Spring Term 2019-2020
This term in Year 3 our topics are 'Chocolate' and 'Rainforests'.
We started the first half term by delving into the world of Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and will spend the second half term enjoying 'The Great Kapok Tree', a text about Rainforest conservation. We will be welcoming our caterpillars soon after half term so we can observe the life cycle of 'Butterflies'.

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation
After reading the biography of a local conservationist, David Shepherd we contacted the foundation and they visited Years 3 & 4 to deliver talks on animal conservation.
We are now delighted to announce Ryvers School have adopted Nkala an African elephant, and Inka a black rhino.
Pupils have been really excited about learning about wildlife in Africa and are keen to learn more about conservation efforts across Africa and the world! It is wonderful to see young people becoming so passionate about caring for our world.
Welcome to Year 3
The Year 3 team are thrilled with how the children have settled into KS2.
A huge thank you to our parents and pupils for embracing the start of a new term with such positivity.

Polite Homework Reminder
Homework will be handed out on a Friday and due in on the following Tuesday. If your child has any questions about the homework the class teachers and teaching assistants will have the opportunity to assist on the Monday.
Reading Records should be filled in each week with the a comment of how your child is progressing with the text. There will be two opportunities each week to change reading books, as well as visit the School Library fortnightly.
All pupils have been given their log in details for My Maths . We encourage using My Maths at least twice a week at home to consolidate the learning in school. Teachers in Year 3 will be setting homework on My Maths regularly and monitoring the progress children are making by setting assessments each term.
Pupils will have a set of spelling words to learn each week and will be exploring spelling patterns in class.
If you have any questions about homework, please see your child's class teacher or Mrs Sondh (Phase Leader).
