Amazing Grace

We will begin our English journey with the text 'Grace and Family' by Mary Hoffman. This book leads on from their Year 2 final summer text 'Amazing Grace' which children looked at for their home learning during the Summer Term. 


In Guided Reading we will be:

  • Developing our love of reading by reading this text,
  • Predicting what will happen next,
  • Text marking and picking out key language,
  • Sequencing events,
  • Inferring how a character is feeling,
  • Writing a book review of this class text.


In English we will be:

  • Applying capital letters and full stops,
  • Using a range of conjunctions,
  • Adding description to our writing through the use of adjectives,
  • Making sure we are writing in the correct tense.


We will then apply these skills to a short writing outcome weekly, for example, a character description of Grace, a setting description of Gambia and writing a book review of our class text.


In addition to these sessions we will be learning our daily phonics, spelling rules and handwriting.
