Year 3 - January 2019 


Our new story writing genre for this half term is Losing Tales. We have looked at and read, a selection of books that have the theme of losing something, including Dogger, The Lost Happy Endings, Stickman and The Creakers. Can you find any books at home that have a Losing Tale story line? 


We have created story maps that show the story of The Lost Happy Endings and we will  soon begin to think of our own story plots!

Non Chronological Report

We are learning the properties of a non chronological report. 

We are writing a report on 'Sustainable Living'.

We are using J2E software on HWB.

Instructional Writing

We have learned about bossy verbs and how to write a set of instructions.

We wrote instructions to explain how to plant a bulb.

We are writing stories that are stimulated by the book- Journey. The book has no words yet is powerful!  Story mountains have been used to plan and we are beginning to understand what paragraphs are and how they are used. If you had a red pen that could draw anything, what would you draw? Look out for some interesting storylines that will be posted.

The Faraway Tree

We are reading this enchanting book as a class reader. It has been helpful with stimulating our creative, imaginative thoughts.
