Lack of clarity – is this history or is it English?

Not all aspects of English development can be taught in context (e.g. phonics, spelling, handwriting)

Teachers may not fully take account of which English skills are needed to talk about, read or generate text in the partner subjects

  • Learning is given a context which supports motivation and enjoyment
  • Learning can be across several subjects simultaneously which is time efficient
  • More opportunities to think creatively for both teachers and children
  • Less stark contrast philosophically between early years and KS 1 & 2

Y3 Non-Fiction Unit Information Texts

Research a particular area (based on own interest or wider curriculum) using reference materials (books, IT sources). Use library classification systems to find books. Locate, read and note relevant information. Decide how to present information and make informed choices by using structures from different text types. Work collaboratively on an ICT-based presentation which includes different text types.

some thoughts for marwell
Some thoughts for Marwell
  • What are the possible responses to this venue in relation to English?
  • How would they link with Science or Maths?
  • If I wanted to plan for a debate, or other talk-based activity, what would I do pre-trip and at Marwell that would set that up for post-trip?
  • If I wanted to create a non-fiction book how would they gather information ?
  • If I wanted a particular text type as my final outcome how much pre-trip preparation would that take; how would they know enough to write about; how would they know about the genre; and would the children write anything on the trip or when they got back?
