Memorandum

In Grade 3 learners continue to expand their vocabulary by listening and reading a variety of texts such as poem, stories, riddles and doing word puzzles.

These modules consolidate and revise the vocabulary and phonics introduced in Grade 2. More opportunities are given for written work producing longer texts of more varied kinds. Learners should not be afraid to make mistakes as the building of confidence and fluency should take priority above perfect written work.

Time scheduled for the modules

All learners should work through all eight modules as the phonics and spelling requirements are spread over these modules. The educator should however allow learners to complete them at their own pace namely ± two modules per term.

Learners read the story “The three little elves”, make the illustrations and express their feelings about the story.

Opportunities are given to learn new English sounds and complete phonic exercises.

Insight and understanding of learners are tested by choosing the right words to complete the sentences.

Vocabulary regarding clothes are expanded and revised.

Integration of themes

  • Social Justices

Learners must know and strive to be thankful, helpful and generous as regards their fellow beings.
