Excellent English

At St Hilda's we follow the Talk 4 Writing approach.  Below you can see what Year 3 will be working on each term in their English lessons.
Autumn Term 1 - Roald Dahl
This half term the children will be looking at the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, written by Roald Dahl. They will be working on creating setting descriptions, using Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory to help them do this, before writing their own wishing tale. They will then move on to writing a persuasive leaflet about their trip to Matilda the Musical! 


Setting Description - Charlie Bucket’s house

Setting Description - Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory

Year 3 Wishing Tales

Autumn 2 - The Stone Age

This half term the children will be making links with their learning on the Stone Age to help them produce a story from a historical setting and a set of instructions. They will be using the instructions from 'How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth' to guide their learning and will be looking at the story of 'The Stone Age Boy.' 

Using Time Adverbials
