Autumn Term


Welcome back! Autumn term in Lomberg’s Lobsters is a fun packed and filled with so many interesting areas of learning! In English we will be reading and basing our writing on Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse, which fits in brilliantly with our World War One topic. We will recap and extend our knowledge of place value, decimals, geometry and addition/ subtraction. We will also cover multiplication, division, fractions, measure and time in the second half term.



In science we will discover the wonders of Earth and Space before moving on to study electrifying electricity! Our computing should provide an excellent opportunity to get creative as we learn about images, video and animation. In design technology the children will also get creative making their own felt purses/ phone cases. Art will take us to the seaside as we look at the artwork of Alfred Wallis. In music our topic is Mama Mia! We will be singing and learning about a range of songs before moving on to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air!


In PE we will be playing netball and learning some gymnastics. We also have Accrington Stanley in the second half term who are teaching the children games and fundamental movements. Our PSHE will focus on core skills and wellbeing whilst in RE we will begin studying Domestic Church Family before looking at Baptism & Confirmation.


In French we will look at hobbies and what the children enjoy to do in their spare time. We will also be beginning some transition afternoons at Mount Carmel for both year 4 and 5 children. This gives Lomberg’s Lobsters an amazing opportunity to use the facilities at the secondary school, to see what it is like for those who are considering going there when they leave St Mary’s and for children to meet and gain knowledge from amazing subject expert teachers.

Class Information


Welcome To Junior 3

Things to remember for Autumn term:
•P.E days are Monday and Tuesday. Please have a white T-shirt, black shorts and black pumps clearly named and always in school.
•Reading Books – In Lomberg's Lobsters the children have free choice of their home reading book from our class library (unless they are working on a specific scheme agreed with parents/carers). Their home reading book can be returned to class any day of the week once your child has completed the book and when the home reader diary has been signed by an adult.
•Spellings – Words will be sent home every Monday to be learnt and practised for their test on Friday. Each word needs to be written correctly three times and then put into a sentence to show understanding of the meaning and to encourage the use of these words in independent writing.
•Homework – Homework will go home every Wednesday and is to be returned completed by the following Monday. The work will be on a variety of curriculum areas and will support our class work. Please talk to your children about the work and ask them to explain to you what they are doing, as this will help their understanding.
