In Y3, we aim to continue to develop the children’s writing skills, so that they can:

  • Write with confidence and fluency
  • Use spelling, punctuation and grammar, appropriate to their age group, accurately and confidently
  • Develop the range of vocabulary that they are able to use across different writing genres
  • Develop their skills to use a legible, cursive handwriting style.


At Saint Patrick’s we use the 'Focus English Writing Scheme' to plan our lessons and the 'Letter-Join Scheme for our handwriting'.  Throughout the year, we will be focusing on the following books to support our writing lessons:


Autumn 1 – Greek Myths

Autumn 2 – Stone Age Boy

Spring 1 – The Firework Maker’s Daughter

Spring 2 – Orion in the Dark

Summer 1 – The Flower

Summer 2 – Alice in Wonderland
