Y3 English

Spelling

During Autumn 1 we will be focusing on the rules for adding suffixes to words, after which we will move onto the words in the Year 3 spelling list above.

Children will be sent home with 6 spellings each week to practise and will be tested on 7 words 1 of which children will have learnt previously.

Spelling test will usually take place on a Friday.

The Power of Reading

Throughout the Autumn term our focus story is: 'Leon and the Place Between' by Angela McAllister.

We will be exploring and developing a variety of reading, drama and writing skills, using the story as a stimulus.

Poetry

Our focus poem this term is 'If I Ran the Circus' by Dr Seuss.
