“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney
In our reading and English lessons, we will be jumping deep into the world of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third and how he trains his dragon! 'How to Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell will provide us with the story of a young Viking boy looking for a purpose and role in his fathers tribe. We will be experts by the end of the term!
We will be using this text to help guide us through lots of genres of writing! The first genre we are embarking on is a character description of Hiccup himself. Keep your eyes peeled for this, it is going to be fantastic!
By the end of Year 3, we would expect children to be able to:
These are the Year 3 and 4 common exception words. How many can you already read and spell?
During Year 3, we will read, listen to and discuss a range of different types of texts! These will include; fiction, poetry, plays non-fiction and textbooks. We will build on the skills and knowledge that we learnt in Key Stage One by making sensible predictions, thinking about the author's choice of language and using the text to draw inferences on characters' feelings, thoughts and motives, as well as other aspects of reading!
