Reading for meaning
In Year 3, we have reading for meaning sessions three times per week. This is where we explore a text and consider it through using reading skills, known to the children are VIPERS. (see below)
Where possible, we link our reading for meaning texts to the topic or genre.
|Aut 1||Aut 2||Spr 1||Spr 2||Sum 1||Sum 2|
Flat Stanley- The Great Egyptian Grave Robbery
Africa is not a Country
Christmas poetry- Twas the night before Christmas
|The Hodgeheg||The Tunnel||Fantasic Mr Fox||Volcanoes Science text|
Wherever possible this year, our English curriculum objectives will be taught in a cross-curricular approach linked to our History and Geography work.
Our reading for meaning sessions will also, sometimes, link to topic themes but we also ensure children experience a range of texts and genres when reading and writing in Year 3.
