Year 3

Writing

We will focus this term on Narrative texts and will be working on using correct punctuation in our written work. This will be followed by enhancing our work by using conjunctions to create a variety of sentence types and using descriptive language to make it more interesting for our readers.  ‘I’ll Take You to Mrs. Cole’ by will be our inspiration for this.

After half term we will write non chronological reports and look closely at using a range of sentence openers to make our sentences varied and using interesting vocabulary choices suitable for the report topic.

The children will have weekly spellings based either on revision words from Letters and Sounds Phonics, high frequency words or the Year 3/4 curriculum and statutory word list.  

Reading

As a class we will read ‘Stig of the Dump’ by Clive King (Mrs. Mills) and ‘One Dog and his Boy’ by Eva Ibbotson (Mrs Williams).

Our whole class text to support Guided reading is ‘stone Age Boy’ by Sitoshi Kitamura. Our initial focus will be to use the text to retrieve information.  We will move on to ‘How to Skin a Bear ‘after half term and one of our main focuses will be inference.

Maths

Our focus this term is place value and calculation strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also aim to consolidate learning the 2 5 and 10 x tables and to move on to 3 x tables.

Mental Maths skills will be assessed weekly in an audio test.

After half term we will work on measure including cm, m and km.
