In year 3 we will continue to develop our letter formation and joined handwriting, learning diagonal and horizontal joins and ensuring our handwriting is of a high standard.
We will be learning more spelling rules such as prefixes and suffixes which will allow us to spell a wider range of words correctly.
We will be extending our knowledge of sentence structure, using conjunctions such as if, because, although.
Through reading a wide range of key texts we will learn how to plan our writing in detail. Evaluating and editing will give us opportunities to improve the structure, grammar and use of vocabulary in our work. Paragraphs and headings and subheadings will structure our writing.
Our writing will link with the Stone Age and Castles.
When we read, we will develop our ability to discuss a wide range of fiction, poetry, plays and non-fiction books.
