Year 3 Reading

12th Feb 2020

For our "Journeys" theme, we have been reading stories and extracts set around the world.  Last week, we read the prologue to "The Wolf Wilder" by Katherine Rundell. Each week, our reading follows the same learning journey:

  1. Background - Non-fiction linked to the text.
  2. Vocabualary - unpicking and investigating new language.
  3. Close read - we wrestle with a short piece of the text, to help us understand it better. This might involve making statements or asking questions.
  4. Big Idea - what have we decided? How can we explain ourselves with clear evidence from the text.

The children had a particularly challenging extract last week but they were marvelous and had some truly inspiring things to say!
