Literacy

Welcome 

Please find, on this page, the core areas of Literacy which are covered each week in P3. Each section below will contain an activity to be completed weekly. The activities can either be accessed here or will be found in booklets which have been sent home.  

 

These resources follow the schemes of work covered in P3. If you wish to extend your child's learning please do so based on the content covered on this site. 

 

You will find support materials to guide your instruction in the Helpful Resources section of the P3 site. 

 

Many Thanks, 

S. Black and L. Neill

Children should complete 1 page per day (Mon - Thurs) in HFW Booklets.

Handwriting

This Week: 

Complete pages 14 and 15 - Capital letters

Ensure writing is neat and on the line. 

Does your handwriting look the same as the example?

Try your best!  

 

Handwriting Tips:

1. Use a sharp pencil 

2. Practise letter formation with your 'Magic Finger' before you form your letters on paper 

3. Trace over the letter or word before you try your own formation 

4. Take your time and be as neat as possible 

Comprehension

We will complete 1 comprehension activity per week. 

Children should read over the short text and endeavour to answer questions as fully and independently as possible. 

 

If your child finds reading the given text difficult, we would encourage you to read it aloud for them. Answers should be written, where possible, in full sentences

Grammar

This Week we will be learning about adjectives. 

Adjectives are exciting words which we use to describe nouns. They add more interest to our writing.

 

Please read over the attached powerpoint with your child. Ask them if they can think of and use some adjectives to describe people, places or things. 

E.g. The furry cat

 

Children should then complete the 'Alien Adjectives' sheet which is enclosed in their work packs which have been sent home. 

Independent / Creative Writing

 

Design an Alien

Children are to design their own alien. 

Using interesting adjectives, they should write 3 descriptive sentences about their designed alien. 
Children can either print the attached template to design their alien, or can draw it straight into their purple Literacy Classwork Books. 
 

Children, we would love for you to email us a picture of your alien so that we can see all of your creations! 

Reading

Throughout this time away from school, your child should be reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books.  You may have access to a good selection of books at home or perhaps you might need to visit the library, for as long as it remains open.

 

Libby
