Our Topic for the Spring Term is 'Horrible Histories, Rotten Romans'. Year 3 are going to be involved in their learning throughout the year. Our suggestions are;

  • Design a Roman Shield
  • Look at their alphabet and Language of Latin
  • Read and understand Roman Numerals
  • Make a sundial
  • Roman coins
  • Speaking with a Roman Q&A session
  • What medicine they used
  • The spread of the Roman Empire
  • Gladiators and the Roman Army
  • Daily life of Romans

and many more!


We will be working on our Literacy, Numeracy and Digital Competency throughout all subjects. Our RE sessions will focus on value for the half term which is Courage.


PE sessions are usally on a Tuesday and Thursday. However every 2nd Wednesday, Gateway Rugby will be coming in to teach Year 3 how to play Rugby. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school.


Working in Year 3 will be Mrs Robertson, Mrs Bradbury, Mrs Lo, Mrs Jerome, Mrs Kershaw, Mrs Jordan. We also have a student with us for Spring half term, Mr Pitt!


Miss Deakin will be covering every Wednesday afternoon.


Kind regards,


Mrs Robertson smiley




Spring 2 Homework


Year 3 are going to be set a project based homework about our upcoming topic 'Rotten Romans'. Information has been discussed with theclass and an email soon sent out that entails details of the task is any questions are asked.


The Homework is to create a Roman Villa. The children can use any medium for this e.g. clay, lego bricks, junk modelling or even computer software. These Villas will probably be delicate so please refrain from sending them in in poor weather conditions. Instead take a photo and email it to the school. We can all look at the children's fantastic designs in class. 


Some supervision may be needed to complete this homework but please encourage their independence where possible.


Have fun and get crafty!


Mrs Robertson and the Year 3 team.
