Year 3 and 4

A+ R A-

Literacy

Reading:

One of our main aims as a class this year is to increase the pace of our reading. In order to do this and become more fluent in our decoding, we will be focusing on reading more lengthy texts with more complex vocabulary. 

In light of this, our texts this term are The Secret Garden, a classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett and Jumaji, an exciting adventure story by Chris Van Allsburg.

Writing:

We will be concentrating on learning how to write effective descriptions, stories and non-chronological reports this term. In addition to this, we will be developing our understanding of sentence structure, punctuation, spelling and the use of vocabulary to create different effects. 

 

Poetry:

We will be studying Dr. Suess' poetry towards the end of this term through The Lorax and will be looking at other poetry related to issues which threaten our rainforest.
