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

Handwriting

This Week: 

Summertime Poem 

 

This week we are copying a poem about summer. You can print the handwriting page below or you can write it into your Literacy Classwork Book.  

 

 

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

This Week: 

Beaches 

Our comprehension is a little bit different this week; it’s summer themed! 

This maybe a little tricker as there are some words you won’t have seen before, so, ask an adult to help you to read them. 

When you've finished, watch the Seaside PowerPoint for some extra information and videos and download some beach themed colouring pages. :) 

 

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. 

Please remember:

  • Capital letters at the beginning of each sentence

  • Full stops at the end of each sentence 

  • Finger spaces between words

  • To check your work – have you left anything out? Does your sentence make sense? 

Grammar 

Grammatical Agreement 

Following on from our work on pronouns last week, this week is simple revision of possessive pronoun agreement.

PowerPoint

Read through the PowerPoint on pronouns again, if necessary. 

Worksheet

(can be printed and completed or can be written into purple Literacy Classwork Books)

Part 1 

Read through the words on each side of the sheet. Now, match the words on the left-hand side to the corresponding word on the right hand side. 

Part 2

Fill in the correct word to complete the sentence using the words that you have matched in the previous activity. 

Part 3 

Choose a noun to place with a possessive pronoun. 

Colour to finish. 

Independent/Creative Writing

Nonsense Poems

How did you get on with your alphabet poem form last week? 

 

Part 2 of our nonsense poetry topic this week. 

 

This week, our stimulus is the ‘Ning Nang Nong’ by Spike Mulligan.

Read through the poem together and highlight the words that rhyme and an alliteration in the poem. (See posters below for more information on rhyming and alliteration) 

 

 

Writing

(can be printed and completed or can be written into purple Literacy Classwork Books)

Once children are sure of the format of the poem, they should have a go at completing 1 verse using animals and rhyming words of their own. 

Then, using different animals and words, re write it for a second time. 

If your child is enjoying this (and you have time) they can move on to the extension of writing their own version of the next 4 lines. 

 

Remember, the verses don’t have to make sense. The purpose of nonsense poetry is recognition of rhyming patterns and other poetic features, but, mostly, for enjoyment. 

 

Children, ask an adult to record a video of you reciting your poem and send it to your teacher 

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

Should you require more books, you can download the Libby library app with which to avail of many online and audio books which may be of interest to your child.  This service is free of charge, all you need is the number from your library card.
