EPIC READING Log-in code: yvk0450
We are reading...
At the start of the school year, we will be watching a short film called 'Soar' and creating some written dialogue using speech marks from this.
Afterwards, we'll dive into "The Wild Robot" by Peter Brown - an amazing book which will contrast nicely with our Guided Reading text for the first half-term, called "Booom!" by Alan MacDonald.
We'll use all our texts to build on our basic writing skills, and challenge ourselves to use more complicated punctuation and sentence structures.
In Guided Reading, we'll test a range of reading skills with a variety of questions designed to make us understand the text more deeply. To complement this, each pupil can access texts (with audio description too) via our Epic Reading button.
SOAR - An Animated Tale
Investigating a mysterious explosion in the Florida Everglades, a crop-duster named Bill discovers a lone crate that survived the wreckage...
Check out the animated tale "Soar" that we will be looking at during the first 7 to 10 days of our English lessons. By the end, we'll use this to become really good at writing speech with punctuation.
To begin with, we will recap numbers to 100 and also look at tens and ones using addition.
Afterwards, we'll focus on: hundreds, numbers to 1000, numbers to 1000 on a place value grid, 100s 10s and 1s, we'll recap number lines to 100 and to 1000.
You can access a range of supporting videos below on each of these topics, which could be useful if your child feels they haven't quite understand a particular lesson as the term goes on.

We have a brilliant topic which will push our historical skills to the max, with a dash of geography thrown in too. We'll be examining life in the Stone Age, through the Bronze Age and into the Iron Age. We'll end just before the Romans arrived.
Every child in Year 3 has been given a Knowledge Organiser on this topic in their school bag, on Friday 3rd September. However, if you lose it or were away on that date, you can access it using the Knowledge Organiser button for History lower down this page.
