The Latest News from Year 3 EAL

At the start of the term, Year 3 English as an Additional Language (EAL) worked hard on developing our fiction writing skills to write a warning story based on ‘Kassim and the Greedy Dragon’. We learnt how to use interesting adjectives and the past simple tense to write engaging stories.

We also focussed on using the correct punctuation (capital letters, commas, full stops and exclamation marks). Our next unit was all about writing Shape Poems. We learned how to write a creative and imaginative poem in the shape of its subject, using similes, alliteration and onomatopoeia. Our best poems were put on the display board and the EAL blog.

For the rest of this half term, we are learning to write non-chronological reports (information texts) about dinosaurs which are full of fascinating facts. We are learning how to use titles, sub-headings and paragraphs to organise our writing. We are also using adverbials to make our writing more interesting for the reader.
