Hi Year 3 😊

I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter Break! I can’t believe we are in our final term of the year. It’s gone by so fast. This half term our topic is ‘Romans’. We will be answering the question ‘Who were the Romans and why did they come to Britain?’.



In Literacy we will start our topic by looking at the book ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Christina Balit. We will explore what happened all those years ago and write our own newspaper report of the events that happened as well as a diary entry as one of the children who fled Pompeii.


In Maths we will be continuing to work with fractions before moving onto time. It would be a great opportunity to get the children a clock or watch for them to use at home to help them to practice their time skills.


In Science, we will be exploring rocks (a great opportunity to explore Mount Vesuvius), identifying different types of rocks, describing how fossils are formed and recognising that soils are made from rocks and organic matter.  


We will be researching and finding out all about the Romans and why they came to Britain and how Britain became apart of the Roman empire.


This half term PE will be on a Tuesday morning with Mr Gibbons and Wednesday afternoon when they attend Swimming lessons (Starting from Wednesday 27th April for 11 weeks).

Swimming – Children are to come to school in their PE kits as they would do on a normal PE day. They need to bring their swimming costumes and a towel with them. If they attend swimming lessons, please could they bring with them their swimming caps they got on the last level they were graded. This will help to identify the children’s swimming ability quicker on the first session. The children can bring with them a snack for the walk back to school after the session, they will definitely need it.
