A very warm welcome to you and we hope that you will find this page both informative and exciting as we share your child's journey throughout Year 3.

Spring Topic

This term our topic is 'Roman Raiders'.

Continuing from our Stone Age to Iron Age topic in the autumn term, we will look at how Britain continued to change.

We will learn about about the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain at the time and the legacy it left us. Our homework mat will be full of lots of exciting activites that your child can do to help them understand this period in history even further. Homework mats have been sent home but this can also be viewed and downloaded from the files section below. 

English

We will be reading Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. 

This story will help us to travel back in time to view the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the Roman Empire, linking in with our geography topics of volcanoes and earthquakes. 

Maths

In maths this term we will be continuing to extend our knowledge of 3 digit numbers using addition, subtaction, multiplication and division.

We will be learning about Roman numerals and also properties of shapes when we study Roman mosaics. 

Times tables are very important and we will be practising them regularly. Ask your child what their 'Target Times table' is - this is the set of tables they are focusing on. Don't forget to log onto Times Tables Rockstars. Can you beat your previous score? Can you become a Rock Legend?
