Lemurs - Year 3

Year 3

Hello Lemurs,                    

Congratulations, you completed the first term of Juniors! 




Number - number and place value

Pupils will be taught to:

  • add and subtract numbers mentally, including:
    • a three-digit number and 1s
    • a three-digit number and 10s
    • a three-digit number and 100s
  • add and subtract numbers with up to 3 digits, using formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction
  • estimate the answer to a calculation and use inverse operations to check answers
  • solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value, and more complex addition and subtraction



We will be studying a film about a lighthouse and learning all about lighthouses. We will be using adverbs, preposition and noun phrases to write descriptions and stories about lighthouses. 



Pupils will be taught to:

 recognise that they need light in order to see things and that dark is the absence of light

 notice that light is reflected from surfaces

 recognise that light from the sun can be dangerous and that there are ways to protect their eyes

 recognise that shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object

 find patterns in the way that the size of shadows change.



In Geography we will be looking at where we live and using map knowledge such as ordnance survey skills and grid referencing. 



Our big question in RE will ask "Who were the disciples and how did they help Jesus."



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 DT we will use our knowledge of light and circuits to make a 3D lighthouse. 



Our topic is 'This is our house,' focussing on inclusion and discrimination. 



We will look at word processing, editing and adding to word documents to improve our presentation of work. 



We will look at the history of music through string instruments. 


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 Tuesday sp 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.
