Throughout the year, we will also be practising spellings through our weekly homework and including the Year 3/4 spelling and common exception words in our lessons. You can find a copy of these attached below. 


In reading, we complete whole class comprehension lessons where we often use the same book we are doing in writing lessons. We cover important skills such as predicting, inferring and finding themes. A copy of Year 3 Comprehension skills are attached below too. 

Reading Comprehension Objectives

Autumn Term 1 


In the Autumn term, we are reading 'The Story of Tutankhamun', followed by 'The BFG' . In our writing, we focussed on descriptive pieces using expanded noun phrases, similes and interesting verbs and adverbs

We will continue to practice our punctuation and spellings too! 

Mummification instructions and a biography on Tutankhamun.

We learnt what similes were and played a matching game. We then used these to help us create similes about the evil giants in 'The BFG'. Some of us were able to add in some expanded noun phrases too!

Our Giant Wanted Posters are up on display in school! We worked really hard to create posters to help catch these fearsome creatures!

Autumn 2 


This term, we are looking at the fictional book 'The Iron Man' followed by Henry's Freedom Box- a true story from the Underground Railroad. During these books, we will be writing narrative re-tells and diary entries whilst continuing to practise a range of skills, such as, fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases and figurative language!
