Lemurs - Year 3

Year 3

Hello Lemurs,                    

Welcome to the wonderful world of Juniors. 


This term we will be continuing Year Three with some exciting topics. Read below to find out more. 




This half term we will be completing Multiplication and Division before moving onto Money and Statistics. 


We will be learning to multiply and divide the 8 times tables. 

We will notice the relationship of doubling between times tables. 

We will divide by numbers and notice division cannot be done in any order

and we will learn to multiply and divide 2 digits with 1 digit. 

  • add and subtract amounts of money to give change, using both £ and p in practical contexts
  • interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables
  • solve one-step and two-step questions [for example ‘How many more?’ and ‘How many fewer?’] using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables



We will visit the wonderful world of traction man and used personification to write our own stories. 

This term we will be using conjunctions such as when, whilst, and, but, because, although and so. 



Science this term will look at forces and magnets. We will: 

  • compare how things move on different surfaces
  • notice that some forces need contact between 2 objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance
  • observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others
  • compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials
  • describe magnets as having 2 poles
  • predict whether 2 magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing




We will learn about the Romans! 

We will look at invaders and settlers, the Roman's impact on Britain, the formations and clothing of a Roman Soldier and life in Rome. 



Our big question in RE will ask "How do Jews demonstrate their faith through their communities?"

We will look at: 

  • What happens at a Synagogue? Community Centre / place of study / prayer

  • What happens at Pesach (Passover) Story of Jews Exodus

  • What is Sukkot? God cares for all. Protection in desert

  • What rules for Jews follow in the Torah? Kosher


This term we have PE on a Tuesday with Mr Hall and on a Wednesday with Mr Kelly. 

Please make sure you have an indoor and outdoor kit with you on both days. 



Following the topic of the Romans, we will be making Roman tiles from Clay and looking at symmetry. 



Our topic is 'The Huey's new jumper,' talking about inclusion and acceptance of somebody;s individual liberty. We also have lessons on Picture News which allows us to discuss recent and relevant information from the news in a child friendly, informative way. Our My Happy Mind programme will be completed every Tuesday, helping with mental health in the classrooms through modules called 'Meet your brain' and 'celebrate.'



We will use animation to make our own film clips. 



We will learn the Ukulele this term with Mr Jolliffe.  


English Homework and spellings:

Homework is a little different this year as it will all be set online and not given back to your teacher. For English homework I will set weekly spellings online and provide you with a reading book for which you can keep for a week at home. The Lemur class will change their books every Friday so please make sure your reading book is in school that day. Even if you haven't managed to finish the book please do still bring it in so we can check your progress with it.
