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.

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!

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.
