Year 3 learn all about growing bananas

This week we have been learning all about growing bananas. We have had a particular focus on information texts.

We have read some non-fiction books and identified the headings, sub-headings, contents and glossary. We have learnt to sort words into alphabetical order and have used dictionaries to find definitions of words and written our own definitions. We have looked at the verbs in a non-fiction piece of writing and changed verbs from the past to the present tense. We really enjoyed reading about how bananas are grown and were surprised to find out that a bunch of bananas is called a hand! We used diagrams to gather information and drew our own detailed diagram of a banana plant.

Next week, we are looking forward to our celebration assemblies and sharing some of the work we have done this half-term with you. It will be lovely to see some of you there.

At home, to support your child’s learning at home, you may wish to play a game - sorting words in alphabetical order or read some information books and discuss the layout and style of language. We will also be sending the children home with a poem to learn next week.
