can and
enjoy a rich discussion with them about their book. Students should read for twenty minutes a night, four nights a week.
We use the ClassDojo to help track behaviour in the classroom. The app allows students to earn points when they display the positive behaviours that we have set as a group. With teacher guidance, students can set small, achievable goals each week to
help improve their classroom experience.
