Welcome to Year 3

Autumn 1 2022 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 be found by the river? Which animals make their homes there? Lets get down to the river bank and find out. Now hop on an imaginery boat and travel on some of the world's majestic rivers- The Ganges, The Thames, The Amazon and the Nile- and keep a journal as you follow thie course. Time to investigate. Let's meander through the world of rivers, taking a dip into their watery world.


You will find additional home learning ideas in the documents section of our webpage.

Our Pathways to Read whole class text will be The Sea Book by Charlotte Milner.  We will work on: identifying main ideas from more than one paragraph, identify how language, structure and presentation contribute to the meaning and identify themes in a wide range of books.



We will begin the term with place value then move onto addition and subtraction. Check out the Knowledge Organiser below for more information.


We will be learning about plants this half term. Identifying and describing different parts of a flowering plant, exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth, investigating the way water is transported in plants and exploring pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
