We are a Year three class of 29 children. Our class teacher is Mrs Morris and we have two teaching assistants called Mrs Marker and Mrs Scott (1:1). Please enjoy reading over all the exciting things we do in our class each term.
Each term we enjoy learning through a different topic. This gives us a purpose and helps us deepen our learning. Over the year we learn about a wide variety of interesting things. Below are some things we have learnt so far.
Term 4 - Our new topic is 'Mighty Metals'...
Some interesting websites about magnetism:
Term 3 - Our new topic this term is 'I am Warrior'...
To finish off this topic we had great fun on our Roman Day!
Here are some pictures to show all the activities we took part in to learn more interesting facts about the Romans. We enjoyed making shields and then taking part in Roman drills, making Roman dice using the roman numerals, Roman head wreaths and finally we made slave tags out of clay.
We have enjoyed watching videos about the Romans and beginning our research to deepen our learning. We have began by learning about Roman soldiers, Roman empire but there is lots more to learn. It is going to lead upto having a Roman Invasion Day where we will be presenting our own myths.
