This term we are building on our knowledge from year 2. We will be reading 'The Stone Age Boy' and 'The Iron Man'. These texts will be the basis of our English lessons. We will be working on capital letters, full stops, interesting adjectives, commas and adverbs.

There will also be a heavy focus on handwriting. So get your sharp pencils at the ready!

Within the files, you will find the expectations for writing. All children are expectated to be able to use all of these things in their writing to be of a year 3 standard.
