Take a look at what we will be learning about this year.    Year 3 long term plans.

ENGLISH: We have been using 'Talk for Writing' to help learn the story of 'The Hodgeheg'. We have put actions to it to help us remember the important vocabulary and help us know the correct way to punctuate it.


Here is the story:  The Hodgeheg.

What we've been up to so far!

In English this week, we have been describing settings. The children generated some interesting adjectives, nouns and verbs to share what they could see hear and feel.

In science, we have been learning about food groups. Children were given images of food to sort in any way they wished. Lots of children focused on 'healthy' and 'unhealthy', which led us into a discussion about balanced diets. By the end of the session learned the names of the key food groups, were able to give examples and some children were really good at remembering how each food group supported our bodies.

For those of you that find grammar as exciting as teachers then The school run is a brilliant website with definitions and examples of some of those more tricky elements of grammar.  In addition, here is a cheat sheet full of grammar terms that may help as well.
