In English this term, all of our writing will be linked to our Enquiry question, 'How can one event change your life?' which all revolves around Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii and natural disasters.


We will be writing non-chronological reports about Italy, writing a setting description about Mount Vesuvius erupting, creating a set of instructions to help someone survive a natural disaster and a cinquain about a volcanic eruption. 


How can I support my child in English?


In Year 3, it is necessary for children to write neatly. We will start to join our writing and work towards earning a pen license. Please encourage your child to remember this when completing any writing or home learning.


The children need to be able to spell a range of different words from our Year 3 word list and words containing the spelling rules that we learn. Look on our homework section of the class page for ways to support your child in their spelling.
