Lemurs - Year 3

Year 3

Hello Lemurs, 

Welcome to the Summer Term!                  





With Fractions we will

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.


With Time we will 

 tell and write the time from an analogue clock, including using Roman numerals from I to XII, and 12-hour and 24-hour clocks  estimate and read time with increasing accuracy to the nearest minute; record and compare time in terms of seconds, minutes and hours; use vocabulary such as o’clock, a.m./p.m., morning, afternoon, noon and midnight  know the number of seconds in a minute and the number of days in each month, year and leap year  compare durations of events [for example to calculate the time taken by particular events or tasks].


With Shape we will 

 draw 2-D shapes and make 3-D shapes using modelling materials; recognise 3-D shapes in different orientations and describe them  recognise angles as a property of shape or a description of a turn  identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and four a complete turn; identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle  identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines

With Capacity we will 

measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)




We will be studying the books 'the Great Paper Caper' and Duffy's Lucky Escape. 

They will both focus on the topic of Global Warming and Climate change. 



Pupils will 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


Geography and History

We will learn all about the Vikings and Look at the Mediterranean Countries. 



Our big question in RE will ask "What are the different roles of an angel in different religions?

and How is God presented in the Bible? 



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 making our own Healthy Sandwiches and then we will move on to make recycled cushions out of our own T Shirts!



Our topic is Global Warming and Charities. We will also complete Mental health and Recent and Relevant information Lessons. 



We will look at making word documents and an animated movie with sound behind. 



We will be playing instruments to read a scale and make Viking Music and then to make our own music for our film about Plastic Pollution. 


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 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.

Please complete the week that has been set online. 



Thank you,

Mrs Lea smiley
