At Norwood this year, we have chosen to have the theme of rivers for our class names. Collaboratively, we decided we wanted to be Yangtze and Mekong Classes this year. We were amazed to discover that the Yangtze River is the longest river in Asia, the third-longest in the world! Fantastically, the Mekong River flows through six different countries but both the Yangtze and the Mekong river's source are very close together starting at the Tibetan Plateau in China.
Why not do some of your own research with your child and see what other amazing facts you can discover about the Mekong and Yangtze rivers Asia?
We will update this page regularly, so please make sure you pop back and have a look to see what we have been up to!
We are really looking forward to what the new Autumn term has to offer us! If you have any concerns, please contact the school office and your class teacher will get back to you as soon as possible. Alternatively, there are the class email addresses where you can also email any home learning completed! Mrs Le Page/Mrs Gower and Mekong Class are email@example.com and Miss Burbridge and Yangtze class are firstname.lastname@example.org. These emails are checked weekly so anything more urgent please contact the office.

Please ensure they have their water bottle in school everyday.
Our PE day is a Wednesday. Children need to come to school in their full PE kit and will stay in it all day.
P.E kit should consist of black/blue shorts and a plain white t shirt with no logos, including trainers. Tracksuit bottoms can be worn during the colder times and should be a dark colour. Children can also wear a jumper/hoody which should ideally be a dark colour too. Your child will be required to tie their hair up and remove their earrings (which should be done at home if possible) in accordance with Hampshire guidance.
If you are not in school and need Remote Learning, please click on the Remote Learning link in the Home Learning Guidance section above.
We will be sending your child home with reading books and library books. Please read at home as often as possible and bring your book back into school when finished to replace it with a new book.
We still have membership to the online times tables games at Times Tables Rock Stars and will be able to remind children of their login details in school if they have forgotten them. This is a vital website over the forthcoming year as all Year 3 children will be tested on their Times Tables in Year 4 and they would benefit from a good grounding in timestables this year.
Home learning will be sent home on a Wednesday and expected back the following Monday. This will be a mixture of creative home learning tasks, Maths and English. Spellings will be sent home in the form of train and ladder words. Please continue to support your child learning these and returning them to school when they are confident.
