Lemurs - Year 3

Year 3

Hello Lemurs, 

Welcome to the wonderful world of Juniors! 






We will be learning about Fractions 

Number - fractions

Pupils should be taught to:

  • 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 non-unit 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,  +  =  ]
  • compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
  • solve problems that involve all of the above



We will be studying the film and book The BFG. We will use interesting vocabulary and a range of sentences. 



We will learn about Food and Nutrition. 

Animals, including humans

Pupils should be taught to:

  • identify that animals, including humans, need the right types and amount of nutrition, and that they cannot make their own food; they get nutrition from what they eat
  • identify that humans and some other animals have skeletons and muscles for support, protection and movement



We will use orienteering to learn all about Maps. We will learn the dials on a compass and how to read ordnance survey maps. 



Our big question in RE will ask "Why did Jesus need disciples? "



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 be talking about healthy eating, learning the different food groups and designing and making a healthy sandwich. 



Our topic is individual liberty, learning that is OK to be different. We will do this through the book 'the Huey's new jumper.'



We will be coding to make games work. 



We will be learning the octave scale and playing do re mi on the glokenspiel! 


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.
