Lemurs Y3

Welcome to Lemur's Class Page    Year 3


We are the Lovely Lemurs!

Miss Bacon 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 Spring Term.

Our thought provoking question for the Spring is:


What is the most powerful natural force?



Our English work in the first half term will be based around the book 'Escape from  Pompeii' exploring the use of description and speech in a narrative. We will use Talk for Writing to help us write our own narrative. We will then use our geography knowledge to write a information leaflet. During the second half term, we will carry on with our leaflets and write poetry. 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 Boy Who Grew Dragons by Andy Shepherd.




In Reading, we will be focusing on developing our reading skills and linking this with answering questions about a text. We will also be developing our knowledge further by exploring the features of different non-fiction texts. We will spend time discussing interesting words and phrases. During the second half term term, we will focus on Fiction looking at 'Varjak Paw'. We will focus on using our prediction skills and using inferences about a characters feelings and motives to explore the text further. 




The first half of the term focuses on developing our Multiplication and Division knowledge and Length and Perimeter.  During the second half term, we will move on to Fractions and Mass and Capacity. 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 learning about two different topics. Our first topic is called ‘The Power of Forces’  and we will be exploring how objects move and what materials are magnetic. Our second topic is ‘How does your garden grow?' and we will be exploring if all roots are the same, the purpose of leaves and stems and what would happen if a plant lost them. Throughout the Spring Term we will also revisit 'Our changing World' to monitor the changes in leaves and berries throughout the year.   



Geography (Topic)

Our thought provoking topic question this term will enable us to learn about the most powerful natural forces. We will learn about the features of the Earth and the Earth's climate zones. We will understand how volcanoes and earthquakes occur. We will also understand the difference between hurricanes and tornados and where all 4 natural forces may occur.




Our computing work will, as always, involve work around E-Safety and knowing how to stay safe online. Our main focus will be Data handling and developing a feelings chart. During the second half term our focus is to be confirmed.




Our RSHE work will centre around 'Caring and Responsibility' and ' Equality and Inclusion'. We will learn about how to be responsible, personal space and empathy.  During the second half term we will focus on 'Families and committed relationships'. We will discuss commitment and marriage, change and family changes such as separation.

In both half terms we will complete lessons on equality, inclusion and Esafety.



Art / DT

In our Art lessons, we will be learning about Margaret Godfrey and Nick Rowland. We will use this knowledge to create Volcano art using a range of mixed media.  As part of our DT work,  we will explore structures of houses to withstand a natural disaster. With this knowledge we will make our own house designed to withstand a disaster.




PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday with Mr Saleh outdoors. The focus of these sessions are to be confirmed. Please ensure correct PE kit is worn on these days. 




During this term the children will know about and understand religions and worldviews. Included in this we will explore Christianity and Islam further. Exploring the importance of Allah, The Lords Prayer and how both religions show their beliefs in the community.




Our French topic is called - 'Celebrations'.

The children will learn vocabulary based on this topic. This will include celebrations that occur each month in France and popular French activities and applying our knowledge to engage in conversation.




Our music themes are 'Three Little Birds' and during the second half term 'The Dragon Song'.



As you can see, we have a very busy Spring term ahead. Thank you very much for all your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
