Lemurs Y3

Welcome to Lemur's Class Page    Year 3


We are the Lovely Lemurs!

Mrs Moore is our class teacher and Mrs Revill is our teaching assistant.

We are very excited to be back and are looking forward to a busy SummerTerm.

Our thought provoking question for the Summer is:


Were there Woolly mammoths in Mansfield?



Our work this term will be based around three texts. These include How to wash a Woolly Mammoth, The Storm Unicorn and Stone Age Boy. Using the first we will explore what makes good instructions then write our own set of instructions on 'How to catch a woolly mammoth'. We will the write a non-chronological report on woolly mammoths before finally writing a narrative using ideas and techniques from our final text. We will use Talk for Writing to help us write our own narrative pieces. We will use role play to help us internalise the features and use our creative thinking when writing. We will continue to have a strong focus on handwriting, spelling, grammar and punctuation throughout the term.




        Our class book will be The Stolen Spear by Saviour Pirotta.






In our reading lessons we will explore a variety of Myths and Legends before returning to a selection of non fiction texts. We will be focusing on developing our reading skills and linking this with answering questions about a text. We will also be developing our expectations as a reader in both fiction and non-fiction texts. We will spend time discussing interesting words and phrases and also use our predicting skills from clues in the text. We will also focus on using our prediction and summarising skills and using inferences about the characters feelings and motives. 





The term we will be focusing on different Maths concepts. We will begin exploring fractions further before moving on to money, time, shape and finally statistics. It is essential during year 3 we can recall quickly our 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 4s and 8s times-tables.





In Science, we will be continuing to explore our 'How does your Garden Grow' topic learning where do new plants come from, seed dispersal and what do bees do. After the half term we will become 'Rock Detectives' learning about different types of rocks and how fossils are formed. We will will also continue to revisit 'Our Changing World' to monitor the changes in leaves and berries. 






Topic (History and Geography)

Our thought provoking topic question this term will enable us to learn about the history behind whether there were woolly mammoths in Mansfield. We will explore the eras between The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age and discover what life was like for early man. We will look at the hunter gatherer, farming and how life changed and developed in The Iron Age. In our geography lessons we will locate major UK cities and where Mansfield is before exploring how land is used in the UK before comparing to how it was used in The Stone Age.   



Our computing work will, as always, involve work around E-Safety and knowing how to stay safe online. Our main focus is yet to be confirmed.





Our RSHE work will centre around 'Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies' and 'Coping with Change'.  We will learn about the power of sleep, how to make healthy food choices before learning about germs! After the half term we will explore the ideas of new changes, feeling sad and showing empathy before exploring what happiness is.  

In both half terms we will complete lessons on equality, inclusion and E-safety. 


Art / DT

In our Art lessons, we will be learning about cave paintings. We will look at where they are found, what techniques and resources were used. We will use this to then design and create our own interpretations.





PE will be on a Wednesday with Express Coaching and Thursday with Lauren for Dance. Please ensure correct PE kit is worn on these days and be aware we will be outside for both sessions. 



During this term the children will know about and understand religions and worldviews. We will be learning about inspiring people in sacred texts and in the history of religion. We will further explore stories of Jesus and other inspiring people from the Christian Bible such as Moses, David and Jacob as well as  recalling Islamic stories telling of the life of the Prophet Muhammad.  





Our French topics this term are called - 'The Four Friends' and Growing Things'. 

The children will learn vocabulary based on these topics such as animal and vegetable names. We will link actions to relevant animals and link opinions to different vegetables. We will continue to apply our knowledge to engage in conversation.  





Our music themes are 'Bringing Us Together' followed by 'Reflect, Rewind, Replay'. We will continue to listen and appraise different types of music, learn new songs to sing continue to learn to play the Glockenspiel.






Homework will be set every Friday through our remote learning platform - SeeSaw.
