1 Fiction Adventure/quest stories (3 weeks) Traditional tales: Fables (3 weeks) Non-fiction Recount (2 weeks) Instructions (1 week) English Medium Term Planning Year 3 Overview Autumn Spring Summer Poetry Creating images: Read, perform and write Haiku, Tanka, Kennings (2 weeks) Narrative: 15 weeks Non-fiction: 11 weeks Recount = 2 weeks Explanations = 2 weeks Non-chronological report = 3 weeks Instructions = 1 week Persuasion = 3weeks Fiction: Traditional/Fairy Tales focusing on alternative versions (3 wks) Non-fiction: Reports (3 weeks) Explanation (2 weeks) Poetry: Read, recite, perform and write Limericks (1 week) Fiction Mystery/Adventure Stories developing different narrative techniques (4 weeks) Playscripts: (2 weeks) Little Red Riding Hood Non-fiction Persuasion (3 weeks) Poetry Take One Poet Read, recite/perform and write own poems inspired by poet of their choice (2 weeks) Poetry: 5 weeks Weekly extended writing sessions and writing during Enrichment Weeks In addition to the units detailed above, opportunities for pupils to independently apply and consolidate their writing composition skills should be planned for during: Weekly extended writing sessions (fiction and non-fiction) this may also include focus on a particular skill (e.g. use of language to create an image in the reader s mind) Half-termly enrichment weeks (Take One Picture, Take One Book, Take One Film etc) These opportunities should focus on written outcomes that are linked with fiction/non-fiction modules that have been covered earlier in the term or school year (or in previous years where appropriate). This will provide pupils with frequent opportunities to apply and develop previously taught skills as well as enable teachers to assess what pupils can do independently.

2 All units of work should be based round a text and follow the Talk for Writing model 1) Imitation: It is hard to write in any form if you are unfamiliar with it. This stage focuses on children understanding and internalising the story, its structure and any language features/patterns a. Listening to the teacher reading and rereading a tale Teacher using Booktalk when reading out loud i.e. when you read to the class you externalise all the thoughts and questions you would have internally as a fluent and confident reader. (e.g. I wonder why the character is going to do that. That wasn t a very kind thing to do I wouldn t do that if I was that character That makes me think of the beach I went to in the holidays) b. Joining in and retelling IF YOU CAN T SAY IT YOU CAN T WRITE IT c. Analysing and discussing the different features of the text (e.g. vocabulary, use of language and its impact on the reader organisational features, spelling/grammar linked to what is being or has been taught in class) 2) Innovation: Now that the children know the text/story well they are ready to change it a. You cannot innovate unless you have something to base it on this should have come from the Imitation phase b. Its purpose: To allow the young writer to use a coat hanger of a known pattern to structure a few new ideas (generated as a class, group or by the writer individually) c. Innovation may be very simple e.g. retelling a story but just changing the names of the characters or the setting d. Later on, innovation may become more complex, with the whole text being unpicked and a whole new story written based on the underlying structure/character/dilemma etc 3) Invention: The ultimate goal! Children write independently, fluently and creatively because they are familiar with the text type and its conventions a. The imitation and innovation phases should have helped them develop their own toolkit to write independently i. Cast of possible characters and settings ii. Events that might happen and the order they will happen iii. Flow of story language appropriate to genre
