Inclusive,imaginative and innovative



In Year 3, the children are exposed to a variety of genres and text types. They spend time identifying features of different texts and enjoy developing their own versions. Throughout the year, the children are introduced to different stories and publications to help stimulate their writing further. For example, newspaper reports with the Iron Man, comic strips with Ug and descriptive writing with Jack and the Beanstalk. 


Reading regularly is deeply encouraged in Year 3 and children develop their love of reading from exposure to fiction, non-fiction and poetry.
