Y3 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling

Recognising and Using Abstract Nouns Lesson

This Year 3 lesson covers the prior learning of Types of Nouns before moving onto the main skill of Recognising and Using Abstract Nouns.

The lesson starts with a prior learning activity to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for that step. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning with engaging reasoning and application tasks.

National Curriculum Objectives
No formal objective. However, these words are taken from the year 3/4 non-statutory spelling list and the focus is given to vocabulary of abstract concepts in line with the Spoken Language Guidance.

Spell words from the word list – years 3 and 4.
