Welcome back to school Year 3. Our exciting new topic this half term is all about rivers and mountains. We will be exploring famous rivers and mountains as well as their features. We will explore the journey of a rain drop through learning the Water Cycle.

In reading we will be using ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ as our key focus. We will use this to explore: the meaning of words, inference, summarising and retrieving relevant information from the text. We will also compare the text to the film.
In writing we will be writing postcards about famous mountains and rivers. We shall also be writing a piece of persuasive writing on river pollution. Our final writing topic will be writing a scientific explanation on the journey of a rain drop.
In Maths we will be exploring geometry where we will learn about turns, angles, types of lines and 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be exploring mass and capacity before consolidating what we have learnt this term.
