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 looking at measure before doing Fractions. 

You will: 

count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10  recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and nonunit fractions with small denominators  recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators  recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators  add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole [for example, 7 5 + 7 1 = 7 6 ]  compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators  solve problems that involve all of the above



We will look at non fiction texts using the book - In the Wild Garden - to write about plants and how they grow. Our main skill will be paragraphs and subheadings. 



Science this term will look at Plants and flowers which will link to our English and Art. 

Pupils should be taught to:

  • identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers
  • explore the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant
  • investigate the way in which water is transported within plants
  • explore the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal




In Geography we will be looking at maps. We will spent a lot of time outside orienteering. We will use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate countries and describe features studied  use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and key (including the use of Ordnance Survey maps) to build their knowledge of the United Kingdom and the wider world 



Our big question in RE will ask "What are the roles for angels in different religions?"



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. 



In Art we will look at Georgia O'keefe. We will look at primary and secondary colours, texture and shape of leaves and flowers and printing blocks and 2 colour prints using the book through Georgia's eyes. 



Our topic is 'Beegu' - knowing when to be assertive. 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 be reading and making data online using data logger and looking at our digital footprint. 



We will continue to learn the notes and beats to do re mi for the sound of music. 


English Homework and spellings:

Homework is  now set on Google Classroom and allows the children to interact freely with me and with other class mates.  For English homework I will set weekly tasks 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 Monday 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.
