This term our Topic is

The Romans

During this term children will be finding out who the Romans were and where they came from as part of their first history topic of Year 3. Children will incorporate geography skills to learn which countries this powerful Empire invaded and why, as well as learning about the differences between Celtic and Roman life. Children will find out about this forward-thinking group of invaders who can be credited for building the first roads, introducing laws – and even early-day toilets!

We will also be exploring what life was like for a typical Roman soldier, what they wore and what weapons they would have carried, complete with real artefacts in class to enhance their learning. Children will begin to build an in-class timeline to help document their findings which will also see them explore the Romans’ latter days in Britain to include Hadrian’s Wall and find out why the female warrior Boudicca remains so famous! Exciting things to look forward to include  an in-school Roman workshop helping to bring the Romans to life as well as a chance for children to make their own Roman villa and mosaic.

Our Science topic this term is

Animals including Humans

As part of the ‘Animals including Humans’ topic, children learn the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates and how they can be classified. The children will discover how the skeleton is vital for vertebrates in order to allow for support, movement and protection. Children will also learn the different names of the skeletal bones, as well as the job and scientific names of the muscular system. Children will explore how humans grow as they get older through a range of predictions and experiments.
