To All Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of everyone at Oldfield Brow, can I thank everyone for their extraordinary efforts within an extraordinary year. To all the parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters who have helped support your child over the past months, your support has been much appreciated.
As we now close for the summer, may I wish you all a very happy summer. Some may be travelling away on holiday and some may not, but to you all, we would like to wish you all a good break.
From this point onwards, your child's class email will not be monitored until September, but if you need to contact the school please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply as soon as possible.
Take care of one another and see you all in September. Mr Merrell
Wow Y3SM - We did it!
What an unusual change to our normal routines! During this recent period you have continued to be amazing and have kept going with your enthusiasm; kindness; passion for learning; ability to adapt and resilience. When all is said and done, you have made your parents and teachers very proud. You have achieved so much and learned so many new things. It has been lovely to see all of your videos and photos and the best thing has been your smiles! You are definitely ready to continue your learning journey in Year 4 with Mr Butler. Mrs Flute, Mr Smith and I all look forward to being able to see you 'back in action' in September. Have a great Summer break! Mrs MacKenzie

Being in Year 3 is an exciting place to be, as a whole new part of the school opens up to the children. It is here that they learn to become even more responsible and organised as they become Juniors.
Ms Mackenzie, Mr Smith and the TA team welcome you to Year 3 and the first year of the Juniors!
There are lots of exciting opportunities to learn, both inside and outside of the classroom. During English lessons, the children will study a variety of stories and poems including Poems to Perform and Myths and Legends. The children develop their skills in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and they find new ways to express themselves through activities using drama, music and creative writing. In Maths, they consolidate and extend their practical, mental and written skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They learn to solve a range of word problems as they use and apply their maths in their everyday lives. Topic work leads the children on a cross-curricular learning journey around the world and through Rainforests and back in time to People of the Past! Keep watching the website and letters home for updates on forthcoming exciting trips and visits! We get to keep fit and go for swimming lessons on a Tuesday for the first term, too - Hurrah! 🏊
We love when our parents get involved! Our Chatterday activities provide a range of carefully selected ideas and activities to stimulate discussions, research, independent study and fun at home. Importantly, there are some essentials for home learning: Our children are actively encouraged to read every night at home and practise spellings and times tables on a regular basis throughout the week. Spellings are given on a Monday and are expected to be practised during the week, with a spelling test each Friday. We look forward to welcoming parents into the classroom for topic-related activities, class assemblies, music/drama performances and for parents'/open/curriculum evenings too. Keep an eye on the calendar and letters home for updates on all of these and our exciting range of trips and visits too!
