This story, called 'The Journey' by Neil Griffiths, will inspire our learning this half term.


We will look at the journey of a river from its source to its mouth, and the various obstacles a river meets along the way, including waterfalls and ox-bow lakes.  We will be writing setting descriptions and information texts about rivers. 

We will also be looking at the own personal journeys we make as we start a new year, a new key stage and a new chapter in our lives. 


In PE, both classes will be continuing with the Footie Bugs programme and 3KD will be exploring new skills in hockey and 3GA will be using our bodies to represent water and created a dance inspired by the movement water makes, from its start in life as a rain drop to is journey to the sea.
