EAL in Year 3

At the start of Year 3 in EAL, we worked hard on developing our fiction writing skills, writing a cautionary tale based on ‘Kassim and the Greedy Dragon’.

We had fun finding interesting adjectives in the story to use in our own writing, and we persevered with using the past tense. We also focused on punctuating our sentences properly with capital letters and full stops. In the next unit, we became experts at writing non-chronological reports (information texts) about dinosaurs. We learned lots of fascinating scientific language, and we found out how to use titles, sub-headings and paragraphs to organise our facts. We also used fronted adverbials (e.g. Surprisingly; Interestingly) to make our writing more interesting for the reader. We are currently learning how to write a ‘rags to riches’ fairy tale, using strong adjectives, past simple tense and speech marks. In the next unit, we will be learning how to write a creative and imaginative festive poem, using similes, alliteration and onomatopoeia. Our best work this term is on the display board and the EAL blog:
