Reciprocal Reading Planning Example - Y3

Reciprocal Reading Planning Example - Y3

This week we have begun to introduce Reciprocal Reading to Y3. For the first session we did it as a whole class. First I handed out the picture that went with the story. We discussed it and came up with words which described the pictures and then predicted what the story was about. Next we clarified any unknown words / phrases, encouraging the chn to ask questions to each other and then I gave them three question, a looking one (retrieval) and clue (inference) and then a thinking question - their opinion. Finally we summarised the passage using the key points. The children loved this passage - it can be found online - COLD AS CLAY (from a book full of short scary stories) and the photo was of two people on a horse.

This is a worksheet where the chn have to discuss what the tally chart is about. LO and SC are included on the worksheet. Then the chn have to write the headings above the columns on the chart. Next the chn have to collect the data themselves, asking their peers which biscuit is their favourite and record it in tallies on the chart. Chn have to complete the chart and then discuss what they have found. Finally I asked the chn to draw a bar graph and then analyse the data in their books.

The worksheet ha the LO & SC and there is a brief plan for the lesson which I have also attached. Will save time! I hope it helps.

Right angles and turns Year 3

Right angles and turns Year 3

I made this worksheet for a lesson recognising the relationship between right angles and turns. The children have to identify the right angle and then work out how many right angles in turns e.g. 1/2 , 1/4, 3/4 and complete turns and then draw them. There are two worksheets which are differentiated and both have extension activities where they have to work out how many turns the right angle has moved! Th worksheets have the LO and SC to make the structure of the lesson and marking easier.

Introduction to Right angles Year 3 - identifying and recognising right angles

Introduction to Right angles Year 3 - identifying and recognising right angles

This is a smart note book slide that I made for my lesson on introducing right angles to Year 3. I worked through each page and then gave them post-it notes to identify right angles within the classroom. After that they were given a tray of objects on their tables to see if they could identify and recognise any right angles. They completed the worksheet I gave them (which I will also upload) and then in the plenary we used the last page of the slide to extend their thinking and learning - a reasoning question. Will save plenty of time!

Introduction to Recognising and identifying Right angles - worksheet - Year 3

I made this worksheet for an observation on introduction to right angles. I have also uploaded the SMART Notebook that I used along side this lesson which helped me to keep the lesson flowing at a good pace and really embed the new learning. The worksheets are differentiated for SEN - MA/LA - HA. All sheets have the LO and SC on them which the chn can read and use to structure their work to make sure they are successful. The children were given a tray filled with objects which they had to use post-it notes to identify any right angles and then fill in the table on their worksheet using the correct mathematical language. Will save time!

Creating a persuasive poster on the Caribbean Year 3

Creating a persuasive poster on the Caribbean Year 3

This is a resource where the children have to create a persuasive poster on the Caribbean. There are two photos of a Caribbean beach which the children can choose from. Then the children use the boxes provided to write their persuasive information on and cut out and stick on the poster. I encouraged the chn to use all of the features of persuasive posters e.g. alliteration, bossy verbs, slogans, rhetorical questions, facts etc. They loved this lesson. I also enlarged the sheets to A3. Will save lots of time!

Newspaper report Mary Anning finding the fossil -  differentiated Year three

Newspaper report Mary Anning finding the fossil - differentiated Year three

This is a newspaper report ready for the Year three class to complete. We have read the story 'Stone Girl Bone Girl' and we have studied features of newspaper reports, identifying them in real newspapers and other newspaper report texts using highlighters. It is now time for the chn to write their own, based on Mary Anning finding the sea monster fossil. For the more able group I have left this blank - they have to include a catchy heading, by line, strapline, quotes, paragraphs, caption for the photo etc. Then I have differentiated the other groups where some have to think of the strapline / introduction, some have the strapline given, some have the heading given and some have to think of it themselves etc. All worksheets have a photo of the fossil on there. Easy to edit and will save heaps of time! The title of your newspaper will have to be changed as I have done this one to suit our school.

This is a worksheet where the children have to rewrite the story of David and Goliath (short, picking out the main details of the story). The worksheets are differentiated for LA and MA.

At the end of the worksheet there is a question for LA - asking them what they liked about the story and why. The question at the end for the MA was asking them what they found inspiring about the story and why. As a whole class we practiced writing a summary of the story together, but you can use this to edit and make even better with your children! Will save time!
