Please listen to your child read five times a week and comment in their reading records. This term we are encouraging children to read six books by C.S. Lewis. The children can read these independently or be read to by an adult.

Feel free to check our page for regular updates about what we are getting up to in Year 3!
This term we are looking at the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings in our Topic lessons! Our key question is: How did the invaders and settlers shape life in Britain?
In the Spring term, our key question is:
'How important is it for Jewish people to do what God asks them to do?'
At Hanborough Manor this year, we're going to be looking at the Year of the Green Planet. We have made sure our topic for this term lines up with this theme and will be looking at Recycled Robots this term. This will focus on how we can do our part to help save the planet. Please see below for the medium term plan for this term.
In guided reading this term we will be reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We will use this novel and other texts as the basis for our writing in English.
In R.E. this term, we are answering the question: 'How do Christians follow God?' We recently looked at the story of Noah's Ark and how he followed God.
