This term, our topic is: Flow
From humble beginnings, the river flows down the mountain and into the sea. Pull on your wellies and wade right in. How deep does it go and how fast does it travel? What soil types can you find by the river? Which animals make their homes there? Now hop on an imaginary boat and travel some of the world’s most majestic rivers – the Ganges, the Thames, the Amazon and Nile – and keep a journal as you follow their course. Time to investigate. As part of the local news team, it’s your task to track down the source of some mystery pollution. Where did it come from and who is to blame? Let’s meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip into their watery world.

Each week, Year 3 will be sent home homework in a range of subjects.
Currently, Year 3 have the following homework days:
* Maths, SPAG or English - sent out Friday for the following Thursday.
* Reading - five times a week.
* Maths Whizz - 30 minutes per week.
What happens if you can not do your homework?
If you can't do your homework at home then the door is always open for you to come in to school and do it. Likewise, if you are unsure of a question, come in and see your class teacher before/after school or at break/lunch time. We are here to help!
We will keep you up to date with reminders via Class Dojo and Parent Hub throughout the year.
If you have any questions or concern, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are more than happy to help wherever we can.

We ask that Year 3 are reading for a minimum of 5 times per week - this can be your school ZPD reading book or any other time of text - a newspaper, magazine, website article or your own reading book.
This can be independent reading - without reading to an adult - although if possible then please read to an adult.
We ask that reading is completed at least five times over the week and recorded in reading records.
Once you have completed a school reading book with a ZPD sticker, then you can complete the Reading Quiz to gain points on the Accelerated Reader website here:
